FAIRVIEW — Richey-Lambert’s boys track and field team made a statement to several Eastern C teams at Friday’s Fairview High School Invitational track and field meet, as the Fusion ran away with the team title, outscoring second-place Scobey 159-48.
The Fusion showcased tremendous depth across both track and field events on Friday afternoon. Richey-Lambert placed at least two athletes in the top six of every track event, except for the 110- and 300-meter hurdles.
Samuel Smith claimed a victory in the 800-meter run in 2 minutes, 17.80 seconds and placed second in the 1,600 (5:03.70) to teammate Chase Brown, who won in 5:03.64. Brown also won the 3,200 in 11:10.26.
The Fusion cleaned up in the sprints, too. Casey Cayer, Blaine Frisbie and Bryce Reitz finished second, fourth and fifth in the 100-meter dash, respectively. Reitz won the 200 in 24.52 seconds, while Casey Cayer, Frisbie and Garrett Cayer placed 4-6. Garrett Cayer and Reitz finished 3-4 in the 400, while teammate Seth Prevost finished fifth. Richey-Lambert claimed both the 400-meter relay (46.12) and 1,600-meter relay (3:43.97).
Casey Cayer was Richey-Lambert’s lone field event winner, claiming the triple jump with a leap of 42 feet, 0.25 inches.
The girls team race was much closer than the boys, as Westby-Grenora held off Fairview, 86-82, to claim the title.
Westby-Grenora was led by a trio of victories by freshman Elizabeth Field. Field won the 100 (13.61 seconds), 200 (28.98) and 400 (1:02.78). Teammate Jenna Rust finished second to Field in the 200 but claimed the 300 hurdles in 49.58. Rust also placed second in high jump and discus.
