BCHS has 80 kids out for track and field

The Dillon track and field teams are off and running, and jumping and throwing. The power program in recent years will look to add to their haul of state meet trophies (boys 1st in 2016, 2nd in 2017 and girls 3rd in 2017), with 80 of the school’s 302 enrollment participating in the spring sport. There are 47 boys and 33 girls competing for coach Tammi Myers.

With 10 practices needed to be eligible to compete in the first meet of the season and only 11 practices in the books so far this spring, a number of athletes did not make the trip over the hill. The Dillon girls were third and the boys were fourth at Corvallis.

Myers described the highlight of the meet for her as the girls 100 meters. Tylia DeJohn, a sophomore speedster, tripped coming out of the blocks and fell to her hands on the track. She popped up and continued down the track to win the race with a state meet qualifying time.

“She has a fierce competitive nature and that effort was insane,” said the coach. “I’ve coached track for 28 years and I’ve never seen that happen before.”

The teams do not have a meet this weekend due to Easter, and will return to the track at Frenchtown on April 7.
