The rest of the state has yet to see the full brunt of Dillon’s track and field talent. Coach Jeremy Anderson, in an effort to keep his athletes healthy and fresh, does not push them to go in all events, all out, at all meets. Instead, he’ll have the athletes do some events one meet and other meets the next meet, breaking the burden into two days similar to a state track and field meet.

The Butte Central John Tomich Invitational on Saturday was a great example. Ainsley Shipman did not compete in many of her regular events but did run the 100 meters for the first time this season, and won.

Treyton Anderson, a senior with the state best times in 200 meters, both hurdle races, and as a member of the 4X400 relay, ran for the first time since middle school in the 400 meters. He won the race in a Class A best for this season, 50.14. He improved his all-class best and school record best time in the 200 meters to 22.04. He just recently wrested the record from Troy Andersen. Andersen enjoys Class A best times in five events.

Callahan Hoffman had his best put of the shot this season to win the event at the Tomich and then improved from second to first in the all-class rating with a discus throw of 165-08 to win the event at Butte.

Gavin Garrison, a junior competing in track for the first time since middle school, has become an integral part of Dillon’s top-ranked 4X400 meter relay team, and improved his standings in the 800 meters with a third place finish.

Kyle Jones is becoming a threat in the javelin with a second place finish, while Treyton Graham continues to show potential in the pole vault.

Shipman and sisters Jordyn and Sydney Petersen racked up big points in the hurdles, Sydney won the triple and Lauryn was second in the pole vault.

Dillon hosts their own invitational this Saturday at Vigilante Field.
