The Dillon track and field squads enjoyed a successful Saturday at Missoula. The girls dominated their side of the meet for first place, while the boys just missed the title by less than three points at the Seeley-Swan Invitational.

“We got a few of our kids back in the mix,” said Dillon coach Jeremy Anderson. “Again, we’re trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together. We say a few things this weekend that are definitely additions to what we’ve already done or are good surprises.”

The boys relays were one of those good surprises. Anderson went into the meet with a goal to state qualify all four of the team’s relays. Eli Nourse, a sophomore who runs the leadoff leg on both the 4X100 and 4X400 relays, had a minor injury running to sixth place in the 100 meters and sat out for the rest of the meet. Anderson went to alternate runners and both relays finished first with state qualifying times.

“Caden Hansen stepped up in the 4X100 and freshman Max Davis stepped up in a big way in the boys 4X400 and they were able to win in a qualifying time,” said Anderson. The 4X400 relay stands as the best time in the state.”

Treyton Anderson is the money man on the boys team. He won both the 100 and 200 this time around, and in other meets has swept both hurdles races. He ran on both relays and will likely contribute over 40 team points at the state meet.

On the girls side, Ainsley Shipman is overcoming an injury and will emerge as the top point person for the Lady Beavers. Shipman placed first in both the 100 meter hurdles and the triple jump, and second in the 300 hurdles. She is also a key member on the relays.

Mikelle Mosher won the 3,200 and placed fourth in the 1,600, adding key distance running points to Dillon’s mix that weren’t there in the past.

Freshman Sydney Petersen finshed third in the long jump with a state qualifying distance, and she added a third in the 200 meters, and a second in the 100 meter hurdles.

Numerous Twin Bridges athletes enjoyed success at the meet including Tate Smith who won the 100 meter hurdles and placed in four events.

Dillon competes at Butte on Saturday.
