Red Devil assistant coach Jakin Hill watches as Dawson County High School senior Jayden Holley throws the shot put at Saturday’s Jock Stop Track Meet in Glendive. Holley had an excellent performance Saturday, winning the shot put, earning second in the discus and third in the javelin. His thrower’s relay team also earned first place.

The freshman boys on the track and field team from Dawson County High School shined last Saturday in the Jockstop Twilight Invitational at the Oakland Athletic Conference Glendive.

On Tuesday, DCHS head coach Tom Temple wrote in email that it was “great to see those kinds of marks out of those young kids.”

Freshman Cameron Egan had a solid afternoon as he placed ninth in the 100 meters (12.26), fourth in the high jump (5-06.00) and sixth in the long jump (18-03.75). Also, he helped the 4x100 relay team place fourth

(46.23) and the 4x400 relay team place fifth (3:42.92). Also, freshman Basil Crisafulli placed sixth in both the 400 meters (57.99) and the 800 meters (2:15.62). He set personal records in each event and “ran an impressive” time in the 800, his first time ever running it, Temple wrote. And another freshman in Colton Nagle placed 10th in the 400 meters (59.78), eighth in high jump (5-00.00) and fourth in the triple jump (38-00.00).

Upperclassman proved successful as well. Senior Jayden Holley “capped a stellar day” as he placed first in the shot put (51-05.50), second in the discus, with a new personal record (146-08) and third in the javelin (140-09), Temple wrote. Senior Ase Ackerman also impressed by placing fourth in the 3200 meters (10:17.66).

For the DCHS girls, senior Jaley Wyse was named Athlete of the Meet after winning both the 200 meters (26.91) and the 300 meter hurdles

(46.87). “You won’t find a more humble, hard-working and deserving student-athlete than Jaley, so she was very deserved of that award,” Temple wrote.

Senior Emily Kuehn performed well in her distance runs by placing first in the 800 meters (2:27.39) and second in the 1600 meters (5:23.78), Temple wrote. Also on the girl’s side, sophomore Karsen Murphy “cleared her season’s best” for the win (5-02-00,) and sophomore Savannah Toms “wasn’t too far behind that for third place (4-10-00.)”

The entire DCHS team “ended up running the Jock Stop meet scheduled for Friday evening on Saturday because of the cool, wet weather forecast,” Temple wrote. Saturday turned out to be an ideal kind of a weather day for the running events, but not so much for the field. Field events and sprints typically do better with warmer days.” Temple added: “As a result some of the distance times were phenomenal, especially the boys and girls 3200m races.”

Overall, the Red Devils placed fifth (59 points) among six teams, behind Lewistown in third (87), Sidney in second (115) and Miles City in first (145). The Lady Red Devils fared better as they placed third (89) behind Lewistown (101) and Laurel (146).

In other news, eight members of the team have since qualified for 10 events in the Eastern A and Central A Divisionals scheduled for May 18-19 in Glendive.

The top 10 placers in individual events and the top eight relay teams will qualify for the State Tourney to be held in Laurel next week.
