Outstanding performances by Warriors

Outstanding performances by Warriors



Despite running two indoor track meets in four days last week, the South Winn boys’ track team showed considerable improvement.

“We were very pleased by the efforts given.  We had a number of outstanding performances for this early in the year,” said coach Scott Conway. “It's nice to see times, distances, and heights in March that we would expect at Districts.  

In all, the Warriors claimed six individual top spots including a pair of wins by senior Devin Franzen in the 800m and 1600m runs. Adding to the team’s success were Jordan Rommes in the high jump, Chris Brincks’ 55m hurdles, and Ben Meyer in the 400m dash. Jared Schroeder and Rommes tied at 6.73 in the 55m dash for the top prize.

Claiming silver for the Warriors were Brincks in the high jump, Meyer in the long jump, Mitch Herold in the 200m dash, and Nathan Meyer in the 800m run.

“This group has the potential to do some big things this year,” concluded Conway. “Over the course of the next several weeks, we need to figure out what kind of team we are going to be, and that will largely determine our overall success.”

Brincks cleared 6’0” in the high jump to take gold; Nathan Meyer earned the 800m run title in 2:06.17.

Showcasing incredible talent against much larger schools, the 4x400 and 1600 sprint medley teams also claimed first. Members of the 4x400 relay included Brincks, B. Meyer, Herold, and Franzen. Those running on the sprint medley team include Schroeder, Treyton Jacobsen, B. Meyer and Franzen.

“They are shaping up to add some key depth for us at the end of the year. Our older guys stepped up and turned in some outstanding performances. We had two different relay teams run a top-five time indoors since 2002,” Conway stated.
