CIK Boys Track Tracker: Week Five
The day had to come. Friday finally treated track and field athletes to some spring-like weather. The result is a re-ordering of most sheets, especially in the middle distance events.
Of national leaders, Sterling senior Tyus Wilson raised the high jump bar an inch to clear 7-3 Friday in Hillsboro. He moves to third all-time in Kansas with his new best.
In El Dorado, Wichita Heights senior Elijah Mosely became one of just two runners to crack 1:55 in his 800m debut. Gardner-Edgerton senior Quenton Walion cut four seconds off his previous best to take the lead from Mosely in 1:54.02.
Back in Cheney, Augusta junior Sawyer Schmidt took over the Class 4A lead in both the 1600 and 3200m races. In Classes 5A and 6A, a sub-10 is now required to crack the top-16 in the 3200m.
But the most exciting races came over the weekend in Leavenworth at the Trials for Miles. Olathe South’s Riley Vandaveer took over the state lead in the 1600m run in 4:18.04. Southeast of Saline’s Dylan Sprecker finished fifth in 4:23.27, five seconds off his previous best that lead Kansas.
