Olathe West girls set state record at SM North Relays

The finish line is in sight! This week teams around the state head to their respective league meets for a final tune-up before regionals. Our next rankings will be the final true rankings of the season before we transition to the state qualifier list in our final week.

The Shawnee Mission North Relays Friday night featured one of the best 4x800m relays in state history. Olathe West took over the top-spot all-time in Kansas with a 9:17.40 in the 4x800m relay, and most of the 6A leaders set new times at the meet. West opens up a 16-second lead in Class 6A. DeSoto, St. James Academy, and St. Thomas Aquinas posted the top-three 5A times in the same race. West ended the night by cracking four minutes in the 4x400m relay as the only team in the state to do so this season.

In Goddard Friday, Andale junior Maddie Schrandt took over the 4A lead in the 200m dash in 26.19. Sophomore teammate Betsy Reichenberger claimed the No. 2 spot in 4A in 26.35 for the bronze. Wichita Northwest senior Deslyne Cooper won the race in 26.00. Schrandt just missed on her 4A-leading time in the 400m dash, winning by nearly two seconds in 58.86 ahead of Eisenhower freshman Harli Omli. Bishop Carroll junior Evan Nordhus won the 100m hurdles in 46.14, but Wichita Northwest sophomore Adryanna Shelby was still able to climb to the top spot in 6A with the silver in 46.23.

Friday in Hesston, Smoky Valley senior Abby Rose blazed through the 400m dash in 56.60 to take the state lead from Stanton County’s Chesney Peterson (2A). Reigning 3A 800m champion Gracie Lambert of Smoky Valley continues to make strides, expanding upon her class lead with a win Friday in 2:16.61. The Hesston girls ran a 50.14 in the 4x100 to take the 3A lead in a competitive class. Smoky Valley flexed its muscles in the other relays with comfortable class leads in both. The Lady Vikings ran the first sub-10 4x800 in 3A Friday.

Stanton County’s Peterson continues to hold large leads in many 2A track events. Tuesday in Burlington, Wabaunsee freshman Payton Wurtz cut Peterson’s 3200m lead in half with an 11:19.20 to climb to No. 2 in 2A. Wurtz also debuted in the 400m dash, running a 59.98 to move into the No.2  spot behind Peterson.
