Devils track sweeps meet at home

GYPSUM — On Saturday, Eagle Valley track and field coach told his girls 1,600-meter relay team, “Run fast and turn left.”

That, folks, is coaching.

And since the Devils’ 1,600 is so “coach-able,” well, they did win, and the Eagle Valley’s ladies edged Battle Mountiain by 3.5 points at Saturday’s Eagle Valley Invite. That gave the Devils a sweep as the boys cruised — they probably had the meet clinched at noon. And thus, it was a happy day for all those in black and red.

“For as hard as the kids worked leading up to our home invitational, that was an awesome thing to see, seeing all 143 athletes participate,” Shroll said. “I’m proud of them.”

Eagle Valley’s Cody Osteen had a pole-vaulting school record. Dominic Patterson was 14-hundredths of a second of a long-standing school record in the 800.

What A Throw

For Battle Mountain, the big news continues to be the throwing of the discus and shot put. The Huskies girls have won three regional titles without getting any points in throwing, and here come Jessica Cuomo and Ali Teague. Couomo won Saturday’s shot, and both placed in both throwing events.

Battle Mountain juggled its athletes in a lot of the running events.

“You can’t run a two-mile every single week,” Huskies coach Rob Parish said. “Putting the long distanace runners in short events works on speed. Putting the sprinters in longer events helps endurance.”

Saturday was Vail Christian’s opener and coach Tim Pierson said that many of his athletes were near their best times and distances of last season. And Taylor Alexander can still vault. The defending 1A state champion hurt her hamstring about three weeks ago. The Saints are taking it slow, but Alexander won on Saturday with a leap of 10 feet, 7 inches. That easily qualifies her for state, so now she can focus on getting ready for the sprints.
