Eagle Valley’s Ethan Daubs goes 14-1 in pole vault, takes the No. 1 spot (sports briefs)
Saturday, April 14’s preps wrap: Devils, track and lax; VMS soccer
GLENWOOD SPRINGS — So, Eagle Valley and Battle Mountain track and field appear to be playing a game of, “Anything you can do, I can do better,” in the pole vault.
On Thursday, April 12, Battle Mountain’s Wyatt Nelson went 14 feet in the vault in Loveland to post the best jump in 4A in the state. On Saturday, April 14, Eagle Valley’s Ethan Daubs went 14 feet, 1 inch at the Demon Invitational in Glenwood Springs.
At the end of Saturday, the Devils’ Daub was No. 1 in the state rankings, followed by Nelson, followed by Eagle Valley’s Joseph White, who went 13-6 back in March. The state vaulting meet is shaping up to be a very Eagle County affair down in Denver.
Given that Saturday was also prom for Eagle Valley, the Devils had a light day. Not surprisingly, Cassie Jarmillo was second in the discus and won the shot put.
Eagle Valley should be back to full strength when it heads to Fairview next week.
