Devils, Huskies find good results at Mickey Dunn

GRAND JUNCTION — Eagle Valley coach Jeff Schroll doesn’t look at at this time of year.

There will be a time when he is glued to the computer, hitting refresh constantly with the state-qualifying top 18 times or distances in events in mind.

“From year to year, I know what the entry points are,” the coach said. “Our coaching staff is really excited because we feel like we’re three weeks ahead of things.”

That’s a way of saying Schroll doesn’t need to look at milesplit to know that his boys 1,600-meter relay team had a good time of 3 minutes, 38.20 seconds at Saturday, March 31’s Mickey Dunn Invitational.

He knows that 8:38 is a really good place for the boys’ 3,200 team to be.

“And Cassie is Cassie,” he added.

That would be Cassie Jaramillo sweeping the discus and the shot put.

It’s amazing what one can go in warm weather at 5,000 feet without major wind.

Meanwhile, the Huskies got their first look at Sabrina Sutter, who had been finishing her ski season. She won the 200, tied a school record in the long jump and was on two point-scoring relay teams.

It’s still early, but with the Huskies’ prowess in distance established, seeing points in the sprints and other events is good sign.

Along those lines, Gabby Trueblood got her first 400 start of the season and topped the podium.

For the guys, the Huskies’ Max Christenberry was a highlight. He threw the discus 152 feet, 2 feet short of Josh Henry’s school record.

Battle Mountain is breaking up the gang for next week. The team’s elite women and James Moran will be heading to the Arcadia Invite in California. Some of the Huskies will be at the Mullen and the final third at the Eagle Valley Invite.

The Devils, of course, will be happy to be home.

“We’re all geared up,” Shroll said. “There should be some great performances.”
