Baldwin High School track teams claim Eudora titles

April 29, 2015

After two weeks of competition against the state and Midwest’s best at the Pre-State Classic in Wichita and Kansas University Relays, the Baldwin High track teams pitted themselves against peers last Thursday at Eudora.

Both teams won titles in the nine-team meet. The girls finished with 159 points, which was 48 more than second-place De Soto. The boys racked up 145 points with second-place Piper earning 117.

“I was very happy with all the groups,” boys coach Mike Spielman said. “Christian Gaylord had a personal record in the shot put, and we won all three relays.”

Between them, the boys and girls teams claimed all but one of the relay events at the meet.

Claiming gold were Caden Carmack, Joel Halford, Dakota Helm and Darius Johnson in the 4-by-400 meters; Noah Watson, Carmack, Halford and Johnson in the 4-by-100; and Joe Pierce, George Letner, Parker Wilson and Helm in the 4-by-800.

Letner added a silver medal in the 1,600 and was the first Bulldog across the line in a first-, second- and third-place sweep in the 3,200 meters.

The girls team of Kyna Smith, Abby Ogle, Faith Peterson and Carlyn Cole won the 4-by-400 meter and 4-by-800 meter team of Addie Dick, Ogle, Emma Grossner and Peterson won gold.

Dick was also first in the 1,600-meter run.

BHS teams were equally selfish about sharing gold in the throwing events, again winning 5-of-6 events.

Gaylord once agaiearned double gold in the shot put and discus. He again topped the 50-foot mark in the shot, with a winning effort of 52-01. His winning discuss mark was 162-11.

Senior Alexia Stein matched Gaylord’s effort, also winning titles in the shot (40-08.50) and the discus (132-08). Senior Jordan Hoffman won sliver in the shot (32-07.08) and junior Asheigh Kramps was fourth (31-05). The trio of Stein, Hoffman and Kehl swept the discus with Stein’s winning throw traveling 132-08.

Hoffman remained consistent in the javelin, winning the event with a throw of 130-06. Kehl was second at 124-09.

The BHS teams were back in action Monday at a Spring Hill triangular event with Osawatomie. Many of the school’s top performers sat out the event because of state limits on the number of meets students are allowed to compete in each year. The rule and the triangular’s policy of allowing schools to enter an unlimited number of athletes in events, allowed many younger students a chance to compete, said girls coach Ted Zuzzio.

Although there was no team scoring, his team “competed very well,” he said.
