Webb, Erickson, Dean win the gold for C-N

No team scoring was available at press time.

Jake Webb and Tyler Erickson were the two Royals to take first in an even in the boys’ competition. Webb won the discus and Erickson took first in the 400-meter low hurdles.

In the discus Webb peaked with a throw of 126 feet, seven inches. That easily beat the runner-up throw of 112 feet even by CAL’s Ben Farhmann.

The 400 low hurdles saw Erickson prevail with a time of 59.5 seconds. That time was nearly a second faster than the runner-up time of GMG’s Devon Schuett.

Erickson also won a silver in the open 400 and anchored Colo-Nesco to a third-place finish in the shuttle hurdle relay.

In the 400 Erickson clocked in at :54.2 seconds. Erickson only lost to winner Nicholas Jeffers of Northeast Hamilton by one one-hundredth of a second and third-place finisher Johnny Davis of Dunkerton was right behind Erickson with a time of :54.5 in a very tightly-contested race.

Noah Gibbons, Grant Tiarks and Brady Stoeffler ran the first three legs of the shuttle hurdle for Colo-Nesco. The Royal team ended up with a time of 1:10.1.

Erickson just missed medaling in the 800 as well. He placed fourth with a time of 2:17.4.

Michael Starling added a fourth-place finish in the discus as his best throw was 100-4. The Royal 4 X 800 relay team of Brady Stoeffler, T.J. Duncan, Josh Morrow and Kevin Hapes placed sixth in 9:54.4.

Shayla Dean gave the Royal girls a gold medal and the Riese sisters combined for three silvers in the girls’ competition.

Dean won the girls’ 400 in 1:01.3. Her time just edged the 1:01.8 by Dunkerton’s Dani Reicherts for first.

Dean also anchored Colo-Nesco to a bronze medal in the sprint medley relay. Maggie Kaiser, Olivia Key and Caitlan Clark joined her to produce a time of 2:00.2 which was less than a tenth of a second behind Dunkerton for second and right at one-tenth of a second in back of Don Bosco’s winning time.

Dean delivered a sixth-place finish in the 800 as well. Her time was 2:36.5.

Sam Riese was second in both the shot put and discus and teammate Devin Francis took third in each event.

Sam’s best throw in the shot was 33-5.5 and Francis peaked at 31-2.5. Janesville’s Ashlyn Moen won with a toss of 36-10.5.

In the discus Sam peaked at 96-5 and Francis’ best effort was 94-10. Northeast Hamilton’s Jennifer Jeffers was the winner of the event with a throw of 97-11.

Caitlyn Riese grabbed the silver in the high jump after clearing 4-10. GMG’s Caitlin Appelgate won with a season-best jump of 5-4.

Hannah Buseman gave Colo-Nesco a fifth-place finish in the 400 hurdles with a time of 1:17.7. Buseman and Caitlyn helped Colo-Nesco ad a fourth-place finish in the shuttle hurdle as Brandi Erickson and Brittnee Packer joined them to run a 1:19.3.
