A Fremont County Split at RHS

    A gorgeous afternoon for track and field competition was interrupted by gale force winds during the high school girls 800 800-meter run. The blast, estimated at 65 miles per hour, sent debris and equipment flying, but aside from a brief case of “bad hair day” the Lady Wolverines and Lady Tigers powered through it.

    Riverton hosted the annual dual meet between the longtime rivals and it came out as a split, with the Riverton boys taking the win 78-58 and the Lander girls pulling away from Riverton for an easy 94-42 win.

    The Lander girls dominated most events, sweeping the 1600-meter run and almost sweeping the 400, and 800-meter races.

    Only Riverton senior Kiana Swann was able to break up the Lady Tiger domination in these three events.

    Swann was a Wolverine in a sea of green, Lander green that is, in the 400 where she placed third, and the 800-meter run where she ran away from the Lander team to win by nine seconds in the near hurricane conditions.

    In the most anticipated race of the day, Riverton sophomore hurdler Addison Alley faced talented Lander freshman Paisley Hollingshead in the 100-meter race. Alley won by a stride, but Hollingshead tallied a pair of first-place finishes, clearing 5-0 in the high jump and winning the 300-meter hurdles by three seconds over Riverton’s Samantha Ablard.

    The most impressive performance on the girls’ side of the meet came from Lander sophomore Adelyn Anderson who threw a career-best in the shot with a heave of 43-9.5.

    The Riverton boys took the dual by 20 points behind strong performances in the distance races and the throws.

    Kaden Chatfield led the 1600 meter run – h/t Randy Tucker

    Kaden Chatfield won the 1600 and 3200-meter runs, placed in the 800, and ran a leg of Riverton’s winning 4×400-meter relay.

    Kayden Liebrecht and Nathan Mills won the shot and discus respectively for the Wolverines but the performance of the day came from Lander senior Reed McFadden who won three events.
