Ameya Eddy Class 3-A State Champion

 Lander sophomore Ameya Eddy is a state champion. The fleet-footed Lander Tiger ran away from the field in winning the Class 3-A race by over 10 seconds. Entering the race, senior Ryann Smith of Rawlins was the heavy favorite, but Eddy ran an excellent race in taking the title.

At the 1.7-mile mark of the 3.1-mile race, she trailed Smith by about 25 meters, but over the final section of the race she steadily gained on the Carbon County senior and pulled away in the last few hundred yards before entering the chute for the final 150 meters of the race.

She led the Lady Tigers to a fourth-place finish overall, behind Cody, Evanston, and Powell.

She was one of three Fremont County athletes to finish in the top 10 in their prospective divisions and in the process earn all-state honors.

St. Stephen’s Nehemiah Divers was 10th in the Class 2-A boys, and Riverton junior Caden Chatfield was ninth after running in second place behind Mountain View’s Owen Burnett for most of the race. As Chatfield entered the final chute he collapsed on the course. It took him several seconds to regain his balance, and he began to walk, and then jog toward the finish line. In spite of the problem, Chatfield was ninth in Class 3-A.

The story of the meet came in the Class 2-A boys race. There were no Fremont County runners in the top 10 as the race boiled down to a three-team battle between the combined Rocky Mountain/Burlington team, Saratoga, and Tongue River.

The combined Big Horn County team edged the Saratoga squad by the narrowest of margins 28 to 29, Tongue River was a distant third.

Saratoga was paced by senior twins Grant and Grady Bartlett who finished first and second. Grant’s win completed a high school sweep with state championships in all four years of competition.

With the state title on the line, the Panthers had Calvin Condict and Brayden Barkhurst finish 12th and 14th respectively. Added to the one-two finish by the Bartlett twins it gave them 28 points.

Howard, Brian, and Paul McNiven, all from Burlington High school, finished third, sixth, and 15th. Teammate Grant Winters, also from Burlington, was fourth and their total placings added up to 28, and they won the state title by a single point in the process.
