Gose wins, Weaver and Whiteplume second at Natrona Indoor

    The opening indoor track meet of the 2023 season had some early outstanding performances by athletes from Riverton and Lander at the Natrona County Invite last weekend. Timing and recording problems delayed results for several days but didn’t diminish the efforts of the Tigers and Wolverines.

    Lander has their own team this season after combining in years past and it was no surprise the hurdling phenom Gage Gose would pick up where he left off last spring in Casper.

    Lander’s Matisse Weaver was runner-up in the 400-meter dash – {h/t Christy Chatfield)

    Gose won the 55-meter hurdles in 7.30 seconds, then added a second-place finish in the 200-meter dash.


    Teammate Matisse Weaver also tallied a runner-up finish in the 400-meter dash for the Tigers.

    Riverton was paced by junior distance runner Kaden Chatfield with a third in the 800-meter run and a fifth in the 1600.

    Kaden Chatfield placed in both the 800 and 1600 meter runss – {h/t Christy Chatfield)

    Hayden Prettyman took fifth place for the Wolverines as well in the 400-meter dash.

    Davis Spoonhunter and Alexander Truax were seventh and eighth in the 3200-meter run, and a trio of Wolverines placed in the field events.


    Watie Whiteplume had an outstanding early season effort in clearing 6-0 to take second in the high jump.

    Kiana Swann and Madison Fossey took a turn in the 1600-meter run – {h/t Christy Chatfield)

    Carson Brost was third in the triple jump and Xavier Garcia eighth in the shot put.

    For the girls, Lander had all the county scorers with Avery Crane and Avery Bever seventh and eighth in the 200-meter dash, and Ellie Kaufman seventh in the 400-meter dash.
