The Terry High School track team traveled to Glendive on Friday and Saturday to compete in the Elk’s Invitational two-day meet. Again, Terry competed against all classes of schools in addition to teams from North Dakota.
After scoring seventeen points, the Terrier boy’s squad placed number one amongst the Class C schools competing.
Tanner Stickel ran the 110 meter hurdles on Friday to qualify for Saturday’s finals, ending up in fifth place with a time of 17.10. Stickel also placed third in the triple jump with his best jump so far this year of 40’51/2”.
Jerett Freiboth and Mike Poucher both advanced to the finals in the javelin placing fourth and sixth, respectfully. Freiboth threw 155’3” while Poucher tossed the javelin 152’6”.
“I can’t say enough about these three boys being so consistent,” head coach Leann Lantis said, referring to Stickel, Freiboth, and Poucher. She also stated the fact that in several events, fifty-plus kids participated in each event. To place in the top ten out of fifty athletes is quite an accomplishment, Lantis noted.
Also participating in the meet for the boys were David Hyer and Weston Leudtke.
Robbyn Reukauf and Tasha Larsen were the only girls representing Terry as the remainder of the team was attending the State Music Festival. Reukauf ran the 1600 meter run, the 110 meter hurdles, and was in the long jump. Larsen competed in the long jump and the high jump.
Terry will be back to a full squad for this weekend’s final meet in Miles City May 9 before they gear up for the District meet.
