DAYTON – The first day of spring, March 20, was also the first track meet for the West Side Pirates. American Falls and Aberdeen came to Dayton.
This week the Pirates have two meets. The first meet is held at home on Tuesday, March 25, for the freshmen and sophomore track athletes.
On Wednesday and Thursday the varsity athletes compete at the Cache Box meet at Utah State.
At the meet, many of the Pirates did exceptionally well and some re-established their previous positions. Some surprised their coaches. In field events, Coby Roholt took first in the discus and Mason Gittins placed second in both the discus and shot put. Jarren Miller won the pole vault.
He was followed by teammate Wyatt Beckstead. West Side high jumpers Matt Turnbow and Josh King tied for first. Freshman Devin Kent won the girls’ high jump. Another freshman, Saige Fredrickson, won the long jump.
On the track the Pirates proved they are a team to be reckoned with.
Senior Casey Rich won the girls’ 100 meter dash with a time of 13.52 and sophomore Taya Nash came in right behind her with at time of 13.84.
