Some good times and marks were turned in by the junior high boys’ track team from Chase County at their season opener last Thursday.
No team scores were kept at the Dundy County/Stratton meet, but the top eight finishers in each division came home with medals.
Chase County athletes brought home a lot of those ribbons.
Highlighting the meet for the Shorthorns was a double record-breaking showing in the eighth grade shot put.
Both Eli Hinojosa and Jack Bauerle broke the meet record in the shot. Hinojosa won the event with a toss of 42’-7 3/4”, while Bauerle took second with a 42’-7” throw.
Today (Thursday) the Chase County athletes will be in Grant for the Perkins County meet starting at 8:30 a.m.
