Mile High League Meet

Gilpin High’s varsity track and field performers set a slew of new personal and school records at the Mile High League meet on May 5. Head track coach Craig Ball reported on the Eagles’ satisfying results.

“Nicole Adams jumped 4’6” and placed seventh in the high jump. She also ran the 100-meter dash, placing eighth,” Ball said. “Stephen King jumped 18’1” to place fifth in the long jump and also ran his fastest 400-meter race of the year, placing seventh with a time of 55.6.”

Coach Ball also noted that Austin Boulter has thrown over 36 feet in the shot put this year and placed fifth in that event at the league meet. He has also thrown over 104 feet in the discus and placed sixth at the league meet.

“Jack Ball placed second in the 400-meter and ran 52.08 for a new school record for the season. Jack also set a school record in the 800-meter with a 2:03.8 and placed fifth in this year’s league meet. In the 200-meter, Jack has set a new school record of 23.9 for the season and placed seventh in the league meet.”

The boys’ 4×200-meter relay team (Nolan Lindberg, Blake Boulter, Austin Boulter, and Stephen King) placed sixth, Ball said.

“In total, the Gilpin team racked up 32.5 points in the meet, which is the largest point total for a Gilpin track team since track was reinstated at Gilpin four years ago.”

The Eagles participated in the Joe Shields Invitational on Thursday, May 10; see next week’s edition of the Weekly Register-Call for results.
