Powers matches high jump PR at 6-4 in Stanfield spring meet


Bickleton’s Nathan Powers hasn’t seen much action so far in this track and field season. The Pirate senior has been sick off and on, missing two of Bickleton’s four meets. If the sick days have slowed him down, it is difficult to notice.

Last Saturday, Powers matched his personal record (PR) in the high jump, winning the event in Stanfield with a leap of 6-feet, 4-inches. He also won his other specialty, the 110 meter hurdles by a full two seconds over the runner up. Powers rounded out his day with two events he doesn’t normally run, finishing sixth in the 100 meters and sixth in the 200 meters.

Emily Hanson had a pair of PRs with a 12th place finish in the shot put, her first throw beyond 25-feet, with a toss of 25-11, and 13th in the javelin at 67-10. Hanson was also sixth in the discus. Teammate Hannah Delbrook was sixth in the javelin at 78-1 and 11th in the 200 meters. Katrina Cardenas’ 77-1 throw in the javelin was seventh place and she was 13th in the shot put.

Bickleton’s boys placed sixth as a team at the meet. Andrew Gannon was second in the 3000 meters in his first race at the distance, and Kyle Underwood was second at 5-8 in the high jump and third in the long jump at 18-7. Riley Brown was third in the triple jump at 36-5 and Troy Roberts was fifth in the pole vault at 9-6 and sixth in 800 meters. The relay team of Brown, Michael Bowers, Underwood and Roberts was fifth in the 4x400 in 4:10.76.

Other finishes for the Pirates: Underwood 16th in 100 meters; Brown 17th in 100 meters, 7th in long jump; Bowers 27th in 100 meters, 18th in shot put, 22nd in discus; Roberts 8th in discus; Michael Gannon 8th in 1500 meters, 9th in pole vault, 23rd in javelin; Andrew Gannon 9th javelin; Delbrook 16th in 100 meters and 32nd in shot put; Hanson 23rd in 100 meters, Cardenas 26th in 100 meters.

Bickleton competes this Saturday beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Pasco Invitational at Edgar Brown Stadium.
