GLIDE — The Glide boys and girls track teams swept a six-team track and field meet Thursday at the Glide track complex.

The Wildcat boys ran away from runner-up North Douglas for a 173-105 team victory, while Glide’s girls edged the Warriors 131-119 to take the girls’ team title.

There were impressive marks posted in both meets, especially on the boys’ side.

Glendale junior Elijah Wytcherly posted a pair of personal records, including winning the high jump with a mark of 6 feet, 2 inches, which tied him for the best Class 1A height in the state with Joseph’s Reece Nelson, who also cleared 6-2 in a meet Thursday. Wytcherly also had a PR in the 110-meter high hurdles, with a winning time of 17.22 seconds which moved him to No. 4 in Class 1A.

North Douglas sophomore Cade Olds won the javelin with a throw of 150-7, which moved him to No. 2 in Class 1A. Olds also won the 200 in a personal-best time of 25.26.

Fellow Warrior Palu Rayon-Wilder won the 100 and 400 for North Douglas, clocking a PR of 11.71 seconds in the 100, good enough to move to fourth in the 1A rankings.

Glide junior Clay Mornarich swept the long and triple jumps, with his personal-best distance of 36-9 in the triple jump moving him into the top 10 among Class 2A leapers.

In the girls’ meet, North Douglas dominated on the track, especially in the sprints. Sophomore Tabitha Baker posted a pair of PRs in winning the 100 and 200, with both of her times moving her to No. 8 among Class 1A sprinters in each event.

Glide’s depth and strength in the throws helped the Lady ‘Cats to the team win, as junior Kylie Anderson posted wins in the shot put and discus. Anderson’s PR of 90-9.5 in the discus moved her to No. 8 in the Class 2A rankings, and her winning mark of 32-0 pushed her to No. 6, four inches shy of a PR she set during the 2019 season.

In the javelin, Douglas freshman Kambree Lee posted a winning mark of 89-5, a personal best. Senior teammate Mackenzii Phillips won both the long and triple jumps for the Trojans, who were third in the team standings with 67 points.
