Sidney boys, Chadron girls take team titles at Bayard B-C-D meet


BAYARD — The Sidney boys and the Chadron girls earned big wins in the Bayard B-C-D track and field meet on Friday, May 7.

They Sidney boys won eight of the 17 events in the boys division.

Connor Hartzler took home two golds for the Raiders. Hartzler took first in the 110-meter Hurdles with a time of 15.97, and ran the 300-meter Hurdles in 42.17 to pick up the win.

Sidney’s Treyson Johnstone and Jackson Russell took first and second in the 400. Johnstone edged out Russell with times of 52.92 and 53.16.

The Raiders claimed the top three spots in the 800 with Mitchell Deer taking the gold, followed by teammates Cameron Brauer in second and Johnstone in third.

In the 3,200, Daniel Bashtovoi ran away with the title with a blistering time of 10:23.32 ahead of Garden County’s Michael Christiansen at 11:07.88.

The Sidney 4x100 relay team of Sawyer Dickman, Jacob Dowse, Jackson Russell and Luke Holly claimed first with a time of 45.65.

Dowse also claimed the high jump title with a leap of 6-feet, 4-inches, and teammate Cameron Leeling won the long jump at 10-10.

Chadron’s Chayton Bynes was also a double gold medalist winning the 100 with a time of 11.34 and jumped 43-7 for the triple jump title. His mark in the triple jump was a personal record.

Bynes said he started the season on a strong note with a triple jump of 42-4.75 in Ogallala.

Gering tennis coach Ron Swank talks about his "accidental" tennis career in this week's In the Press Box.

“Then I started going down really hard,” he said.

Bynes, though, said he’s put in some hard work over the last few weeks to get his distances up on his jumps. He said he hopes to jump at least 44-feet by the end of the season.

In the girls division, Chadron’s Tatum Bailey won the high jump and triple jump to lead the Cardinals to the team title. Bailey cleared 5-4 in the high jump. In the triple jump, Bailey edged teammate Jayrah Ngoi for the title. Bailey had a leap of 33-11.25 and Ngoi’s best jump was 33-2.25.

Also picking up golds for Chadron were Kyndall Carnahan in the 800 and the 4x800 relay team of Makinley Fuller, Carnahan, Emma Witte and Mackenzie Anderson.

Sidney’s Karly Sylvester again dominated the throws winning the shot put with a throw of 40-11.5, and 121-9 for the discus title.

Bayard’s Dani Harter and Kierra Miller each picked up a pair of golds.

Harter took gold in the 100 and 200. Miller won the 1,600 and 3,200.
