Three long standing North Sevier High School records were broken this past weekend by athletes at the Mr. Mac 2022 BYU invitational and Coach Eric Mason said his heart is full after the amazing weekend.
“It was incredible to say the least,” said Coach Eric Mason. “On Friday, May 6 Blaine Anderson, junior at NSHS, broke a 46 year old shot put record held by Rick Robinson (46-06) and threw a 47-00!! Then as an encore he obliterated his PR in the discus by 11 feet with a 135-00 throw. Let’s goooooooo! Saturday, May 7 Keaton Hallows broke the second school record in the 1600M race, running a 4:33.89. The previous record was a 4:34.68 which has been standing since 1989. I’m so proud of Keaton and everything he is accomplishing. He wanted this and the 4×400 meter relay school record and it happened on the same day!! Well done, Keaton. I appreciate everything you are doing for the team! Also on Saturday, Kamden Saling , Ethan Fielding, Keaton Hallows, and Greyson Bennett absolutely put on a show and broke the 4×400 meter relay school record that has been standing since 1997 with a time of 3:32.89. the old school record they broke was 3:36.21!!! Fun fact…. Kade Hallows was on the 1997 team and ran the 3rd leg of the relay. Keaton Hallows, who is Kade’s son, ran the 3rd leg when the record was broken. Way cool. Coy Shaw needs to be mentioned here as he was instrumental in running this relay this year with this great group of guys. Well done guys. Sooo proud of you and love every one of ya!!”
The girls 4×400 relay team (Cale Torgerson, Ciarra Anderson, Avery Smith, and Trey Torgerson) ran an outstanding race with a 4:16.50 time and placed 6th in a really tough 1A-3A field!
“That was the quickest time in 2A and a PR of 10 seconds! Every one of those girls ran sooo hard. They are only 7 seconds from the school record. Could another one fall this year??” said Mason. “Well done girls. So proud of every one of you for your hard work and dedication.”
Other highlights of the meet include: Avery Smith qualified for state in the 100M hurdles with a new PR of 17.86, and Jacob Johnson ran an unreal PR in the 110M hurdles of 16.84, which qualifies for state, and then ran a 42.79 in the 300M hurdles- and currently sits #2 in 2A. Ciarra Anderson set personal records in the 1600m and 400m, as did Greyson Bennett, Coy Shaw, and Ethan Fielding in the 400m, Sydney Bosh in the 200m, and Tate Goble in the 800m, 300m hurdles, and 110m hurdles.
Paige Mason set a personal best in the shot put, Alli Mason in the javelin, Karla McCoy in the 1600m, and 3200m and Keaton Rosquist in the long jump. Kinseebelle Saling set personal bests in the 100m and 200m, Kamden Saling in the 200m, Avery Smith in the 110m hurdles and Trey Torgerson in the 800m. In addition, Cale Torgerson set a personal best in both the 200m and the 300m hurdles.
“Well done North Sevier, Well done. My heart is full I couldn’t have asked for our kids to do anything more in such a big meet. They rose to the challenge and competed at the highest level,” said Mason. “We host the Region 16 Championships this Wednesday May 11th at 10 AM. There are five teams in our region North Summit, Millard, Duchesne, Gunnison, and North Sevier. It will be a battle as all 5 teams are talented top to bottom. It will be a battle to see who comes out on top. We are firing on all cylinders right now and are excited to see what these kids do next. Go Wolves!!”
