If II hi by Bob Greer South Central High School's track and field boys turned in another good performance Tues- day, April 18, competing against a huge field with 14 other high school squads. The Timberwoives took part in the annual Tom Gilmore Re- lays at Ashland. South Central scored 10 places in the various events and finished with 56 team points. That gave SCHS fifth place in the final boys standings. South Gray High School from Montezuma ran away with the boys division championship, pil- ing up 81% points for the title. SpearviUe High was a close sec- ond with 75 points. Meade edged meet-host Ashland by a single point (67-66) in a hectic battle for third and fourth places. Other team standings in the boys division: 5. South Central High with 56 team points. 6. Bucklin 46. 7. Haviland 36.8. Freedom (Okla.) High School with 27 team points. 9. South Barber High School of Kiowa, 23%. 10. Greensburg 21, 11. Fowler 18. 12. Cimarron 15. 13. Buffalo (Okla.) High School with 13 team points. 14. Ingalls 9. 15. Minneola with 3 team points. South Central nabbed a trio of first places, one second, and two third places. The T-Wolves also took a pair of fifth-place fin- ishes and a pair of sixths. Senior Bryce Reimer again won all three sprint events. He clocked 11.16 seconds in the 100-meter dash, took the 200 meters in 22.96, and flashed home first in the 400-meter dash with his time of 50.61 seconds. Josh Zielke also placed in the 400 dash, timed in 55.72 sec- onds. The 400 dash was one of two events in which the SCHS boys placed two entrants Tuesday. The other was the 1600-meter run in which freshman Kaler Hazen took third in 5:09.68, and Anthony Pollino was sixth in 5:13.73. Kaler Hazen also won fifth place in the 3200-meter run in I 1 minutes, 35.67 seconds. Jered Flinkman, a senior, was the only other SCHS boy to place in an individual event. He finished sixth in the javelin throw with a toss of 143'4". Senior Alex Brooks had a rugged day. He clocked 24.68 in the preliminaries of the 200- meter dash. But he cramped up and could not run in the finals. Brooks had similar tough luck as a member of the 400- meter relay. He cramped there and his relay unit could not be finished. South Central picked up a second and a third in the other two scoring relays. In the 3200- meter relay, the T-Wolves took second place in 9 minutes, 5.16 seconds. Those runners (in or- der) were Josh Zielke, Alex Brooks, Jered Flinkman, and anchorman Levi Miller. Zielke started offthat foursome with a standout clocking of2:14.93 for his 800-meter leg of the race. In the 1600-meter relay, SCHS placed third in 3:43.13. Those runners (in order) were Josh Zielke, Jered Flinkman, Bryce Reimer, and Levi Miller. Reimer's time of 50.96 seconds for his third leg of the relay gave that unit a big boost. SCHS also placed second in the 400-meter relay for other ath- letes who competed in throwing events. But that event did not count in team scoring. The over- all Timberwolf time was 52.81 seconds. Runners (in order) were Jesse Baker, Matthias Krull, Nell Baker, and Chance Gates. An- chorman Gates had the fastest time of 11.85 seconds for his 100-meter stint. These other SCHS athletes competed in a variety of events. They did not place or score points. But these were their events and their marks: 100-- Daniel Bradley 12.79 seconds. 200 -- Levi Miller 27.32. 800 -- Anthony Pollino 2:18.34. Daniel Bradley 2:24.17. Jesse Baker 2:26.39. lO0-Meter High Hurdles -- Dayne Taylor 19.73 seconds. Anthony Pollino 19.95. 300- Meter Intermediate Hurdles- Dayne Taylor 50.32 seconds. Shot Put -- Nell Baker 40'10%".
