On Tuesday, May 10, the Cowboys hosted the Region 19 Track and Field Championships, here in Kanab. Teams from Beaver, Enterprise, Parowan, South Sevier, and San Juan traveled to Kanab to compete for the top spots, but it was both Cowboy teams that walked away with the trophies.
The girls’ team, who have not won a region championship since 2002, just edged out Parowan with a score of 156.5 to 149. The Lady Cowboys had 17 different ladies score points for the team and 20 personal records set on the day. Individual region champions for the girls include Madi Orton: high jump, long jump; Jaci Huntington: 200-meters and Savannah Bateman: 800-meters.
The girls’ shot put and long jump were huge factors in the team’s win, with six girls placing in the top eight for the shot put, and five in the long jump. Shot put coach, Tanner Brown and long jump coach, Travis Capson had their girls prepared for the challenge and they rose to the occasion. The Lady Cowboys truly showed their colors as a team of depth and grit to pull off the championship win.
The boys’ team was a staggering 83 points ahead of the second-place team, Beaver, and ended up scoring a total of 196 points to clinch their second consecutive region championship. The Cowboys had 21 different boys score points for the team and 29 personal records set on the day. Individual Region Champions for the boys include Travis Stewart: 100-meters, 200-meters, 400-meters; Saxton Unsworth: 110-meter hurdles; Collin Szymanski: discus; Noah McCorvey: long jump and Tyson Brinkerhoff: 3200-meter.
Junior Travis Stewart scored 38 points for the Cowboys, while the hurdle squad combined for 56 points in the two events. The Cowboy team had athletes score in every single event to prove that they are not just a team of flash, but one of depth as well.
Both teams will travel up to Provo, on May 20, for the two-day state showdown, to cap off their truly phenomenal seasons. Coaches Levi LeFevre, Samantha LeFevre, Tanner Brown, Julia Christensen, Travis Capson and Brooke Glazier would like to congratulate their athletes on their amazing region season and can’t wait to see what they do at State. Good luck Cowboys and Lady Cowboys!
