The Carbon High Track and Field team battled tough weather conditions and strong competition in their quest to hurdle past other teams at the Carbon High Farm Bureau Invite on Saturday at the high school.

While the weather, which went from being cloudy to sunny to cloudy with rain and a little bit of snow, played on the minds of the athletes all day long, Carbon High athletes fought through everything on their way to a top finish at the meet.

The boys team placed third with 93 points and the girls team placed in fourth with 78 points.

Overall, CHS placed in second with 171 points behind first place Stansbury High School with 239.5 points.

Head coach Jimmy Jewkes said the team performed really well despite the weather and other factors. Those other factors included students taking the ACT test and Prom taking place later that night.

"We did really well," Jewkes said.

Eighteen teams participated at the meet, which has been considered by some to be one of the best in the state, Jewkes said.

Senior Regan Powell took first in the 400 meter, 800 meter and the 1600 meter. Junior Diana Olsen capped off a good meet with a second place finish in the 800 meter and a third place finish in the 1600 meter.

Sophomore Garrett Marsing took second in the 800 and 1600 meter races.

The boys 4X100 team took first place with a time of 44.75 seconds.

Senior Amanda Freestone took fifth in the 100 meter hurdles and finished second in the 300 meter hurdles, which is notable, Jewkes said, as she had only run the 300 meter hurdles for the second time at a meet.

With the track season getting into full swing, some members of the team fought through injury to finish the meet, Jewkes said.

Despite the injuries, the meet was successful and should help give a boost to the team heading further into region meets.

"We performed exceptionally well," Jewkes said. "We're getting better as a team and we're on the upswing right now. We just need to keep the momentum going into the rest of the season into our region and later at state."
