Prep athlete of the week: Senior pole vaulter is flying high

With Unland's two awards and a Women's Outdoor Field Athlete of the Week award for Ja'la Henderson, Wyoming has collected a weekly conference accolade during three of the outdoor season's first four weeks.

She added that Leroy Chapman and Jahnaza Francis two of the top 400m athletes because of illness had to be removed from the U20 4x400m relay and use 100m sprinters.

She doesn't want to stop there, either.

"It gets kind of tough to study when it gets late after practice", said Charlie Eriksmoen, Mohall-Lansford-Sherwood, Glenburn, Kenmare, Bowbells baseball player. Smith would like to check that one off the list, too.

She's more anxious now about the baseball teams as the field still has at least two feet of snow.

By May, Smith will have to make a decision for the state meet in Mesa.

Brunson said she enjoyed softball and the concept of a team, but cross-country and track serve her in a different way. The fourth-fastest D-III time in the 400m, a 1:00.39, also now belongs to Smith. "My favorite thing about this team is that they never think they are out of a ballgame". "I'm concerned that we make sure we do this fairly".

"I switched from softball to cross-country and track", Brunson said. "Beating your old time is such a good feeling". "We are excited to start competing". Then it's on to sprints and hurdles.

Not only is Coach V a good coach and teacher, she is a hard worker and has been very hands-on during her tenure as athletic director. During that time, I developed great respect for Coach V because I could see she really cared about her players.

In fact, coaching her sometimes means telling Smith to take the foot off the pedal. "I know she had a little hiccup mid-match and got a little frustrated, but, again, I just talked to her about how this is a game of errors". "We only have a total of 20 kids competing this season, which is down about 10 kids from last season". The fastest times in all the other track events on the girls side, however, belong to Smith.

While Madison-Grant boys' and girls' track teams lack the numbers to win many meets, the Argylls have several athletes primed for individual success.

Roatta Johnson head coach of the team was positive that if it wasn't for the injuries more meals could have been achieved.

This year, two major projects are on the go, Barbondy said, including the replacement of two backstops at the fields in June, along with a league fundraising campaign involving business sponsorship signs for dugouts and fields.

Budke said his coaching philosophy has evolved over the years, but what remains the same is his dedication to teaching the value of hard work and perseverance to his athletes.

On Coconino's girls side, Kaelynn Ashley and Hope Saxton have ran provisional times in the 1600m, with Saxton also having a provisional time in the 3200m along with Lilia Tassinari. Besler's time was good enough to land him second overall and made him the top finisher among DIII runners.

Henry also agreed that the team could have won more medals but was proud of their enthusiasm.

Madison-Grant's boys are in better shape with the return of regional qualifiers Alex Webb (high jump) and A.J. Jones (shot put), both are juniors that second-year coach Kyle Booher expects to lead the Argylls for the next two years.

"We're right where we want to be, and it something that we don't want to be a one-year thing", admitted Bushnell.
