Spring sports start in Chatfield


Fri, Apr 18th, 2014
Posted in All Sports

It doesn’t happen too often that a school hosts three varsity sporting activities all in the same day. To kick off the spring season, Chatfield did the honors. The baseball and softball teams hosted GMLOK in a trio of lopsided affairs. Gopher track and field hosted the Chatfield invitational with R-P/H, L/FC/M-C, and Kingsland competing alongside GM/L-O/S, Dover-Eyota, and Lewiston-Altura. The three big county track squads (Kingsland is short on numbers) all had their standout performers.

The Gopher boys (101) won their portion of the meet, besting R-P-H (78). Chatfield hitched their team wagon to the backs of Jayme LaPlante, Alex Haffner, and a couple relays. LaPlante broke his own Chatfield discus record with a throw of 171’9”. It was not quite 28-feet better than R-P-H’s second place Matt Culhane (133’10”). It was four feet better than Jayme’s second place state throw last year (167’9”), the former record, and better than last year’s state title throw (169’). Jayme also set a meet record (49’7”) in the shot put whilst placing third at the 100-meters. Haffner, meanwhile, dueled with D-E’s Billy Lovett in the two hurdle events. Haffner won the 110-meter version and took second in the 300-meters. The Gopher 4x200 (Austin Swancutt, Kevin Bradt, Alex Bradt, Parker Fossum) and 4x400 teams (Chase Salerno, K. Bradt, Fossum, Jarrett Oakley) also placed first besting GM/L-O/S. Swancutt (200), K. Bradt (400), Fossum (High Jump), and Keagan Clarke (3,200), as well as the 4x800 team (Justin Friedrich, Clarke, Nolan Salerno, Anthony Voigt), added second place finishes. R-P-H had first six place finishers, Jeremiah Munson (3200), the 4x100 (Carter Chiglo, Noah Carlson, Harry Chiglo, Tyler McLellan), the 4x800 (Ryan Ruberg, Munson, Logan Quimby, Dylan Linder), Zach Thelen (Pole Vault), McLellan (Long Jump), and Carlson (Triple Jump). L/FC/M-C took fourth with Zach Voeltz (1,600 and 3,200), Gabe Decker (100), and Niko Anderson (200) winning events. Kingsland finished seventh (of 7). Hunter Meisner (3rd 1600 and 3200) and Josh Bradley (4th 100, 5th 200 and 400) were the two best of a single digit Knight contingent.

On the girl’s side, GM/L-O/S and D-E went 1-2 over 3-4-5 L/FC/M-C, R-P/H, and Chatfield. Gopher defending 400-meter state champ Maddy Kammer notched three firsts, individually in the 200 and 400, collectively (Autum Erickson, Ashley Baker, and Maddie Talamantes) in the 4x200. She added a third place at .....
