The Camas County High School Mushers have already showed they are ready and willing to contend for the State 1A track and field championship in May. The Musher girls and boys won last Thursday's 14-school Carey Invitational.
Led by the 40-point performance of senior Katelyn Peterson, the Musher girls used good balance and a 50-point field event effort to out-distance the second-place Carey Panther girls by a 111-89 margin. Peterson won high, long and triple jumps, and added the 300-meter intermediate hurdles win.
Camas junior Stephanie Moore captured the 200-meter dash for the fifth gold of the day for the Musher girls. The Carey girls got a 3200m victory by junior Jaide Parke in addition to three relay wins—4x100m, 4x200m and sprint medley. Parke (26 points) and senior Micaela Adamson (21) led the Panthers into second place.
In a very competitive boys' field, the Musher boys earned six gold medals and piled up 56.5 points in field events to edge second-place Lighthouse Christian Academy of Twin Falls by a 91-84 count. Carey's boys led by long and triple jump winner Charlie Rivera finished fourth with 70.5 points.
Thursday's Musher winners were junior Jordan Robles (shotput, discus), senior Airik Donohoe (3200m), senior Andrew Simon (high jump) and two relays—the sprint medley by 1.80 seconds and the 4x400m relay by 12 seconds.
Other individual stars were: Richfield senior Sasha Kent winning the 800m by 20 seconds, 1600m by 18 seconds and 400m by 1.5 seconds; Castleford junior Ty Zimmers taking the 100m and 200m sprints; and Murtaugh senior Humberto Pacheco capturing the high hurdles and intermediates.
