Sprinter Keys pops a top time in the 100m

Winner at Skyview Invitational

     Students and staff at Hailey’s Wood River High School have known for a while that senior Ian Keys has fast feet and rocket starts in track and field sprints and relays.

     Now the rest of Idaho is sitting up and taking notice of a sprinter who owned the WRHS 100-meter dash school record before the 2013 track season.

     Keys recorded the best 100m dash time in all Idaho high school classifications this spring by winning Friday’s Skyview Invitational 100m event in 10.59 seconds, converted to 10.84. Keys added a second place in 200m in 22.28, converted to 22.54, which is the fourth-fastest time in 4A ranks.

     Another Hailey senior, Chase England, took first place in Friday’s 16-school boys’ field of schools at Skyview with a winning 10:13.50 time in the 3200m distance two-mile run on a sunny and warm afternoon.

     Other second places for Wood River Friday went to junior Haley Montgomery in the 3200m (12:16.27) and freshman Sara Lichtenberg in the high jump (4-10).

     Wood River tuned up for its Bob Shay Invitational today, Wednesday at 4 p.m. at Hailey’s Phil Homer Field.

     At Skyview the Wolverines placed eighth in boys’ team standings with 38 points (18 sprints, 15 distances, 5 field) and ninth in the girls' team race at 36.25 (19 distances, 1.5 hurdles, 8 relays, 7.75 field).
