     Senior distance runner Janel Passey won the 1600-meter run and freshman Michelle Mason earned the 200m dash victory with a personal-best 27.5-second time for the Wood River High School track and field team Thursday.

     Wood River sophomore Sara Lichtenberg captured the high jump (4-10) at Thursday’s Tim Dunne-Jerome Invitational and helped the second-place 4x400m relay with Pilar Pennell, Mason and anchor Passey (4:27.3, relay team record).

     Second places for Hailey at the five-school meet with Jerome, Twin Falls, Minico and Burley were:

     Pennell high jump (4-8), Mason 100m (13.1), Taylor Douthit discus (141-1, PR), Passey 400m (1:04), and 4x100m relay with Aly Cavallo, Emilia Bingham, Bailey Rierden, Brooke Sundholm (59.0).

     · Baseball update—With senior Finn Isaacson sidelined with a head injury for a few days and freshman Nic Tidwell also injured, the Wood River High School baseball team took a few steps backward last weekend with 15-3, 14-4 and 10-0 Great Basin Conference losses to Jerome.

     Wood River (8-10, 3-9 league) committed 13 errors in the three losses and struggled with pitching. Highlights included a two-run double by Cade Schott, a three-run triple by Adrian Rojas, three hits by Reide Whitehead and an outstanding outfield catch by Will Long made in left field.

     The Wolverines wrap up their GBC league schedule hosting Burley for a Founders Field home doubleheader Thursday, April 24 and visiting Burley for a single game Friday. Wood River will be aiming to host a first-round tournament game as the No. 4 seed Tuesday, April 29.
