They go to state championships this Friday and Saturday.

The Page High School Track and Field boys’ team brought home the 3A North Regional championships last Wednesday. They placed first as a team with 160 points.

The 100-meter event: 3rd place, Robert Smith, :11.87; sixth place Kele Meredith, :11.97; tenth place Dillon Anderson, :12.45; and twelfth place Gabriel Gomez, :12.48.

The 200-meter event: third place Robert Smith, :24.61; seventh place Brandon James, :25:36; eighth place Dillon Anderson, :25.72; and tie for eleventh at :25.98 on the watch was Gabriel Gomez and Even Cambridge.

The 400-meter event: first place Cullen Nockideneh, :53.77; second place Trent Holiday, :54.25; and eighth place Robert Smith, :58.12.

The 800 meter: first Dorian Daw, 2:01.15; third place Bowen Martin, 2:02.34; fourth place Cullen Nockideneh, 2:04.37; and 19th place Kaipo Uejo, 2:34.35.

The 1600 meter: first place Bowen Martin, 4:32.58; second place Dorian Daw, 4:33.06; and tenth place Kaipo Uejo, 5:02.42.

In the 110 meter hurdle event: first place Jacob Doyle, :16.95; eighth place Gavin Nockideneh, :22.27; and ninth place Ikaika Uejo, :22.37.

The 300 meter hurdle event: eighth place Kaipo Uejo, :52.40 and tenth place Gavin Nockideneh, :54.80.

In the 4x400 meter relay event the Page relay team placed first with 3:39:37. They also placed first in the 4x800 meter relay with 8:23:40 on the clock.

In the long jump event: eighth place Brandon James, 17’6.5’’; ninth place Robert Smith, 16’8’’; 14th Even Cambridge, 15’1.5’’, and 19th place Kaipo Uejo 13’9.5’’.

In the high jump category Jacob Doyle placed second jumping a height of 6’ and Even Cambridge placed sixth jumping a height of 5’2’’.

The shot put throw: first place Kele Meredith, 43’2’’a personal best; sixth place Weston Lane, 38’8’’; and Jeremy Tallsalt, 33’2’’.

In the discus throw event: first place Kele Meredith, 126’3’’, another personal best; fourth place goes to Jacob McCabe, 117’7’’, and twelfth place Weston Lane, 99’7’’.

Heading into the State championship meet, Jacob Doyle had to pull out of the 300 meter hurdles event due to an aggravated hamstring injury, which is going to make the overall state win a bit more difficult. “We’ll give it a good run at state and we’ll do well, but the fact is we didn’t enter Doyle in one of his events [because] he is not healthy.  We were counting on a lot of points from him. He qualified for all four events but we kept him from it to keep him healthy. So, we’ll still go down and give it our best. Most of the kids are [definitely] going to place.” said Head Coach Reggie Edwards.

Assistant Coach Mack Lane adds their main concern is for the team’s safety. “We’re just right trying to keep the kids healthy.” Both coaches note the after practice ice down and using the personal trainer are part of their routine to prevent injury, which is more important. “Hopefully they will perform their best. Kids have fun when they’re winning… but right now we are just going to keep them healthy.”

Coach Edwards adds the team has been surprising him by challenging themselves on the field when it counts, such as, Meredith’s place in the shot put and discus throw. “We try to get them to motivate themselves. That’s the best motivation, the motivation that comes from within. Plus, kids naturally want to win, so, hopefully, we put that on them and let them motivate each other. This year the Monument Valley is the nemesis. Last year it was Ganado.” he says, hoping it will light a fire under the team to do their best.

            The boys’ track and field team will travel to the Division III State Championship Tournament in Mesa at the Mesa Community College this Friday and Saturday where they will once again challenge themselves and other top teams from Div. III to vie for the state title.
