Harris tops shot put to win state title

CASPER – Torrington High School junior Corbin Harris won the team’s lone individual state championship over the weekend at the Class 3A State Track and Field Championships in Casper.

His toss of 48 feet, 3.5 inches was more than a foot better than Lovell’s Quinn Lindsay. Harris was one of three Blazers to compete in the event. Junior Brandon Deen was 16th with a throw of 38-3, while senior Scotty Woodruff fouled on his three preliminary throws.

Harris also placed fifth in the discus with a throw 141-4, while Woodruff finished seventh in 128-10.

Meanwhile, senior Bryan Lemmon was second in his pair of events.

Lemmon matched Buffalo’s Tyce Dahlberg height for height in high jump at 6-4, but the win was credited to Dahlberg.

Lemmon also came up inches short in the 110-meter high hurdle finals on a cold, wet Saturday.

Mountain View’s Briggin Bluemel edged Lemmon at the line by .07 seconds. Bluemel won the event in 15.32 seconds, while Lemmon crossed the line in 15.39 seconds.

The 4x800-meter relay team and sophomore Nick Sherbeyn also medaled for the Blazers.

Sherbeyn placed sixth in the 400-meter dash in 52.63 seconds, while the relay team of Sherbeyn, Pake Haun, Kevin Parish and Jacob Polkowske placed seventh in 9 minutes, 9.67 seconds.

The Blazers ended the weekend seventh with 41 points. Mountain View won the team title with 129 points, while Buffalo was second with 102. Powell was third with 98 points.

In the girls’ division, the Lady Blazers’ 1,600-meter sprint medley relay team of Onalise Albaugh, Hailey Boslau, Sera Glass and Tyne Stokes placed second in 4:27.46.

The 4x100 relay team of Autumn Harris, Katie Wiford, Helena McGaugh and Allison Brummell finished sixth in 54.20 seconds.

Albaugh also finished sixth in the 200-meter dash finals in 28.34 seconds, while Glass placed sixth in the 800-meter run in 2:27.08.

In the field events, a pair of Lady Blazers placed in pole vault. Senior Nakalyn Garner led the way at a height of 9-6, while Albaugh placed seventh at 9 feet. Freshman Mattie Jones also cleared 9 feet but finished ninth overall.

In discus, junior Chloe Krick finished seventh at 104-3, while freshman Sierra Allen was 14th at 86-1.

In long jump, Brummell was seventh with a leap of 15-10. She also finished ninth in high jump at 4-6.
