Sheridan Rolls to a Second Straight Boys’ Indoor Track Crown
The Sheridan Broncs won six events and repeated as the boys’ indoor track state champions on Saturday in Gillette. This is the third state title in school history.
Senior Brock Bomar led the way with victories in the 55-meter dash (6.58), the 200-meters (22.88), and the 400-meters (50.95). He also ran the anchor leg on Sheridan’s victorious 4x400 meter relay (3:32.27).
The two other wins were in field events, as Ryan Karajanis captured the pole vault crown clearing 14-6. Gage Vielhauer won the shot by over three feet. His best toss was 54-2.50.
Sheridan head coach Taylor Kelting said depth was their key to another title.
“We had a lot of good individuals in each event, good relays, and when you have two or three good kids in each event, you know you’re going to be pretty successful at the state meet.”
The Broncs dominated with 117 team points. Star Valley was a distant second place with 67 points. Kelly Walsh came in third with 65, and Cheyenne Central picked up the fourth-place trophy with 63 points.
Kelting added, “The way they compete (is what stood out to me). They’ve done it all season, from day one. Their bond is so strong and they love each other and just compete for each other, and you could tell all the way through this week.”
