Bryce Lee, a junior at Shelby High School , was a member of the first place 4x100  and 4x400 relay teams in Choteau last weekend.

The Shelby Coyotes placed second at the Choteau Acantha Invitational last Saturday, trailing only Class C Belt. The Coyotes recorded five first place finishes in the meet led by Rhett Reynolds’ wins in the 400 and high jump. The Coyotes also won both relays and freshman Allan Flores won the 3200. 

Reynolds cleared 6’-02 in the high jump to claim top honors while he also ran a season’s best time of 55.0 in the 400 to win the event. Reynolds set a personal record of 11.59 in the 100 to place fourth. The senior also ran a leg on both Coyote relay teams that finished first. Reynolds teamed with Randon Richman, Kolby Lohr and Bryce Lee to top the field in the 4x100 with a time of 46.2. The same quartet finished the 4x400 nearly four seconds ahead of the second place team with a time of 3:46.61.

Flores recorded a time of 12:03.35 to win the 3200 ahead of teammates James Knickerbocker (12:09.48) and Ivan Wickum (12:29.97) who placed second and fourth, respectively. Wickum also had top ten finishes in the 800 with a time of 2:27.89 and the 1600 with a time of 5:26 and the high jump, where he cleared 5’-02, to finish eighth. 

Lohr set a personal record in the 200 with a time of 24.12 to finish second to go along with a fifth place finish in the 400 with a time of 57.47. Richman placed second in the 400, just .01 behind Reynolds’ top time to finish second. Lee finished the 400 in seventh with a time of 57.63. 

Kyle McDermott cleared 9’-0 in the pole vault to finish sixth while he also finished ninth in the triple jump with a personal record of 34’-09.5. 

Matteo Padroni finished seventh in the high jump, clearing 5’-02, and Isaac Doty finished tenth in the 110 hurdles with a time of 20.14 to round out the Coyote top ten finishes.
