Cut Bank senior Kamdyn Molenda out sprints the field in the 100 meter dash April 6, at the Choteau Acantha Invitational. Molenda has won the event in the last four meets, including Saturday at the Havre Lions Invitational where she recorded a personal record time of 12.9.

The Cut Bank track and field teams competed at the Havre Lions Invitational last weekend and both Kamdyn Molenda and Dakota Manecke continued their dominance in the 100 and pole vault. 

Molenda won her fourth meet in a row in the 100 and set a new personal record, dipping under 13 seconds for the first time, at 12.9. The senior also ran a leg on the Lady Wolves’ 4x100 relay that placed fifth along with Portia Taylor, Manecke and Jackie Waller, as well as the sixth place 4x400 relay with Katrina Ostler, Waller and London Raemaeker. 

Manecke cleared 9-06 to top the field in the pole vault. Manecke also had some good attempts at 10 feet, a height that would have broken her own school record but came up short. She also placed in the high jump, clearing 4-04 to place fourth. 

Raemaeker topped the JV field with personal records in the 1600 (6:36.78) and the 3200 (13:53.9). 

Kierrin Rooney picked up a first place finish for the JV boys with a personal best 5:1.64 in the 1600 while Nathanial Anderson set a personal record in the 800 with a  time of 2:26.04 to place second. Anderson also placed third in the 400 with another personal best of 1:03.02. Dalton Estey earned a second place finish with a personal best 13:59 in the JV 3200 as the Wolves’ distance crew had a strong showing in Havre. 

Hayden Hedges set a personal record in the 100 with a time of 11.94 to place fourth. He also placed fourth in the 200 with a time of 25.02. Henry Gannon placed fourth in the 300 hurdles with a personal best time of 46.62 while Andrew Andersen placed sixth in the 110 hurdles with a personal best time of 18.16. Jordyn Fields placed fourth in the pole vault, clearing 9-06 and also set personal records in both the shot put and discus, but did not place. Wesley Omsberg also set a pair of personal records in the javelin and discus. 

The Wolves’ 4x100 relay team of Andersen, Hedges, Stephon McGillis and Bauer Seewald placed third with a time of 48.03 and the 4x400 relay of Gannon, Rooney, Austin Vanek and Fields placed fifth with a time of 4:05.66. 

The local tracksters will host a Pre-Easter Meet on Thursday before taking the holiday weekend off.
