Golf – The Trojans played at the Halstead Invitational Tournament on Tuesday, May 2 where they came in third out of seven teams.

This was a pretty solid week for our golf team. On Tuesday at Halstead, Annaliese Jorgenson shot a career-low round (91) to finish in 5th place. Lincoln Wichert and Byrant Dalke also placed in the top 10 individually. All three of them continue to play pretty consistently and are getting very close to breaking the mark of shooting rounds in the 80s. Our team score of 377 at Halstead also set a new season low for the team,” said Coach Scott O’Hare.

The Trojans next played on Friday, May 5 at the Marion Co. Invitational where teams played 18 holes at Marion in the morning and 18 holes in Hillsboro in the afternoon.

“The 36-hole Marion Co. Invitational that we co-hosted on Friday is always a physically and mentally demanding tournament for all of the golfers. Although our scores were not bad, we did struggle a bit over at Marion during the morning round,” said O’Hare.

Lincoln Wichert just missed out on a Top 10 finish, coming in 12th.

“As expected, overall we had a much better afternoon at Hillsboro on our home course,” said O’Hare.

Wichert improved his career-low round, shooting an 88, marking his first round under 90. That was good enough for a 9th-place finish.

Josh Siebert, Owen Dalke and Monroe James also all shot career-low 18-hole rounds. Wichert’s performance on the day earned him a 10th-place individual finish for the 36-hole combined total.

“Overall, I feel this group is trending in the right direction with five of the six varsity players posting career-low scores this week. We are scheduled to round out the regular season by playing in the CKL Golf Tournament (hosted by Hoisington HS) at Lake Barton Golf Club on Tuesday,” said O’Hare.

Coming—2A Regional Tournament at Salina Municipal Golf Course on Monday, May 15.


Boy track – The Warriors competed at the Remington Relays on Friday, May 5.

“When we start to talk about this meet, we have to start with the last event of the night. Our 4 x 400M Relay team closed a good meet for us in a great way,” said Coach Grant Thierolf.

The relay took first with a time of 3:35.66.

Chance Shults capped an outstanding day for him personally by running a blistering opening. Jesse Snyder is learning how to run the 400M and kept the relay really close during the second leg. Tristen Dye came back after a career-best 800M and smoked the third leg for them. Luke Wessel finished it off with a fantastic finishing leg, holding off Garden Plain down the stretch and finishing a really good day for the Warrior men.

“We scored in every area of the meet and had our best day of the season Quade, Brian and Jackson all made the finals in their best throwing event and fought to improve,” said Thierolf.

Shults set a PR in the vault and 110M hurdles and had his best day of the year.

Snyder and Jonathan Frese each ran their best 100M and 200M races of the year.

Thierolf said, “Fun to see both make the finals in the 100M again. Our distance crew held their own against some of the best runners we have seen this year.”

Dye continues to shave time off his 800M time and Wessel, Beery and Klenda all scored key points for the team in their events.

“It was fun to see us compete and to see a hard week of practice make us better. A good way for us to get better for the two upcoming meets, league and regionals,” said Thierolf.

Girls track – The Warriors competed at the Remington Relays on Friday, May 5.

“We were very pleased with our young women with the way they rebounded from a tough meet the week before, worked very hard in practice and then performed very well at the Remington Relays.,” said Coach Grant Thierolf. “We had a number of season bests, personal records and gutty performances.

Mckinnon Waner led the throwers again, setting a PR in the discus and then making the finals in the shot and javelin.

Sophia Dye had a good series of throws in the javelin and discus.

Madisyn Hulett brought home some points in the shot.

Kenna Wesner led the jumpers, winning the triple jump and setting the pace for Kayla McPhail and Shyann Harris in that event.

Gabby Newell and Taryn Kraus continue to improve in the hurdles and are lowering their times each week.

McPhail made the finals in the 100M dash again and that is a great achievement for a young freshman. “Our two relay teams are starting to come together and just at the right time. Addison Cooper ran really well in both of those relays and we had great anchor legs in each; Kayla in the 4 x 100M and Taryn in the 4 x 400M. Good to get those times down as we get ready for league this week,” said Thierolf.
