Kingsley-Pierson/Woodbury Central's Colton Phelps won the boys shot put at the Sioux City Relays.
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Day one of the 50th edition of the Sioux City Relays centered mostly around the college athletes.
But on day two Saturday, the high school athletes took center stage, looking to prove their worth amidst a crowded field of tough competition.
Bishop Heelan had a nice day on the track. Junior Alec Pavone won the 1600 meter run with a time of 4:33.67, just ahead of Okoboji's Jordan Hanna.
The Crusader girls also won the "Class A" distance medley. The team of Lauren Bleeker, Brooke Bleeker, Anna Albenesius and Lindsay Joyce took it with a time of 4:35.36.
In the girls 1500 meter run, Dakota Valley freshman Marisa Schulz led much of the race and then took over down the stretch, winning with a time of 4:59.18.
In the 400 meter hurdles, South Sioux City's Alex Borchers won with a time was 54.44.
On the girls' side, the last few hurdles of the race were set higher than the girls regulation height, but North's Shauna Folchert still gets the win in 1:11.45
"I got out really hard, gave it all I got," said Folchert. "At the end, next thing I know, the hurdles are higher, I'm having to jump higher, I hit one. That's when I was realizing there's something wrong."
The afternoon field events were dominated by Kingsley-Pierson/Woodbury Central.
Kiana Phelps wins the girls discus with a throw of 148 feet, nine inches, and Colton Phelps wins the boys shot put with a throw of 50 feet, 10 inches.
Colton is ranked second in class 2A and just getting started.
"I came in here ranked first, and I've been here for four years, so I figured it was about time I got it done," said Phelps. "I'm happy. Great weather today to throw, and I won by several feet, so that's what I came to do."
The Relays concluded on Saturday. You can find full results at screlays.com.
