Roberts Sends Discus to Record Landing

Share

by Jay Davis

Records are made to be broken. It seems, too, that they are made to be shattered. Eight meet records were set. Four records were set by Mobridge-Pollock and three of those were new Tiger track records at the Mobridge-Pollock Early Bird Meet at Tiger Stadium on Thursday.

“It went pretty well for an opener,” said coach Rhonda Frederick.

All three new Tiger track records were set in impressive fashion, but none bigger than the new discus record set by Daniel Roberts. All Roberts did was heave the second longest discus throw in South Dakota history. Roberts sent the discus 192 feet, 5.5 inches. The only longer throw ever was 211-4 by George Amundson in 1969. The record also put Roberts atop the Tiger list by beating Billy Hardcastle’s 187-1.5 in 2006. Roberts also won the shot put with a state-qualifying 54-3.75.
The boys’ 800-meter relay team of Peyton Friesz, Bailley Friesz, Cody Schaefbauer and Austin Borah blew away the old Early Bird record. The Tiger foursome ran their two laps in 1 minute, 31.59 seconds. The old record was set by Mobridge-Pollock in 2010 with a 1:36.9. The Tigers also erased a 51-year-old time from the Tiger record books. The team of Clarence Skillingstad, Gary Vance, Bill Moser and Merle Werner held the old record of 1:32.5, run in 1961.

Steph Gemar made it a double-discus record day and put her name in the Early Bird and Tiger record books with a new mark of 130-5. Gemar went way past the Early Bird record of 111-0 set by fellow Lady Tiger Amanda Nink in 2004. She erased Shannon Cerney, who threw 127-11.5 in 1986, from the Tiger record book.

Austin Borah did not break a Tiger record, but he set the new Early Bird standard in winning the 200-meter with a time of 23.43 seconds. Tiger Todd Wientjes held the old mark. Wientjes ran a 23.82 in 2004. Borah had a two-win day. He won the 100-meter at 11.81 seconds.

“The kids have a whole different attitude this year,” said Frederick. “Their expectations have changed. They’ve all been to the state meet, now they want to go there and get their names on the board.”

A pair of Herreid-Selby Area jumpers hit record marks in the high jump. Haylee Biel raised the standard five inches with a record-breaking 5-1. The old record of 4-8 was set by Theresa Crance of Timber Lake in 2003 and tied by Brittany Watt of Cheyenne-Eagle Butte in 2004. Dakota Thorstenson tied the boys’ high jump record by clearing the bar at 6-4. Thorstenson shares the title with Luke Enos of Faith, who set the mark in 2006.

Cody Kraft of Timber Lake won the 110-meter hurdles with a record time of 16.67 seconds. Kraft put away the old record of 17.18 set by Rusty Haynes of McIntosh in 2004.

Kelsie Silvernagel added to her long jump record by hitting 16-3.75. Silvernagel set the record at 15-4.75 last spring. Silvernagel also holds the 100- and 200-meter records.

The Tigers and Lady Tigers did not need to break records to cross the finish line in first. The Tigers had Bailley Friesz win the 400 at 52.5 and relay teams won the 1600 and medley. For the Lady Tigers, Kass Keller won the 400 at 1:07.35 and Cassi Heumiller won the 1600 at 5:58.85. The Lady Tigers teamed to win the 1600, 3200 and medley relays.
