Tigers rewrite four Big Dakota Conference records

Share

Nine meet records went by the wayside at the Big Dakota Conference Meet in Chamberlain on Tuesday. Mobridge-Pollock was not overshadowed by anyone as the Tigers and Lady Tigers set four meet records and met five state meet qualification standards in the process. For good measure, the boys’ 1600-meter relay team set a new Tiger track record.
“It was a great day,” said coach Rhonda Frederick. “Everyone did what they needed to do.”

The 1600-meter relay team of Bailley Friesz, Austin Borah, Peyton Friesz and Cody Schaefbauer blazed a trail to the fast time in Tiger history, a new Big Dakota Conference meet record, and what is so far the fastest time in the state.
“I told them they needed 52s,” said Frederick. “They did better than that.”

The team ran a 3:31.64, which eclipses the 3:31.83 run by Bailley Friesz, Borah, Schaefbauer and Anton Bengtsson last spring. As for the conference record, the Tigers took out a 1998 Stanley County squad that ran a 3:32.82.

Bailley Friesz kept right at it with a new conference record in winning the open 400. Friesz ran a 50.47. The old record was 51.0 set by Danny Godel of Winner in 1991. It is also the second fastest 400 run in Class A this season.
The next two records set by Tigers came in what has been the weekly highlight reel: the discus throws by Daniel Roberts and Steph Gemar.

Roberts destroyed the meet record by landing his top throw at 182 feet, nine inches. The old record was 153-11 by Kaile Myrick of Winner from 2003. Roberts finished with another daily double, taking the shot put with a top distance of 50-6.5.
Gemar took out an old Mobridge record for the second time this season. Gemar’s winning throw of 129-3 erased the old record of 124-0 set by Shannon Cerney in 1985. Gemar improved her distance again and went 32-7.5 for third in the shot put.

After just missing in Gettysburg on Saturday, the 400-meter relay team qualified for state with a race-winning time of 45.47 seconds. Qualifying for state in the race were Mason Keller, Conner Stoick, Schaefbauer and Borah.
“I’m really proud of them,” said Frederick. “They stepped up and did it.”

Peyton Friesz shocked Frederick by winning the high jump with a state-qualifying six feet, three inches. Friesz was not originally entered in the event, but Frederick added him and Jason Hill (who finished fifth), just before the event started.
Kass Keller put herself in the mix for the 400-meter at state by winning the race in a state-qualifying 1:01.22. She just missed qualifying in the 200, winning the race in 27.1 seconds. The state standard is just two tenths of a second away at 26.9.

While the teams did not have the depth to get to the tops of the heaps in team points, both the Tigers and Lady Tigers had plenty of success while taking a pair of third-place finishes.

The Tigers put up more points with Borah winning the title of fastest man in the conference, winning the 100-meter dash in 11.36 seconds. Borah also took second in the long jump. Schaefbauer and Lukas Schwieters had fifth-place finishes, Schaefbauer in the 400 and Schwieters in the 800. Tiger relay teams added another win with Keller, Schwieters, Hill and Cody Hanson winning the BDC 3200-meter relay title. The 800 and medley teams finished in third place.

The Lady Tiger 1600-meter and 3200-meter relay teams are the conference champs. Keller, Maranda Wagner, Cassi Heumiller and Callie Slater teamed to run a 4:27.89 to beat Miller in the 1600. Heumiller and Slater ran with Daysia and Ashton Wiederholt to run an 11:02.08 and beat Winner in the 3200.

“The girls are getting closer,” said Frederick. “They keep getting better and their times keep getting lower.”
Heumiller added a second-place finish in the 800, where she was just two seconds off the state-qualifying standard. Daysia Wiederholt ran to second in the 3200. More points came from Brandi Martian taking fourth in the high jump and Rebecca Martin taking fifth in the 400.

The Tigers and Lady Tigers were not the only ones who were putting their names in the record books.

The Cheyenne-Eagle Butte team of Destiny Beautiful Bald Eagle, Calby Pearman, Theola Schad and Jimmi Lawrence set the new medley relay record. The girls ran a 4:34.84, taking out the 4:37.07 run by Winner in 1989.

Dysan Lends His Horse took four seconds off the 1600-meter record. Lends His Horse won the race in a state-qualifying 4:30.27. The old record of 4:34.06 was run by T. Jay Sanderson of Chamberlain in 2001. Lends His Horse added to his big day by winning the 800 in a state-qualifying 2:00.27.

Hudson Priebe of Chamberlain won the long jump with a state-qualifying leap of 20-11. His jump took out the 20-10 record set by fellow Cub Cash Fees in 1995.

Dayna Diez of Winner won the 300-meter hurdles in a state-qualifying 47.95 to set a new BDC standard. Diez surpassed the old record of 49.01 run by Kellli Norrid of Winner in 2009.
