A snowy Saturday morning bus drive to Grand Junction didn't give the Moffat County track coaches much optimism for the coming day.

"The weather looked pretty rough," MCHS girls head coach Todd Trapp said. "We were thinking that the meet was canceled, but they just didn't call us to let us know."

The snow disappeared in Grand Junction for the Frank Woodburn Invite, but the weather was still cold - in the high 30s.

"We didn't think there was a chance for many improvements," Trapp said. "But, afterward, the coaches were excited for the personal bests and improvements."

Three seniors on the girls team earned first-place finishes on the way to leading the team to a top finish out of 15 teams. The Bulldogs scored 97 points to win the meet.

Myiah Bengston had the best shot put performance of the meet. Her throw of 32 feet, 7 inches was almost two feet better than her previous best this season.

The Bulldogs had four other top finishes.

All the wins came from seniors Alicia Nelson and Erin Urbanoski.

Nelson picked up a double with a win in the 1,600 and 800 meter races. Nelson ran a season best in the 1,600 in 5 minutes, 09.43 seconds, which is the second-best time run in Colorado's Class 4A this season.

Her 800 time was 2:20.85 and was her second-best time of the season.

Urbanoski jumped 17 feet, 10.5 inches in the long jump, which was almost two feet longer than the closest competition.

The jump, which was her second best of the season, but longest at a state-qualifying meet, moved her into first in the state's standings. She also won the 100 with a time of 13.11 seconds.

Sophomore Maddy Jourgensen finished second in the 1,600 (5:30.09) and third in the 800 (2:30.45). Sophomore Lauren Roberts jumped a personal best 4 feet, 8 inches in the high jump for fourth place and long jumped a seasonal best of 15 feet, 2.5 inches and finished sixth.

The 400-meter relay team of Urbanoski, sophomore Britney Ivers, freshman Sierra Arellano and freshman Adrie Camp placed second.

Camp also finished eighth in the 200.

On the boys side, junior Brian Ivy continued to be a team highlight.

Ivy won the triple jump and was second in the long jump. Ivy's personal best of 44 feet, 5 inches was almost a foot better that his previous best. Ivy leads Class 4A in the triple. He also finished second in the long jump with a leap of 20 feet, 3.25 inches.

Ivy scored 18 of the boys 26 points. The boys team finished 12th out of 15 teams.
