MCHS delivers a strong showing against top area track teams at Bulldog Stadium

Moffat County High School runners, throwers and jumpers enjoyed strong performances despite tough conditions at the Clint Wells Invitational Friday. Hosting a field of 12 teams at the meet, the MCHS boys track team placed fourth with 83 points while the girls finished ninth, scoring 32. The Glenwood Springs High School boys and girls won both team competitions. The meet was highlighted by strong individual and team performances from MCHS. Junior Eryn Leonard led from the gun to the finish line in winning the 1600 meter run with a time of 5:54.6. Leonard also placed fifth in the girls 800 meter run, just ahead of Bulldogs senior Ane Naerby. “It feels nice [to win at home],” Leonard said of the 1600. “I hit my 400 and 800 times, and from that point on it’s just a race; you just race to the finish.”
