Tigers Finish Season Strong

Kaben Pickett is State Champion in Discus and Shot Put

The Encampment Tigers finished their boys and girls season at state in Casper, Wyoming from Thursday May 18 to Saturday May 20.  All the teams from around the state came to compete and the tigers went to work in the 1A classification.

PIckett came away as both the 1A boys state champion in the shot put and the discus.  He threw the discus 145-11 and the shot put 45-2.75.  Quade Jordan took second place in the discus with a throw of 137-9.  Bryce Reid finished in 3rd place on the 110 Meter Hurdles.

On the girls side, Kyenna Jackson placed 2nd in the shot put with a throw of 35-10.  Kristie Jordan placed 2nd in the discus with a throwing distance of 103-1.  The 4x800 Relay team placed third with a time of 11:32.83.  

Here are Coach Willford’s thoughts of the state track meet:

"We had three successful days at state.  The weather was as good as it's been at a state track meet for years and we had a lot of our athletes end the season with great times, distances and places."
