Chase County’s boys and girls notched two more wins Saturday, defeating nine other teams at the Mike Troxel Track Invitational at Hershey.

Sunny skies and gentle breezes provided perfect weather for athletes and spectators. The outcome for the Lady Longhorns was never in doubt, as they won 11 of 18 events and set three meet records on their way to blowing past runner up St. Pat’s 205-75.

Mullen’s 61 points were good for third.

Things were not that easy for the Longhorn boys. St. Pat’s battled them all day, and despite closing out the meet with a 4x400 victory the Irish came up one point short, losing 123-122.

Mullen ended the day with 87 points to finish in third.

When the dust had settled, three schools had set five new meet records.


Mallie McNair paced Chase County taking gold medals in the 400, 800 and as a member of the 4x400 relay team. McNair’s 2:21.14 time in the 800 set a new meet record beating the 2:25.1 from 2008.

In addition, the Longhorn bested records in two of the girls’ relays. Their time of 4:15.49 in the 4x400 beat the 4:18 set in 2008 and a 10:13.93 time in the 4x800 knocked four seconds off the 2014 record 10:18.

Double medal winners for the Longhorns included Adelaide Maxwell 100- 4x100, Allison Owings, shot- discus, Sophie Spady, 4x100- 4x400 and Taylor Wheeler 4x400- 4x800.

Mullen’s Addy Vinton took home three golds champion in the girls’ division, winning the long jump, 100 and 300 hurdles for the Lady Broncos.


Chase County captured six first place medals compared to St. Pat’s four and picked up enough top six finishes to gather enough points and outlast the Irish.

Longhorn distance runner Will Kuenne scored double golds winning the 1600 with a 4:45.18, beating the 2011 record of 4:52.7 by seven seconds. He followed up with a new record time of 10:28.9 in the 3200, knocking 12 seconds from the 10:40.6 in 2015. Also, Cody Williams added double golds for Chase County in the long and high jump.

Lance Moore won multiple gold for Mullen with victories in the 110 and 300 hurdles.

St. Pat’s Chase Ochs raced to victory in the 800, running a 1:59.04 to shatter the previous 2009 meet record of 2:06. Ochs added a second gold as a member of the 4x400 record setting relay team, which ran a 3:31.78, a second better than the 2008 time of 3:32.8.

Finally, Hershey’s 4x800 team won with a record setting time of 8:27.94. The previous record set in 2008 was 8:34.0.

Chase County will return to Hershey April 28 to compete in the Southern Platte Valley Association conference meet.
