  • Track Teams Finish Season at State Meet

    Girls 3200 Relay, Landon Rogers Bring Home Medals

    The Ord High School track and field teams completed their season last Friday and Saturday at the state track and field meet in Omaha at Burke Stadium.  In the team standings the Chanticleer boys scored 6 points to finish in a tie for 35th place while the girls scored 3 points and tied for 36th place.  “Overall, I thought we had a pretty good meet”, Coach Derry Trampe commented.  “I felt like we competed well in every event we qualified for and we had a few personal best marks.  We had a couple of close calls to get in for medals but just came up short. It is like every state meet in the fact that you leave the meet always wishing you could have had just a little more.  I am still very proud of the way our kids competed all season and with all the help I get from my assistant coaches. We would not be the successful team we are without all the hours they put into this team.”  


    The top ten teams in the state meet for the girls were: Aquinas Catholic (67), Lincoln Lutheran (51), Heartland (46), Chase County (41), North Bend Central (37), Hartington Cedar Catholic (31.5), Kearney Catholic (29), Johnson County Central (27), Superior (27), Crofton (23), Hastings St. Cecilia (23), and Ainsworth (23).  The top ten teams for the boys were: Hartington-Newcastle (52), Norfolk Catholic (46), Dundy County-Stratton (40), Thayer Central (28), Chase County (27), Sutton (25), Archbishop Bergan (25), Ainsworth (22), Shelby-Rising City (21), and Lincoln Lutheran (21).


    Landon Rogers brought home the highest finish from the state meet as he placed third in the discus with a toss of 147’ 2”.  Rogers’ throw came on his last throw of the competition and moved him from 5th to 3rd and earn him his first career state medal.  Also bringing home medals from the state meet were the members of the girls 4 X 800 relay team.  The team of Kloe Severance, Delaney Cargill, Abbi Stethem, and Ali Smith finished 6th in the event with a time of 10:13.04.  This was the first career state medal for Severance, Cargill, and Stethem and the second career medal for Smith.  “Anytime you can win a medal at the state meet you have to be pleased with the efforts or your kids”, Trampe said.  “These kids have had a great season and it was rewarding to see them finish it off with a state medal.” In addition to the medalists, the Chants had a couple of near misses as far as earning a medal.  Rogers finished 10th in the 100 and just missed making the finals by .07 seconds.  Payton Hackel was another near miss medalists as she finished 9th in the 100 high hurdles and missed qualifying for the finals by .1 seconds.


    The teams also had three individuals establish personal best efforts at the meet but did place.  Nate Wells finished 13th in the pole vault with a personal best vault of 13’ 0”.  Colton Rowse broke his personal best time in the 3200 meter run by over 11 seconds and finished the race in 10:25.76 to finish in 12th place.  Kloe Severance also set a personal best in the 1600 meter run with a time of 5:36.40 and finished in 12th place as well.  “It is always great to have our kids have their best performance at the state meet”, Trampe commented.  “You hope they can get a medal every time they compete but when you have your best performance of your career there is not much else you can do.”

    The 4 X 100 relay team of Trevin Kruml, Autsin Knapp, Garrett Bundy, and Landon Rogers finished in 13th place in a time of 46.56.  Knapp finished 14th in the 300 intermediate hurdles in a time of 42.43.  Harrison Benton finished 15th in the triple jump with a leap of 39’ 4”.  In the 1600-meter run Zach Smith finished 21st in a time of 4:56.47 and Nate Wells finished 22nd in a time of 4:57.97.  “We maybe could have done a little better in some of our events but the effort from our kids was as good as we could have hoped for”, Trampe said.  “I know a couple of the kids were disappointed in the results and I am disappointed for them but I am not disappointed with our efforts. Our kids always give everything they have when they compete and I am proud to be able to coach such quality young people.”

    Chant Golfers Wrap Up Season

    The Chanticleer golf team concluded it’s season at the C-4 District tournament in Cairo at Centura Hills Golf Club.  The Chants finished 14th (15), shooting a 438.  GICC won the meet with a 322 and Broken Bow was second at 324.  Those two teams and Kearney Catholic advance to state.

    Brodie Darnell was low score for Ord, shooting a 91.  He was followed by Ethan Ries at 96, Aaron White at 124 and Cooper Sheets at 127.  Shay Holm was forced to withdraw due to a shoulder injury.

    Coach Mike Bechtold said it looked for awhile like Ord might have an individual qualifier.

    “Brodie shot an outstanding front nine 41 that had him in 7th place at the turn,” Bechtold said, “He hit one in the water on 11 and never seemed to get the confidence back.  But he played well for most of the day.”

    Bechtold said White showed big improvement on the day.

    “Aaron shot a 71 on the front and a 53 on the back,” the coach said, “and an 18 stroke improvement is quite impressive.”

    Bechtold said Ethan Ries also had a good nine, shooting a 45 on the back.

    “We saw glimmers of what kind of golfers these kids can be all year, and now it is time for them to move to another level.  And that will take hard work and practice throughout the summer.”
