The 2018 high school track and field season came to a close last month in Provo, with a couple state championship medals making the trip home to Tooele County.
The Stansbury boys sprint medley relay team, consisting of Silas Young, Jet Richins, Xander Littlefield and Josh Wintch, won its Class 4A championship race by more than four seconds. Grantsville’s Connor Ware was also a state champion, winning the Class 3A shot put championship by 4 1/2 inches.
Stansbury’s boys team finished third in Class 4A, while Tooele finished 24th with seventh-place finishes by Justin Rogers and Angel Garcia in the 110-meter hurdles and discus, respectively. On the girls side, Tooele finished eighth as thrower Sammy Thomas finished second in the discus, and Stansbury finished 11th with a fifth-place finish by Kayla Alvey in the 300-meter hurdles.
Grantsville’s boys finished seventh in Class 3A as distance runner Porter Whitworth finished second in the 3,200-meter run, while the girls team finished ninth behind fourth-place finishes by Sabrina Allen (1,600 and 3,200) and Jade Garcia (javelin).
