Seward runners shine at Colony Invitational


eld team didn’t have many in numbers when they arrived for the 2017 Colony Invitational track meet on Friday in Palmer. What they lacked in numbers, they more than made up for in medals.

Seward collected a first-place in the girls’ division and two more in the boys’ classification and finished high in the overall standings. The Lady Seahawks finished ninth with 22 points. The SHS boys were 11th in their division.

Ruby Lindquist highlighted the Lady Seahawks’ outing in Palmer. The Seward junior sprinted to the top spot in the girls’ 800-meter run. She legged out a time of 2 minutes and 24.03 seconds. Her time was more than 6 seconds faster than Homer’s Aufrey Rosencrans.

Lindquist also finished fourth in the girls’ 3,200-meter race. She checked in with a final mark of 11:38.60.

Seward’s Coral Petrosius also did well in the meet. She was fifth in the discus with a throw of 91 feet and 7 inches, and sixth in the high jump at 4-6.

Hunter Kratz was among the meet’s top male athletes. He won the boys’ 800 and 3,200-meter events. In the 800, he sprinted to a time of 1:59.42 and edged out Anchorage Chrisian’s Ben Bennett for the win. Bennett was second at 2:00.49.

Kratz was more dominant in the 3,200-meter race. His winning time of 9:44.99 was more than 10 seconds better than the nearest competitor.

Connor Spanos and Trapper Allen also did well in Palmer. Spanos raced his way to fifth in the 400-meter dash, while Allen was seventh in the 110-meter hurdles.

The SHS track teams will return to action this Saturday when they compete in Soldotna.
