MILLARD – Plattsmouth track and field athletes squared off against many larger schools Saturday during action at the Millard North Relays.
The Blue Devils competed against a host of Class A opponents during a meet that followed a relays-only format. The setup allowed many athletes to gain varsity experience during the day. It also gave coaches a chance to try different types of relay lineups.
The Plattsmouth girls medaled in five events at the meet. The Blue Devils won awards in the 400-meter relay, 800-meter relay, 1,600-meter relay and sprint medley relay. Chloe Sabatka added a fourth-place honor in the triple jump.
The PHS boys also captured medals in five events. The team finished in the top six spots in the 400-meter relay, 4x55 shuttle hurdle relay and 4x160 shuttle hurdle relay.
Hunter Smith claimed Plattsmouth’s lone championship with a first-place height of 11-0 in the pole vault. Dakota Minshall and Sam Montes both added medals in the pole vault and Kaleb Smith and Andrew Rathman medaled in the high jump.
