RUPERT, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — You could not ask for a more beautiful day and it was a prime opportunity to catch a track meet at Minico High School.

The Minico quad featured the Spartans, Jerome, Pocatello and Twin Falls.

In the boys 100 meter dash, Jerome’s Taeo Schneider pulled away from the competition, winning the entire race, with a personal record, 10.47 seconds.

The senior placed fourth at the 4A state championships in 2019, but has since improved his speed.

He’s excited to make up for lost ground, especially since his junior season was cut short.

I only have one year left and this is my final season so I want to go out with a bang.

Schneider hopes to run at Eastern Oregon University.

The girls 800 meter run followed.

The two lap event is a fun one to watch, especially how stacked together everyone is in the first lap.

But then during the second lap, Twin Falls’ Jenna Bingham started to pull away and by the last 200 meters, she had a great distance between her and second place.

The junior won the race easily, also establishing a PR of 2:27.41 seconds.

And credits a former teammate and the two-time Gatorade Idaho Girls Runner of the Year for pushing her.

“Last year I had Mattie Geddes to push me,” Bingham said. “She was just a great inspiration, such a great leader. I was so sad to have lost that season with her and the other seniors. I was thinking to myself that I want to be like them, be an example to these younger girls, so we can just keep growing and succeeding as a team.”

The Twin Falls girls team and Jerome boys team won the track meet.
