FILER, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) —The 3A boys 4X200 relay featured all four schools in the SCIC and it was a tight race throughout. Gooding on the outside had a small lead after one lap, but here comes Filer and Kimberly and Buhl not far behind, but on the final 200, substitute runner Jake Lamoreaux filled in nicely in the anchor position, helping seal the win for the Wildcats.

And Gooding edges past Kimberly to capture the second and final position to state, before the runner tumbled to the ground.

“Competition is always good with the relays between Kimberly and Gooding, I feel bad for Buhl, they dropped the baton, but our group of guys are always working, we’re missing our fastest guy, he’ll be at state with us hopefully,” Tegun Tews of Filer explained.

The 100 meter dash races followed, and a great opportunity to see some of the fastest runners in the area, in the girls race, Buhl’s Aileen Verduzco had no problem holding off the competition to win for the Indians, finishing with a time of 13.07 seconds, holding off Ella Cummins of Kimberly, who recorded a time of 13.52 seconds.

Then for the boys there’s no stopping Gatlin Bair.

The Kimberly sophomore won the 3A district race with ease, producing a time of 10.73 seconds. The next closest, fellow Bulldog, Dylan Hollist who finished with a time of 11.38 seconds.
