Wall’s Karol Patterson, and her staff, helped Coach the Wall Girls and Boys to Region 7B champs. One of her athletes, Wall’s Cash Wilson is qualified in the 100, 200, 400, 400 relay, 800 relay and Medley Relay and MILE RELAY…He can only run four events at the state meet..Which 4 will they be? (Most of these photos are courtesy of Bonnie Law).
First of all a big shout-out to the Wall track coaches: Karol PattersonAsst. Coaches:Stacy Hess, Ashley Kier, Dave Ermish. Both the boys and girls teams won region titles last week. The girls team is sending a number of state qualifiers, AND, the track was littered with young folks that are likely to make this program one to contend with in the next few seasons.
Some of the Wall girls results:
100 M -
4 Searra-Sioux Deuts 8 Wall 13.81
5. Nora Dinger 7 Wall 14.12
3 Paige Kjerstad 7 Wall 1:05.79 6 4 Keaunna Poor Bear 9 Wall 1:10.26
2 Keaunna Poor Bear 9 Wall 2:46.61
7th grader Alexis Watson qualified in the 1600 and 3200 meters.
Wall won the 400 and 800 relays at regions and will be going to state
4x800 relay is going to state
Buch of shot put and discus girls to state
9th Grader Ava Dinger won the triple jump and was third in the long jump (15’8”)
All season long, the boys team from Wall has been aiming for a state track title. They were close a year ago, and now, a year later they are hunting for BEAR….
Wilson is ranked 6th in the 100 meters and 4th in the 200 meters…He has the top time in the 400 meters (49.68
Check out where the Wall relays are ranked:
400m Relay - 45.95
800m Relay - 1:35.66
Medley Relay - 3:52.65
2.Sunshine Bible Academy3:44.42
(Do not know why Wall wasn’t in the fast heat at Howard Wood, BUT, they weren’t…Put Timber Lake and Sunshine Bible Academy and Wilson anchoring with the 800….we could see fireworks).
The think that makes Wall so dangerous coming into the state meet is they have a nice mix of sprinters that can interchange in those relays.
They’ve also got hurdlers: THEE hurdler
Wall junior Andrew Law has the fastest 110 meter hurdle time this season at 15.18…He is the No. 3 ranked 300 meter hurdler in the B ranks (41.49), BUT, he’s the defending state champ in those 300 hurdles…Big points coming from a guy who loves track.
Believe this is Tack Tines from Wall (Let me know if I’m wrong) but the sophomore has the 4th best long jump in the B ranks - 21’4”
He also has the 11th ranked triple jump so far this season.
Placed in the triple jump and 200 meters as a freshman one year ago.
And, senior Jacob Bielmaier has the 6th best high jump in the B ranks….6-feet…He’s been very steady and consistent at that height this year…If he can get 6-foot-1 or 6-foot-2 Wall could be getting a big boost from a guy that hasn’t done track his entire career.
Really nice to see some of that strength and conditioning in Wall paying off at the highest levels. Good luck to all of the Eagle athletes, fans, coaches and parents. Check out the kids from Wall headed to state.
