Claremore Christian

Results from the Heartland Christian Athletic Association state track meet on May 4 are in, and Claremore Christian had several athletes medal and set personal bests.

Drea Montalbano won the state championship in the high school girls discus throw with a school-record toss of 86 feet, 5 inches.

Montalbano also finished fourth in long jump and fifth in the 200-meter dash with a time of 31.62 seconds. Kendell Nankervis of Southwest Christian Academy won the 200 in 28.04 seconds.

The Warriors also had success on the middle-school level.

Logan Jones claimed the middle school boys’ shot put state title, breaking the school record with a throw off 33-00.33.

Jones wasn’t done there, though, for he went on to take sixth in the 100-meter dash with a time of 13.96 seconds. Daniel Goff of Prism Education Center won in 12.46 seconds.

Tyler Stephens also set a new school record, logging a throw of 80-10 in middle school discus to place third.

Jones and Stephens then teamed up with Deaken Abbott and Zac Robinett in the 4x100-meter relay, winning the event in 1:00.24, nearly six seconds ahead of the second-place finisher.

Elsewhere in relay action, the team of Maddox Pendleton, Brody Dake, Dylan Schulze and Abbott earned the 4x800 championship in 12:29. The Warriors sported the only middle school team in the race.

Grace Partney had herself a busy schedule, finishing fifth in the 100-meter hurdles (21.26), sixth in the 300 hurdles (1:03.10) and sixth in the 800-meter run (2:59).

Sunrise Christian’s Hannah Grover won the 800 in 2:41, and Whitney Carrigan of Providence Classical Christian Academy won both hurdle races with times of 18.82 seconds and 52.68 seconds, respectively.

Congratulations to all Claremore Christian tracksters on a successful ending to the 2019 season.
