Wolves shine at Anaconda meet

With the postseason starting Friday at the 5B District meet in Belgrade, things are starting to come together for the Three Forks High School track and field team.

Last week, the Wolves were strong at the Top 8 Meet in Anaconda, and a Saturday meet in Laurel.

“I think things are clicking at the right time for both teams. Districts should be fun,” Head Coach Tracy Welter said.

Three Forks kicked off last week with an outstanding performance in Anaconda with the girls finishing second and the boys in fifth.

“Everyone had an incredible meet—lots of places and lots of PR’s. The kids love to go to this meet every year, and it’s kind of one of those end-of-year accolades that we all enjoy,” he said.

Senor Jasmyn Murphy had another big-time day finishing first in the 400 meters and long jump. Already the meet record holder in the 300 hurdles, Murphy set another meet record in the 400 with a time of 1:02.4. She also finished fourth in the 200 meters.

Junior Bryon Fanning also broke a meet record in the 3200 meters finishing first with a time of 10:36.6.

The boys 4x400 relay team of Jacob Buchignani, Jaron Berg, Dawson Frisinger, and Garrett Golding finished first for Three Forks. Golding also had a first-place finish for Three Forks in the 800 meters.

Jayden Woodland had an excellent day for the Wolves finishing second in the 1600. Woodland, Bella Jones, Devynn Judd, and Zandra Potts finished second in the 4x400 relay.

Kylie Rowan was second in the discus and third in the shot put, Jones was third in the 1600, Morgan Carr finished sixth in the shot put, and Brielle Davis was third in the javelin and fourth in the discus.

Buchignani was third in the 200 meters and sixth in the javelin, and Beau Johnston was fifth in the 1600.

Three Forks wrapped up the week with some impressive performances at Saturday’s All Walker Memorial “Stillwater” meet in Laurel.

On the boys’ side, Fanning had another good day finishing second in the 3200 and seventh in the 1600.

Buchignani was ninth in the 400 and tenth in the long jump, Johnston was fourth in the 3200, ninth in the 1600, and Dawson Frisinger was tenth in the triple jump.

On the girls’ side, Murphy was second in the 400 and long jump, and Woodland finished second in the 1600 and 3200. Jones finished fifth in the 800. The 4x400 relay team of Potts, Jones, Judd, and Davis finished in second. Rowan was third in the shot put, and Eva Parker finished seventh in the event.
