The Three Forks High School Track and Field team continues to produce impressive results with a strong showing at last week’s Manhattan Christian Invite at Gallatin High School.
The girls’ team finished third out of 19 teams, and the boys’ finished fifth out of 17.
“We were missing a few seniors, so that hurt us overall, but it did allow for some of our younger athletes to get crucial reps,” said Head Coach Casey McWethy. “It’s clear we are getting into track shape as our numbers continue to improve. We are very proud of our kids.”
Sophomore Kylie Rowan had a phenomenal day for Three Forks, finishing first in two events. Rowan won the discus with a PR of 97-07.50 and won the shot put with a PR of 35-08.00.
“Kylie hasn’t even scratched the surface of her potential. She’s so consistent that when she PRs, it’s no surprise. We see her hit big numbers in practice all the time. I’m glad the state gets to see it week in and week out,” McWethy said.
Brielle Davis also had a big day, finishing second in the javelin at 111-08 and sixth in the discus at 91-03.50.
It was another strong day for eighth-grader Maya Noble, who was fifth in the 200 with a PR of 28.90 and a fifth-place finish in the pole vault. Eighth-grader Hailey Williams also shined, finishing fourth in the 400 with a PR of 1:04.55 and sixth in the 200 with a PR of 28.95. Zandra Potts finished eighth in the 200 with a PR of 29.10
Bella Jones continued to excel in the 800, finishing third with a time of 2:34.46. Devyn Judd had another top performance in the 300m hurdles with a PR of 54.11.
The 4x400 relay team of Jones, Judd, Potts, and Alyssa Golding was impressive, finishing in second at 4:37.31.
The 4x100 relay team of Potts, Noble, Kylee Reichman, and Williams finished in fourth at 53.96.

Senior Garrett Golding had a strong day for the Wolves, finishing in second in the 800 with a PR of 2:05.39 and seventh in the 400 with a PR of 54.22.
Beau Johnston finished third in the 1600 with a PR of 4:42.14, and Fanning was fourth in the event at 4:56.36. Fanning was third in the 3200 with a time of 10:30.14. Cass Violett finished seventh in the 1600 with a time of 5:02.02 and placed ninth in the 800 with a PR of 2:22.14.
The 4x400 Relay team of Thomas Rowan, Johnston, Golding, and Brady Olson finished in sixth place.
Three Forks will next compete at the John Cheek Top 8 event on May 2 in Anaconda.
“As we get closer to the postseason, we want to continue to polish our techniques and get healthy. We haven’t hit our peak form yet. The goal is to do that as we enter the postseason,” McWethy said.
