Hahn’s 1600 is top effort at Bow Invite

The Gothenburg boys track team had to deal with the state FFA convention along with other competitors Friday at the Broken Bow Invitational.

Because of the FFA convention, the Swedes were missing a number of their top performers including Tanner Borchardt, Blake Ristine, Jacob Clark and Ross Ostendorf.

As a result, Gothenburg placed at the bottom of the team standings with 29 points.

Nobody was going to keep Cozad from the meet championship. The Haymakers poured it on with 184 points, more than twice as many points as runner-up Holdrege with 91.

Cozad has perhaps its best track team ever with individuals that can score in every event, Swede coach Steve Reeves said.

Collin Hahn topped the Swede performers with a second place finish in the 1600-meter run. The Gothenburg freshman came in at 4:46.6, two seconds behind the winner.

Roy Slack set personal records while placing in both the discus and shot. He was fourth in the discus with a toss of 151-4 and fifth in the shot at 47-2.

Skyler Kottwtiz earned fourth place in the pole vault with a top effort of 13-0.

Seth Eggleston was fourth in the 110-meter high hurdles at 17 seconds flat. He also placed fifth in the 300 intermediate hurdles (:45.2).

Dawson Graham posted fifth place finishes in both the long jump (20-3) and triple jump (37-7).

Two meet records were set. Cooper Rogers of Hold-rege erased the old mark in the 100-meter dash held by Gothenburg’s Jeff Neujahr with a time of :10.4. Andrew Fields of Ord ran 9:49.9 to break the record in the 3200-meter run.
