The Libby and Troy high school track and field teams faced fierce competition Saturday at the Archie Roe in Kalispell, but came away in the top three in multiple events with several wins for Libby as well.

Libby sophomore Jay Beagle placed first in the 400 meter dash with a personal best time of 50.41 seconds. He also won the javelin, throwing for 133 feet, 2 inches.

For Troy, senior Hunter Leighty had the most successful day. Though he added about 3/4 of a second to his 400 meter dash time over this best so far, he dropped his time in the 200 meter dash by about 1/4, setting a new personal best at 23.24 seconds.

Leighty took third place in the 100 meter, 200 meter and 400 meter dashes.

Beagle and Leighty were once again in incredibly close competition. Beagle set a personal best in the 200 meter dash as well, taking second place with 23.21 seconds -- only .03 seconds ahead of Leighty.

Troy freshman A.J Starks set a new personal record in the 1,600 meter run, finishing in 5:24.58.

In the shot put, Troy senior Tyler Gromley threw a new personal best, reaching 36 feet, 11 inches. He also had a new personal best in the discuss, hitting 99 feet, 8.5 inches.

Troy junior Ella Pierce, who has been battling with a knee injury was the only Lady Trojan who made it onto the results from the event, reaching 4 feet, 7 inches in the high jump, an inch short of her personal best.

Libby junior John Cheroske set a personal best in the 800 meter run, finishing in 2:05.04, and senior Will O’Connell had personal bests in both the 1,600 meter run and the 3,200 meter run -- as did freshman teammate Dawson Rose in the 3,200 meter run.

Libby senior Cyrus Sweedman hit a personal best in discus, winning the event with 126 feet, 4.5 inches. He also had a personal record in the shot put with 43 feet, 1.75 inches, and in the javelin with 124 feet, 4 inches.

Libby senior Colten Clemons came in second in the high jump, reaching a personal record 6 feet, 2 inches. Junior teammate Keith Johnson held at 6 feet from prior competitions.

The Lady Loggers did not fair quite as well as the boys, with senior Autumn Fajotina having the only personal best, throwing for 52 feet, 11 inches in the javelin.

However, Fajotina joined several teammates in setting season records, including senior Emma Gruber and sophomore Bridget Pena.
