Tritle qualifies for Drake
April 26, 2013
Lisbon sophomore Keegan Tritle is the Lions' lone qualifier for the prestigious Drake Relays this weekend in Des Moines.
"Keegan is one of only two underclassmen to qualify," said Casey Baxa, Lion head coach.
The top 25 throwers earn the opportunity to compete against the top athletes in the state, and Tritle had the 23rd best qualifying throw of 50 feet, three inches.
"To qualify as a sophomore in the shot put is a huge accomplishment," Baxa said.
The Lions competed at Center Point-Urbana last week and finished second with 92 points. The host Pointers won the meet with 201 team points.
Lisbon's shuttle hurdle team of Tanner Sackett-Hopkins, Nate Heims, Tyler Svatosch and Cameron Jorgenson finished third in a time of 1:05.44.
Sackett-Hopkins ran to a fourth-place finish in the 400m hurdles race, finishing in 1:00.90.
Lion senior Caleb Schmidt was second in the 800m race in a time of 2:09.65. Austin Springsteen won the 1600m race in 4:41.60.
The Lions competed at West Liberty, Friday.
