Three GHS relay teams earn points in Worland

With the Bill Gerrard Memorial cancelled due to the expectation of rain, the Greybull Buffs and other track teams were last-minute additions to the field for the D&D Invitational April 4 in Worland.
The four 3A teams in attendance, including the host Warriors, Powell, Lovell and Thermopolis, dominated the team score. Only the Riverside girls, who placed fourth, prevented them from sweeping the top four places in the boys and girls divisions.
For the young Buffs, the measure of success has become personal improvement.  Lacking in numbers, they placed ninth in the boys division with 14 points and 10th in the girls with 3.5.
All 14 of the Greybull boys’ points came in the relays thanks to third-, fourth- and sixth-place finishes by combinations of the following freshmen and sophomores:  Jesse Brown, Cord Edeler, Shawn August, Caiden Sorenson, Kamryn Gorski, Anthony Chacon and Clayton Didrickson.
Wyatt Whaley turned in the performance of the day.  The freshman bettered her PR in the shot put by more than 3 feet, throwing 31-10 which was good for sixth place.
Chaise Benasky contributed the other half-point, placing eighth in the 100-meter hurdles.
The Buffs are scheduled to compete in Dayton Friday and in Powell Saturday.
