The Chieftain boys and girls track teams both finished in second place at the Middle Border Conference meet held in Amery. The boys were runner-ups to New Richmond while the girls placed second behind Somerset.


Both the boys and girls teams had three individual event winners.

Adam Schuman and Paige Garriga were both double winners, capturing the shot put and discus.
Brea Tinney won the 1,600-meter run and the 1,600-meter relay team of Tyler Olson, Matt Weber, Avery Bundgaard and Alex Mahler also finished first.

Next up for track teams is the Regional meet, at Somerset, on May 26.


Girls final team standings:
1) Somerset 165.5
2) Osceola 138.5
3) New Richmond 109
4) Ellsworth 105
5) Amery 66
6) Baldwin-Woodville 53
7) Prescott 46
8) Durand 6



Boys final team standings:
1) New Richmond 171
2) Osceola 146.5
3) Prescott 100.5
4) Somerset 82
5) Baldwin-Woodville 73
6) Ellsworth 62
7) Amery 34
8) Durand 29



Amery 7th in track?[&:] I guess I havent remotely followed track in a couple years but were they not at or near the top for like two straight decades? Seeing them just 5 points ahead of Durand is kind of a shocker, given Durands' very un-prestigious track history in recent years.?

When did the slide begin? How long has it been since Bosley was the coach? Is it just a cycle thing or are kids choosing different extracurricular actvitites?

Amery had a great run from the early-90s until about 3 years ago. I think Bosley retired as head coach about five years ago (give or take a year). There just haven't been many athletes going through, at least not "track fast" athletes. Numbers are about half what they were at the peak.

Amery had a great run from the early-90s until about 3 years ago. I think Bosley retired as head coach about five years ago (give or take a year). I think the coaching change is more a coincidence than the reason for slide. There just haven't been many athletes going through, at least not "track fast" athletes. Numbers are about half what they were at the peak.


Amery's had it real tough the last couple years since the Karo bros graduated. They brought in a ton of points. Osceola and NR have been the class of the conference for the last few years now, but it's awesome to see Prescott come through in 3rd, their highest finish since '04.

Jessop Keene could do some real damage in the 3,200 at state, he broke the school record earlier this year and I wouldn't be surprised to see him break 9:50 or lower when he's up against top competition.
Ricky Rubio will be a Pamela Anderson sized bust.

Congratulations to Dylan Rivard for Breaking the 400m Dash record for Somerset with a time of 50.80 last night at Regionals in Somerset. Cory Hehling held the record of 50.87 until yesterday. Still more running to come. I am so proud of you!!! You have worked very hard this year!! Keep up the work. Lets see what you can do Friday...
There is no I in team!

BW has been running the 4x100 with a back up guy since before conference. That probably cost them a first at conference. But with this same group, they got first in the regional. Now, they will have the same team that beat the school record in tact for friday.

but there time is fourth in the sectional. Hopefully the kid they have been missing can bring them back under 45. The handoffs are going to have to be the best they have been.

49 can't be too far away. Great job! Just curious.... has Dylan ever ran the open 100, 200, and 400 in the same meet? Is that an option to maxamize his point potential. I know it is hard in meets that have trials and finals ala Conference and regionals etc... It has been done. Any thoughts?


Yes, we have thought of that...we have done 100, 400 and 1600 relay, but we hadn't put him the 200...that was a thought for conference, however, we wanted the competition for the 4x4 at the conference meet, so it wasn't an option. Hind sight, right...? Could he do it? Almost without a doubt...the kid has a lot of natural endurance and speed. Does he want to...?

49? He needs his competitors to be on their very best and the temps to be warm (although I guess he doesn't need warm temps quite as much as I thought [])...Can he do it? I have absolutely no doubt about it! He thrives on the competition...the more the better! Man I love coaching a kid that loves to compete--and is not afraid to hurt! He should have plenty of competition on Friday!


If there is one thing for sure it takes a ton of courage to be a great 400 runner. Most kids would choose to run the 100 and the 200 rather than the 400. I don't think Dylan is aware of just how fast he is. which is ok... as long as he doesn't look at 49 as some magical barrier that is impossible to accomplish. It would be great for dylan to get on that podium in la crosse. I know you can't put the cart before the horse...Good luck at Sectionals and congratulations on the record. Before Corey broke the previous record it had stood since the mid 1960's.

Dylan not only has confidence, he has faith in his ability and faith in our coaching (and there is not an ounce of arrogance--which makes it all the more sweet!). Dylan knows 49 is there for him, it's just a matter of when.

He appears to love the 400 distance and it takes a pretty special athlete to achieve what he has already deservedly achieved in his sophomore season! I agree when you say it takes a ton of courage to be a great 400 runner...he has as much courage as he does confidence and it is such an awesome thing to witness!

Thank you for the well wishes for him!

Congrats to Dylan. That's an amazing accomplishment breaking a school record only being a sophomore. Nice Job! []

It would be even greater to see him standing on that podium down on the new track at La Crosse. Good luck buddy.

Glad the 400 isn't my race...
