Clippers, Trojans and Lightning headed for state coed track meet

DES MOINES– Student athletes from Clear Creek Amana (CCA), Iowa City West High and Liberty High qualified 47 events to compete in the 2018 State Coed Track and Field Meet Thursday, May 17, through Saturday, May 19, at Drake University, in Des Moines.
West High’s Austin West earned the No. 1 seed in the 400-meter hurdles and the No. 2 spot in the 400-meter dash and long jump. Katie Severt, Isyss Shaw, Kitra Bell and Deniz Ince (with alternates Kiara Malloy-Salgado and Bailey Nock) claimed the No. 1 seed in the distance medley relay.
History is being made in “The Creek” as CCA’s Seb Johanson and Matt Brimeyer became the second and third qualifiers in the 110-meter hurdles since 2006, as did Nick Gerard and Johanson in the long jump. Brimeyer, Johanson, Trever Stockman and Alex Figueroa (with alternates Cade Stratton and Dylan Sheely) will make CCA’s third state appearance for the 4x100-meter relay since 2006. This will be the third consecutive appearance for the boys 4x800-meter relay with Kaden McAreavy, Jack Sexton, Quentin Gisleson and Jordan Wolfe carrying the baton this year. McAreavy and Cole Liebe are alternates.
The Clippers’ boys shuttle hurdle relay is also making its third consecutive appearance with Brimeyer, Stockman, Johanson and Andrew Swails in the lineup this year. Jackson Rosenberg and Brandon Barker are alternates. Barker is also only the fifth state qualifier in the 3,200-meter run in the history of CCA track and field.
Ainsley Schrock nailed the No. 1 seed in the 3A discus throw.
Liberty High’s Camille Mac and Taylor Cannon made school history last month as the first two student athletes to qualify for the Drake Relays, and return to the blue oval for the 800-, 1,500- and 3,000-meter run (Mac) and 100-meter hurdles (Cannon).
