Decathlon And Heptathlon Open First Day Of The 2017 Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee

first_img“Being an Iowan, I take a lot of pride in the Relays,” Brondyke said. “I still remember the first Relays I qualified for my sophomore year of high school (in 2005). It was a really big deal. I have a lot of respect for what this meet represents for the kids in the state of Iowa. Wednesday Results (TXT) “Having been a part of it really since my sophomore year in high school, it’s hard to say no to something like this. I wish weather would cooperate more often, but it’s so cool to compete on the Blue Oval.” Gochenour, who placed 13th at the Olympic Trials last summer after a fourth-place finish at the NCAA meet, started her 2017 outdoor season with a third-place finish at the Texas Relays, scoring 5,922 points. “There’s a few execution issues, but I’m still early in my season. This is my planned first dec,” said Brondyke, who is an assistant to Central Missouri track coach Kip Janvrin, a 15-time Drake Relays decathlon champion. “I didn’t expect to be very crisp or in end-of-season form by any means. But overall, stringing the day together, I was pretty happy.” Seventeen athletes started the day and 16 completed all five events. Northern Iowa sophomore Austin Heitland is third with 3,563 points and Tyler Grob, who was a Division II All-American at Saginaw Valley State, sits in fourth place with 3,545 points. Wednesday Results (HTML) Kurtis Brondyke, a former Clinton High School and Central College athlete, leads the decathlon with 3,928 points through the first five events. Gochenour has strung together a long list of accomplishments on the Drake track, winning 13 state championships and four Drake Relays titles during her high school years. She’ll be inducted into the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union’s Track Hall of Fame in Drake Stadium at the state meet next month. Wednesday Results (PDF) Brondyke, the 2014 Relays champion, finished first in the long jump, shot put and high jump and took third in 100. He faltered during the second half of the final event, the 400, but still had a fast enough time (51.37 seconds) for a healthy lead at the end of the brisk, chilly day.center_img Former Iowa State athlete Taylor Sanderson, an All-American and a Big 12 champion, was second with 3,793. Sanderson, a former Bondurant-Farrar standout, was consistent throughout the day, winning the 100 and finishing second in the four other events. Thursday Start List “It wasn’t exactly the day one I wanted, but considering the weather conditions it was a really good start,” Gochenour said. “I had a pretty solid hurdle, right around what I needed in the high jump, was close to a PR in the shot put, had an OK 200. Kind of tightened up, probably a little bit of not taking care of myself in this cold weather.” Gochenour, who lives and trains in Fayetteville, Arkansas, started the day by winning the 100 hurdles in 13.61 seconds and held the lead throughout. She also won the high jump and shot put and finished third in the 200. Two veterans of competition on the Drake Stadium Blue Oval sit atop the standings after the first day of action in the multi-events, which marked the start of the 108th running of the Drake Relays presented by Hy-Vee. “I love it,” she said. “I’m just out here having fun at this point. I love the stadium, I love the town, the fans are great.” Story Links For both, Drake Stadium has become a special place to compete. Alex Gochenour, who starred at Logan-Magnolia before a collegiate career at LSU and Arkansas, is the heptathlon leader with 3,526 points after Wednesday’s four events. Sami Spenner, a former UNO University standout, tied Gochenour in the high jump and is second overall with 3,317 points. Iowa State sophomore Emma Whigham, who won the 200, is third with 3,068 and Northern Iowa junior Lauren Frederick is fourth among the eight competitors with 2,949 points. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
