TV boys' track 4x200 team places seventh at State


DES MOINES - The Turkey Valley boys’ 4x200 team of Will Einwalter, Cody Hackman, Cale Reicks and Wyatt Blazek posted the highest finish for the Trojans at the Class 1A State Track Meet May 18-20 at Drake Stadium as they placed seventh overall in a time of 1:33.24 seconds.
In the boys’ sprint medley relay, the Trojans’ team of Einwalter, Hackman, Blazek and Reicks finished eighth in a time of 1:37.59.
Blazek and Hackman, who are both seniors, said they have really enjoyed competing in Des Moines. This year marked Blazek’s fourth trip to State while Hackman has ran at State for three years.
“It’s exciting and fun coming here to State,” Blazek said. “Coming to State for four straight years is good stuff.”
“Getting to State is the goal every year,” Hackman said. “For me, this is my third trip to State, and I couldn’t have asked for anything more.
“We were happy with our time in the 4x200, which allowed us to earn a medal. Our 4x200 time was our best this year. We just missed getting a school record in the 4x200, but our sprint medley time was a school record,” Hackman said.
Individually, Wyatt Blazek placed 14th in the 100 dash preliminaries in a time of 11.51 seconds. The top eight competitors in the preliminaries advanced to the finals. Kyle Langreck finished 22nd in the 110 hurdles in 16.27 seconds, and Luke Anderson placed 13th in the discus with a toss of 128 feet, 9 inches.
In the 4x100 relay preliminaries, TV’s team of Evan Drilling, Hackman, Reicks and Blazek placed 18th in 45.61 seconds. 
Running in the 4x800 relay, the Trojan boys’ team of Elliott Dietzenbach, John Gossling, Jordon Snyder and Zach Gillen placed 20th in 8:46.36.
“I was very pleased with how the team did in Des Moines,” TV Boys’ Coach Mark Scott said. “All the athletes competed as close to their best in the conditions. The  athletes received a great experience by competing at the State meet. The 4x200 and 800 Medley relay members both received medals.”
