Gomez sets discus record at Heitkotter Invitational

Boulder City’s Sam Gomez set a meet record with a discus throw of 163 feet, 7 inches Saturday in the Heitkotter Invitational track and field meet at Faith Lutheran.

Gomez helped the Eagles finish in fifth place overall with 57 points among 20 teams. Division I school Centennial won the meet with 150 points, but the Eagles finished second among Division I-A schools behind Faith Lutheran, which had 72 points.

“It’s early in the season, but it was a good feeling to win the discus and to have our team sweep the shot put,” said Gomez, a junior. “Coach is working us hard. Despite the success of our throwers and my winning the discus, there is still so much more room for improvement. I am happy with the first place placing in the discus but not the winning throw. I can do better.”

The Eagles dominated the shot put by taking the three top spots. Senior Andrew Sands won the event with a throw of 49-11, while teammate senior Jack Rozycki was second (46-7.5) and Gomez was third (45-5.75).

Senior Brooks Roe finished second in the 300 meter hurdles and third in the 110 meter hurdles to Canyon Springs’ Bradley Alexander, but in both events Roe had the best time among Division I-A competitors.

Roe’s time of 41.37 was almost three seconds faster than Sunrise Mountain’s Chris Edmonds (44.06).

Roe’s time of 16.25 was best in Division I-A, edging fourth-place finisher Pahrump Valley’s Dylan Montgomery, who finished in 16.85.

Freshman Zach Trone finished fourth in the long jump with a distance of 19-7.

Girls Track and Field

Sariah Gneiting was second in the shot put with a throw of 33-9 and third in the discus with a throw of 86-8 to lead Boulder City last Saturday in the Heitkotter Invitational at Faith Lutheran.

Gneiting helped the Lady Eagles finish tied for sixth place overall with Sierra Vista with 29 points among 17 teams. Division I school Centennial won the meet with 177 points. But the Lady Eagles were third among Division I-A schools behind Faith Lutheran (117.5) and Pahrump Valley (34).

Senior Alexis Fenyves finished second in the triple jump with a leap of 32 feet, 7.25 inches.

Swimming

Boulder City’s defending state champion boys and girls swim teams had 12 swimmers listed as “swimmers to watch” in Southern Nevada by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The boys, aiming for a fifth consecutive state championship, were Braden Klouse, Nick Lara, Jason Lyon and Sam Sauerbrei.

The girls, looking for a third consecutive championship, were led by McKenzie Cummings, Sarah Estes, Mandy Gebhart, Alex Hubel, Aubrey Klouse, Montana Lloyd, Jessica Purdy and Abby Sauerbrei.

On Saturday, Lars Palmer won the 100 butterfly (1:04.31) and 100 backstroke (1:06.05) but the Boulder City boys team lost 152-127 to Faith Lutheran at the municipal pool. Sauerbrei won the 200 individual medley (2:05.05) and 100 breaststroke (1:06.39), and Lyon won the 200 freestyle (2:02.53) and 500 freestyle (5:20.25).

Hubel and Lloyd each won two events as the Lady Eagles beat Faith Lutheran 190-95 Saturday. Hubel won the 200 freestyle in 1:53.85 and the 100 freestyle in 53.06. Lloyd was first in the 200 individual medley (2:10.74) and 100 backstroke (53.44).

Boys Golf

Boulder City’s Luke Logan and Kyler Atkinson were listed as “golfers to watch” among the top 20 golfers in Southern Nevada by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Logan shot a 1-under par 35 to win medalist Monday, but the Eagles lost the match 197 to 200 to Green Valley at Boulder Creek Golf Course. Atkinson shot 38.

The Eagles shot a two-day total of 686 last weekend to finish 10th in the Pahrump Valley Invitational.
