Fehlberg, Killpack win races at State track
|Camille Fehlberg places second in state in the long jump.|
If you watch Camille Fehlberg or Tyler Killpack very long, one of the attributes that quickly surfaces is their apparent determination to do well in whatever it is that they are doing. Last week at the state track meet, both Camille and Tyler came home victorious in their respective races. Camille won the 300-meter hurdles and in the process set a new state record for any classification. Tyler won the 800-meter race.
Tyler qualified as the sixth fastest in his race for the finals with a time of 2:00.88 and then won the finals with a time of 1:57.08, 3.8 seconds faster than his qualifying time.
Tyler came back to anchor the 4x400 meter relay team. The team finished eighth. The team consisted of McKay Allred, Cole Bunderson, Blake Jensen and Killpack.
The only other Spartan to place was Zac Clement. Zac finished seventh in the javelin with a best throw of 164-04. The Emery boys finished 15th with 13 points.
