Springers win 16 medals at Hershey state meet

The 2003 version of the Glenwood Springers club track team may be younger than it’s been recently, but they still match up well against the rest of the state.

A contingent of 29 Springers participated in the state Hershey Track meet at Jeffco Stadium in Lakewood on Saturday.

And the Glenwood athletes posted plenty of strong marks.

Four Springers recorded personal best times in four different events. Six had second-place finishes.

One Springer, Sharaya Dawn Selsor, might have secured a spot at the National Hershey meet in Hershey, Penn., later this summer too.

In winning the girls 13- to 14-year-old 1,600 meter run, Selsor has put herself in consideration for a national berth.

However, the 5 minute, 58:25 time she clocked has to be compared with the winning times among six states and two provinces in Canada.

Selsor also finished second in the 13-14 girls 800 meters, and Sharara’s younger sister, Katrina Dawn, took second place in the 11-12 girls 800 meters by finishing the race in 2:43.30.

Tony Garling had second-place times in the 13-14 boys 800 and 1,600 meter runs – both personal bests.

Allison Brown, 10, had the Springers’ other second-place marks. Those came in the 9-10 girls 100 and 400 meter dashes.

Amanda Alberico, a freshman at Glenwood Springs High, had her best 800 meter time of the season on Saturday – a 2:51.74 – to finish sixth.

Natalie Whitmore took third place in the 11-12 girls 200 and fifth in the 100. Meg Weibel finished fifth in the 11-12 girls 100 and sixth in the 200. Lyndsey Wesson was fifth in the 13-14 girls 200.

Holly Brown earned sixth place in the 9-10 girls 50 meter sprint. Caitlin Barnes was seventh in the 11-12 girls softball throw and Kevin Hartman took eighth place in the 9-10 boys 200 meter dash
