ADEL – A couple of strong individual outings highlighted Ballard’s performance at the Raccoon River Conference coed meet Saturday in Adel.

Tyson Pritchard won two events for the Ballard boys and Abby Kohut-Jackson picked up one gold and silver medal apiece for the Bomber girls.

On the boys’ side Ballard scored 49 points to edge Winterset by three points for sixth place out of eight teams. Boone easily won the team title with 124 points and Carroll took second with a score of 97.

Pritchard claimed gold in both the 100 and 200-meter dash events.

In the 100 Pritchard ran a time of 11.42 seconds to edge the :11.44 by Carroll’s Isaac Riesselman for first. Pritchard finished the 200 in :23.22 to beat out the :23.44 by Adel-Desoto-Minburn’s Grant Goeden for the victory.

“I’m very happy for Tyson,” Ballard head boys’ track coach Al Christian said. “Being a two-time champion in this conference is hard to do. He’s had an outstanding year.”

Pritchard ran the second leg on a 4 X 400 relay team that earned a bronze medal for Ballard. Kobe Schulze ran the opening leg, Kaleb Odden took the third leg and Isaiah Johnson ran the anchor as the Bombers finished in 3:35.12.

Carroll ran a 3:33.60 to win the event and Boone was second in 3:33.98.

Luke Kohut-Jackson joined Pritchard in winning two individual medals for Ballard. Kohut-Jackson placed third in both the 3,200 and 1,600.

“Two third-place finishes by Luke was good to see,” Christian said.

Kohut-Jackson came in behind Boone’s outstanding tandem of Albert Meier and Chandler Austin in the 3,200. Kohut-Jackson ran a 10:08.82 to trail the 9:51.19 by Meier and 9:51.20 by Austin and he defeated the fourth-place effort of Adel-Desoto-Minburn’s Josh Berger by 23 seconds.

Kohut-Jackson finished the 1,600 in 4:52.31 to beat Bondurant-Farrar’s Kubrak by nearly five seconds for the bronze. Austin and Meier were again first and second with respective times of 4:33.54 and 4:41.94.

Johnson delivered a fourth-place time of :52.05 in the open 400 and Noah Rosing was fifth in the long jump for the Bombers with a jump of 18 feet, nine inches. Ballard also took fifth in the shuttle hurdle and distance medley races and sixth in the 4 X 200.

The Ballard girls scored 34 points to beat Perry for sixth place. ADM and Boone dominated the girls’ competition as the Tigers won with 150.33 points and the Toreadors were a close second with a score of 142.

Abby Kohut-Jackson provided the Bomber girls with two individual medals.

Abby won the 800 in 2:29.08. In the 1,500 she took second in 5:15.57.

Abby also ran the opening leg for Ballard’s fourth-place 4 X 800 team. Val Charter, Ashley Meldrum and Alexis Scharfenkamp ran the final three legs as the Bombers ran a time of 10:38.72.

Rachel Watters finished fourth in the 400 hurdles and she also helped Ballard take sixth in the shuttle hurdle relay.

Watters completed the 400 hurdles in 1:12.87. She was joined by Gabby Scherle, Rachel Bruns and Hannah Jensen in running a 1:14.61 in the shuttle hurdle.

Erin Snell also placed in an individual event for the Bombers. Snell took sixth in the long jump with a peak jump of 14-4.75.

Ballard finished fifth in the 4 X 400. Charter, Scharfenkamp, Kohut-Jackson and Watters ran a time of 4:36.68.

The Bomber girls took sixth in both medley events as well as the 4 X 100 and 4 X 200 races.

Snell, Kennedy Newell, Reagan Doty and Bruns ran a 5:02.76 in the distance medley and Scherle, Jenna Moody, Sydney Smith and Ellie Godwin completed the sprint medley in 2:02.41.
