Montrose Indians Track and field season is coming to an end of a strong season with many individuals and relay teams being ranked top 18 which would qualify them for the 2022 CHSAA Track and Field Championships that will take place at Lakewood Colorado May 19th and will end May 21st.

The Montrose Indians Girls 4×200 relay team (Taylor Foster, Madison Lucero, Olivia Renfrow and Sarah Mcgary) Mcgary is also looking to make a push in long jump as she is ranked 16th with a 16’ 8.00”

The Individuals that as of right now are qualified for state for the boys are Amaris Mora in the 100 and 200 meter dash, Isaac Renfrow in the 300 meter hurdles, the Montrose 4×100 and 4×200 relay team (Amaris Mora, Austin Zimmer, Alonzo Leiba, and Junior Rodriguez),the 4×400 relay team (Jonas Graff, Bohden Walchle, Zack Browning, and Alonzo Leiba) Trevor Hill and Jaxxon Tosi are also qualified for shot put.

“We just got to do us, if we keep running like how we are we should be able to place,” Rodriguez said.

Tosi right now is 18th in the state behind his teammate Hill that is ranked 9th.

“I would be around top 10 right now if it wasn’t for that one scratch I had earlier in the season, but if I qualify for state I’m going to do my best to get that one good throw and place highly,” Tosi said.

Graff, a member of the 4×400 relay team said “We might be a couple seconds off from being top 10 but every team has their bad days and when some of those teams have a bad day at state we will capitalize on it.”

This Track season has been a memorable one for the Indians qualifying over 10 individuals but freshman Sienna Mora is already looking forward to her future years in track.

“My track experience this year was fun and went pretty good getting first place a couple of time for triple jump, but next year I’m going to be training earlier, going to be in better shape, and be more prepared,” Sienna said.
