Tigers roll to Harold Scott championship

LINCOLN - The Fremont High School boys track team swept the top three spots in the 3,200-meter run and cruised to the team title of the Harold Scott Invitational Thursday at Lincoln High School.

The Tigers scored 120 points - 26 points more than second-place Lincoln Pius X.

Fremont garnered three firsts with four seconds and five thirds in the meet which scores out to the top eight places.

It was a good day all around, FHS coach Dave Sellon said. We spread some points around at a big meet with a good smattering of teams from both Omaha and Lincoln. I was proud of the team's efforts.

Cory Poehling won the 3,200 in 9:56.81. Steven Wilson was second in 10:05.57 while Mason Brown was third in 10:08.84 - about 12 seconds better than his personal record.

They took the pace out a little slow but because of the weather conditions it was more of a strategic race rather than going out and racing for time, Sellon said.

Also placing first for FHS were Ryan Thayer in the discus with a mark of 150-4 and the 3,200-meter relay team of Trevor Wiegert, Britt Jensen, Blake Peterson and Danny Aldaba. They won with a time of 8:08.36 which will take over the top spot in the state.

Fremont finished 2-3-4 in the 1,600-meter run behind Britt Jensen's second place with a personal record of 4:25.09. Arturo Garcia was third and Blake Peterson was fourth.

Garcia's time of 4:31.47 was just two tenths of a second off of Aldaba's freshman record. Peterson's 4:31.75 was also a personal record.

Tyler Soderberg placed second in the 800 with a time of 1:58.56 and Aldaba was third in 1:59.08.

Roger Brohimer placed third in the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdles. Braxton Voss finished second in the 300s. Voss also earned sixth place in the 400 with a season-best time of 51.71.
