North Tahoe, Truckee track members return from State

Provided to the SunNorth Tahoe's Amy Terzian helps lead her 4 x 200 relay team to a third-place finish during the Nevada State Track and Field Championship in Las Vegas this past weekend.

North Tahoe and Truckee high track members who placed fifth or better in the Northern Nevada 3A Championship on May 11-12 traveled to Las Vegas to represent their schools in the Nevada State Track and Field Championship this past Friday and Saturday.

Truckee’s Micah Silver, a sophomore, and Sean Wilson, a senior, brought home the only gold medals from the two-day meet, with Silver winning the 3,200-meter run (two-mile) in 10:08.63 and Wilson taking first in the 800 in 2:01.56.

Wilson posted a winning time of 2:01.56 to edge North Tahoe’s Scott Smelser, who placed second in 2:03.04.

Silver’s win came in dominant fashion, as he finished more than 13 seconds ahead of Boulder City’s Matt Lundgren (10:22.18).

After winning both the 1,600 (one mile) and the 3,200 at regionals the week prior, Silver placed runner-up to Lowry’s Vance Orr in the 1,600. Silver finished in 4:40.79 to Orr’s 4:40.14.

“In the mile (on Friday) I expected to win, but I lost,” Silver said. “So in the two-mile (on Saturday) I was definitely going to win, so I really went for it. It felt really good to win.”

North Tahoe’s James Laughlin placed second in shot put to Dayton’s Bill Savran with a throw of 47-feet-11.5-inches. Savran won with a toss of 48-feet-6-inches.

Truckee’s 4 x 800 relay team of Kyle Britto, Vince Shaffer, Max Salinger and Wilson placed second behind Spring Creek.
