Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. — The 2016 Track and Field season at Alder Creek Middle School (ACMS) was a very successful one. The time and effort the athletes put into practice definitely showed at the TAH-NEVA Championships held at Carson High on May 18, 2016.

At day’s end, the seventh and eighth grade girls and seventh grade boys teams all took home first-place trophies.

Seventh-grader Alia Sinoff took first in the 100- and 200-meter dashes. Lauren Tanner, Carly Davis and Kaelin Woodruff finished first, second and third, respectively, in both the 800 and 1600 runs.

Sixth-graders Jasmine Wood and Jasmine Harris placed first and second in the triple jump. Both ACMS girls relay teams sped to first place in the 4×100 and 4×400 while the boys took second in their respective relays.

Seventh-graders Ethan Flynn and Cody Flynn took first and third, respectively, in the 1600.

The eighth grade girls were also a force to be reckoned with, as Britta Winans claimed first in the 400 and Emily Monson nabbed first in the 800. Izzy Terrazas added a second-place finish in the 3200 run and Deanna Sunnergren took third in the 400.

Eighth grade boys showed off their teamwork skills with their 4×400 relay team — comprised of Hayden Sumner, Nate Bromley, Montana Montgomery and Alan Tester — finishing three seconds ahead of second place for the decisive victory.

Montana Montgomery also set a league record with a blazing 1600 run in 5 minutes, 8.55 seconds.
