Central Plains’ Barton captures high jump

Relay team runs to thirdplace in Class 2A State competition at Wichita

 

By the I-R Staff

 

Alex Barton plans to attend Sterling College this fall on a basketball scholarship. But officials there also expect him to participate in track. That only makes sense after a senior year at Central Plains High School that included championships in both sports.

This spring, the Oilers captured their first Class 2A basketball championship ever. Then, this past week, Barton cleared 6-foot-6 to capture the 2A State high jump gold medal. The recognition came at the State track and field meet at Cessna Stadium in Wichita. In an interview after the meet, Barton said he knew going into the meet he had the highest jump of anyone in 2A. But he also knew unexpected things can happen at State. “I just knew I had to go out and do my best,” Barton said. His jump tied the 6-foot-6 personal best he reached at Ellinwood during the regular season.

Two — Remington Cravens and Darrell Gustin — came home with first place gold medals. Ellsworth also was represented by sophomore Laykin Tenbrink, who placed ninth in girls’ Class 3A high jump with a leap of 5-02.

Gustin wins discus for 3A state championship at Wichita

By the I-R Staff

 

Ellsworth’s Darrell Gustin capped off his high school career Saturday by winning a gold medal in discus at the State 3A Track and Field Championships at Wichita. Gustin, who participated in graduation ceremonies earlier in the week, threw a personal best of 154 feet.

The performance followed competition at the April 27 Beloit Relays, when Gustin tossed the discus 142’1 and the March 29 Fort Hays State University meet when he ended the day throwing the discus 131’2. Trailing Gustin in second place was Jaylen Pickle of Cimarron with a throw of 147’10.
