Class B: Lexington’s Ajack Waikur win two all-class gold medals

It’s pronounced “walker.” More appropriately, it should be “jumper.”

Ajack Waikur, the Lexington senior, won two all-class gold medals Friday afternoon at Burke Stadium. Waikur cleared 6-foot-8 in the high jump, then triple jumped 48-2¾ on his first jump to win that event.

He only took one more jump in the triple jump, landing awkwardly in the pit and hobbling away.

“I think I got a little too much air and came down on my jumping foot a little bit wrong, but it was fine,” he said.

No worries. Later in the day, he qualified for the 300-meter intermediate hurdle finals scheduled for Saturday.

“My coaches wanted to hold me out so we don’t risk anything else. I still have the 300s run,” he said.

He also has the long jump Saturday, which gives him a chance at four gold medals. But medals aren’t as important to him as points.

“Now we have a chance to win Class B state. That’s today’s priority — to get points,” he said.

Even after winning the high jump, the first event of the day, he said it was “pretty exciting, but we still have work to do. We have to finish this out.”

Lexington leads Class B with 36 points after the first five events with McCook second with 24.

Waikur scored 20 with his two jumps and teammate Timothy Ram Nyinguan added eight with a second-place finish in the triple jump, going 45-10½. Alexis Hernandez finished second to Minden’s Aidan Wheelock in the 3,200 for the other eight points.

“My goal since the beginning of the year was to win the (all-class) gold for the triple jump now that we have the chance to win the Class B, that’s the priority now,” Waikur said.

Waikur won the all-class gold medals in the high jump and triple jump, so a long jump title would give him a rare triple crown.

No male athlete in state history has won the all-class golds in all three jumps events in the same year.

Getting that third gold will be the most difficult part of the triple crown. Waikur is seeded fifth in Class B. That event is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. Saturday.

Aurora’s Knust busy with events

Cassidy Knust had a busy day Friday.

The Aurora sophomore was involved in the pole vault and 3,200 relay. She still managed to get two medals on the day.

After helping the Aurora 3,200 relay team finish second at 10:12.2, she tied for third after going with a personal best 10-10. That has Aurora sitting in third with 13.5 points.

“It was a crazy day but I’m happy with how I did,” Knust said.

Here’s how crazy Knust’s day was: There was some clock issues during the start of the 3,200 relay that forced the race to be restarted four times. After solving the clock issues, there was collision that caused two runners to fall at the start so the race had to be restarted for a fifth time.

After the fifth try, meet officials decided to let the runners rest a little bit and have the race start after the Class D boys race.

Knust then headed over to the pole vault to make opening height at 9-0. But as she was on the runway, the gun went off for the start of the 3,200 relay. She cleared opening height with no problem then hurried over to run the third leg of the relay.

“It was pretty hectic but we made it work,” Knust said.

Class C: Sara Reiferath cruises in prelims, while Battle Creek’s Taake wins long jump

Hartington Cedar Catholic’s Sara Reifenrath laid down the gauntlet in Class C, running the fastest preliminary times in the 100, 200 and 400 at the state meet Friday.

Reifenrath cruised to a 100 time of 12.20, equaling her best time this year set at last month’s Norfolk Classic.

“There’s a lot of good competition here,” Reifenrath said. “It helps to have them push me, hoping to better tomorrow.”

Johnson County Central’s Ashlei McDonald leads the Class C 3200 meter run. McDonald won the event with a time of 11:37.67.

Three other area athletes qualified to join Reifenrath in the 100 final: Ashley Ostrand of Emerson-Hubbard/Pender, Emily Loseke of Clarkson/Leigh and Kevona Brown of Atkinson West Holt.

About an hour after the 100, Reifenrath took her lane-four mark for 400-meter perlims, made up the stagger on the four outside lanes before the first curve and then cruised to the finish in 57.19, more than a second ahead of the second-best qualifying time of 58.36 by Isabella Hilger of David City Aquinas.

The Hartington Cedar Catholic junior’s time is within striking distance of the Northeast and North Central Nebraska standard of 56.80 set by Chrystal DeNayer of Valentine in 1991.

Reifenrath then finished off her day by taking the first step in defending her all-state gold medal in the 200. The Trojan junior led the way with a blistering 24.72. And as with the 400, the time was more than a second better than the second-fastest qualifying time. Paige Steinman of Emerson-Hubbard/Pender was the only area runner to place in the 3,200-meter run. The Raptor junior crossed the line in third in a time of 11:45.91,

Wisner-Pilger freshman Kayla Svoboda led a quartet of area hurdlers into the finals of the 100-meter race. She was joined by Rylee Rice of Ainsworth, and the Battle Creek duo of Renee Brummels and BriAnna Zohner.

Rice and North Bend Central’s Hannah Williams were the only area athletes to qualify for the finals of the 300-meter low hurdles.

Class C: Move over, Superior’s Kalynn Meyer tops state’s discus record and No. 1 national mark

Before she entered the discus venue Friday at Burke Stadium, tales of Kalynn Meyer’s warmup performance already were circulating.

The first throw by the junior from Superior traveled 140 feet. It was a simple power throw to warm up her arm. The spins and leg placements were looking good, so anticipation was growing.

Things only got better — way better — as Meyer topped the all-time state meet record three times, finishing with a best throw of 176-8 to win the all-class gold medal for the third consecutive year.

That throw also moved the Nebraska volleyball recruit to No. 1 on the national leaders lists, according to Track and Field News and

This year, Meyer didn’t require as much assistance from father/coach Andy Meyer. As Kalynn has matured through three seasons, she prefers that dad watch from a spot not so close to the ring.

“It’s just to the point where I know what I need to do and there’s nothing he can tell me that will help that I’m not already thinking myself,” she said. “I know what needs to be done.”

There was nothing rebellious or boastful about that statement. Dad agrees with it.

“The difference between Kalynn this year and last year is she knows what she needs to do to throw farther,” Andy Meyer said. “I don’t have to tell her. She knows it. I’ve tried to leave her alone a little more and let her figure things out, and she has. In fact, I’ve told her that.

“She’s done a great job of that for the last month. The first part of the season she struggled a little bit, but she’s figured it out here in the last five meets, and she’s done it on her own.”

Dad was in his usual spot — the western-most corner of the coaches area near the discus ring — but he moved after Kalynn’s fourth throw went awry. Things were OK during the first three throws, though.

She opened with a 152-2 before unleashing her first record of 171-5, a throw nearly 7 feet farther than the previous meet best.

Kalynn’s third throw went beyond her winning throw but didn’t count because of a foot foul in the ring. Still, she left the ring smiling. She knew a bigger throw was possible heading to the final.

One meet official said that throw “went beyond 180,” and Andy Meyer said he was told it was roughly 181 feet. Then came Kalynn’s worst throw of the series, a sector foul on her first attempt of the final.

Daughter and dad’s eyes never met as Kalynn left the ring to head for her blanket near a couple of soccer goals to think about what went wrong.

“She was rushing it in the back of the ring,” Andy Meyer said. “She wasn’t setting herself up in the back of the ring, and when she does that she gets ahead with her upper body.”

Dad then moved down the sector, making it more difficult for Kalynn to see him. Andy said the last half-dozen meets he’s been staying away from the ring, viewing Kalynn’s throws from farther away.

Kalynn laughed when told of her father’s response.

“Honestly, no he hasn’t,” Kalynn said. “It’s ironic. I usually throw my best when he’s not around the ring. He was kind of close, (but) he was a little farther down. Maybe if he was all the way out there, I would have thrown a little farther.”

Her fifth throw was a 172-0 before she landed the record-setter. Kalynn said getting closer to 180 feet on that final throw was exhilarating.

“It was relieving,” she said. “I had the goal to get that this year. That second throw passed that, and I was really happy for that. I was more relaxed. I didn’t have anything to worry about on those last throws.”

Meyer is the leading qualifier in Saturday’s Class C shot put, which is scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.

Wind direction won’t be an issue for the shot, but it was for the discus. Andy Meyer said Friday’s setting wasn’t ideal, which made Kalynn’s performance that much more impressive.

The wind was blowing from the northeast, and if had been coming from the southwest, Dad is convinced Kalynn’s best throws would have been in the mid-180s.

Andy Meyer knows what he’s talking about. He has owned the state all-class record the past 30 years and went on to be a three-time Big Eight discus champ for Nebraska.

“She’s been knocking on the door all season,” he said. “The latter half of this season she’s been working on getting a big throw, and things have to be just right.”

Colleges want Meyer to give track a whirl

Superior junior steadfast in commitment to volleyball; NU’s Cook says she can compete in discus, too

Though Meyer has been committed for more than 18 months to play volleyball at Nebraska, her successful track and field season has led Division I coaches to gauge her interest in that sport.

Among the early suitors are Stanford, Texas A&M and Kansas. Meyer set the all-class state meet record in the discus Friday with her winning throw of 176 feet, 8 inches. The junior from Superior will also compete in the Class C shot put beginning at 8:30 a.m. Saturday.

While volleyball remains her primary collegiate sport, Meyer said she’s interested in throwing the discus for the Huskers once the volleyball spring season concludes in mid-April.

Meyer’s father, Andy, who owns the state discus record of 203-6 set in 1989, said Nebraska volleyball coach John Cook already has given his blessing to Kalynn to give the event a try.

“Coach Cook has told her that she could,” Meyer said. “As of last year, she didn’t have that much interest in throwing in college.”

Then there’s the chance to compete in the 2020 Olympic Trials in Walnut, California. The qualifying standards for the Trials have yet to be announced, but the discus standard for the 2016 Trials was 187-0.

“It would be hard not to (try that), but it would be up to her,” Andy Meyer said. “She is getting a lot of attention from colleges around the country for throwing.”

Kalynn Meyer said the Trials present an intriguing challenge.

“It’s something I haven’t really thought much about,” she said. “It’s a possibility. Just to go see what I can do against the all-timers.”

Meyer’s record throw puts her 13 inches behind her sister Alex, who is a senior at Nebraska and is ranked No. 34 on the Division I leaders list this season. Alex was at Burke Stadium on Friday to watch Kalynn and younger sister Shayla, who finished fifth with a throw of 130-10.

Lincoln High’s Darius Luff’s fall may result in two gold medals

Darius Luff rolled his way from an embarrassing spot into what could be a double-gold medal Saturday in the hurdles at the state track meet.

The Lincoln High senior fell while clearing the fifth hurdle in the preliminaries of the 300 intermediates at Burke Stadium. He somersaulted to his feet, staying in his lane to avoid a DQ, and won his heat.

But the spill cost him the coveted Lane 4 for the qualifying leader Saturday. He’ll be in Lane 7.

What happened was a first for Luff in his prep career.

“I always have problems with that hurdle,” he said. “I tried to get my trail leg up higher and sooner. I guess I just fell. I don’t remember much. I just fell and got back up. I had to do what I could to win.”

Luff came close to his state-record time in the 110 highs with a 13.85 — three-hundredths of a second from last week’s 13.82 at districts. He said that shows him he has things to clean up before the final.

Given the forecast for afternoon thunderstorms, it could be a long Saturday finish at Burke. The last four track finals are the 1,600, the 300 hurdles, the 200 and the 1,600 relay. The last event takes about two hours to complete as there are two heats in each of the four classes, girls and boys.

Friday’s highlights included reigning high school girls athlete of the year Kalynn Meyer of Superior improving her nation-leading mark in the discus to 176-8. The junior, who’s committed to Nebraska for volleyball, broke the meet record three times. Her best mark was on her last of three attempts.

Omaha Creighton Prep ran the fifth-fastest boys 3,200-meter relay in state history. The Junior Jays’ foursome of Leo Burns, Luke Dickas, Michael Buckley and Grant West won Class A in 7:48.89, more than two seconds ahead of season leader Fremont. The Tigers also joined the all-time chart at No. 9 with their 7:51.16.

Fremont’s girls set a school record in the 3,200 relay as Taylor McCabe, Avery Decker, Myia Johnson and Elli Dahl won in 9:24.53. Dahl followed by outkicking Lindsey Blehm of Lincoln Southwest for the 3,200 gold.

Ajack Waikur of Class B Lexington matched Dahl’s double gold opening day. The senior won the high jump at 6-8 and the triple jump at 48-2¾.

Omaha Marian sophomore Lauren Harris entered the all-time girls 400 chart at No. 10 with her prelim time of 55.93.

Husker recruit Kevin Shubert of Millard North repeated as Class A boys shot put champion at 62-3¾. Madison Smith of Lexington was girls gold medalist in the long jump at 19-1. Tyler Boyle of Lincoln Southwest was the boys 3,200 gold medalist.

The meet started on schedule at 9 a.m. despite early-morning thundershowers. One lightning flash was seen east of the stadium at 8:15 a.m. but warmups continued.

A malfunctioning timing system became a sticky situation for the meet early in the afternoon session for Classes B and D. After three aborted starts and a fourth stoppage for incidental contact in the Class B girls 3,200 relay, the relay teams were sent off the track to rest and the Class B boys 3,200 relay went to the blocks.

Jay Bellar, the NSAA’s new executive director, said the starter’s gun wasn’t syncing with the timing system. Results for the 3,200 relay, and the preliminaries for the high hurdles and 100 meters, were shown in tenths of a second.

The meet then stopped for more than 20 minutes. Meet Director Nate Neuhaus of the NSAA said during the delay that it seemed like the meet was being rushed along to make up for time “and we want to make sure everything is being done correctly.”

The unplanned break let the timing crew go to backup cameras to obtain electronic times for some of the affected events.

A technicality gets in Dylan Kautz’s way of replacing his own state record

A technicality was all that kept Dylan Kautz from replacing his own state record.

The Norfolk Catholic senior would have bettered his Class C 100-meter record when he sprinted down the front stretch in 10.63 seconds Friday after he ran a 10.70 a year ago. It was the fastest qualifying time to reach the Saturday’s 12:30 p.m. final.

“I’m happy with it,” Kautz said. “I got into the finals tomorrow, and that’s all you can ask for.”

But a reading of 2.4 meters on the wind gauge — NFHS regulations require a reading below 2.0 — meant it won’t count for a state record. And the next two class prelims that followed were well below 2.0.

The wind struck again a few hours later for Kautz in the 200 preliminaries. He won his heat in 21.77 seconds, the fastest qualifying time that appeared to break the previous state and meet record of 21.78 set in 2001 by Fort Calhoun’s Cole Biodrowski. But the wind gauge was at 2.3.

Also for the Knights, senior Ethan Piper — a Husker football recruit — took home a runner-up finish in the shot put. His best throw came in at 55 feet, 3 ½ inches.

Kautz also holds a record in football, with the 11-man mark of 7,580 rushing yards in four seasons. As a senior, he rushed for 2,737 yards and scored 47 touchdowns — 45 on the ground — in 13 games. Already a three-time state champion in the 100 and 200, Kautz took Friday’s news in stride.

“There’s nothing you can do about it,” he said. “Just gotta let it go past and focus on your next race.”

In the next breath, he emphasized what needed to come next.

“If you don’t focus, you don’t perform well,” he said.

A refreshing addition

A new option for state track fans to get refreshments during the competition was unveiled Friday.

Cold bottles of water and soda were being hawked by vendors in the seats on the west side of Burke Stadium.

For the first time since the meet has been at Burke, fans didn’t have to leave their seats to get a beverage.

Making most of shot at state

When Pleasanton’s Riley Racicky threw 44 feet in the shot put at the first meet this year, he thought his hopes of winning a gold medal at state were a pipe dream.

Friday, his pipes delivered a throw of 53 feet, 2½ inches — good enough for the Class D gold.

“I’m pretty excited. I don’t think anybody (from Pleasanton) has won a gold medal down here that I know of. I could be wrong about that,” he said. “It feels pretty good being the first I know about, and if I’m not the first, I feel great about myself for throwing that.”

Pleasanton coach Randy Bauer said Racicky is not the first, but he can be forgiven for not knowing that. No Bulldog has brought home a gold medal since 1968, a gap of 51 years.

He almost needed to provide it to meet officials as proof because a typographical error put Racicky in 13th place with a 43-foot throw.

“They had it messed up. I was freaking out about that,” Racicky said.

Spectator participation

The final equipment-related delay came before the Class D girls 200-meter prelims. It lasted 18 minutes, but during the final hiatus someone started piping music through the Burke Stadium speakers.

When Jefferson Starship’s “Jane,” a 1979 song, began to play, fans in the east stands broke out their cellphones, turned on their flashlights and began waving them back-and-forth, concert style.

Fans in the west stands soon followed, and Burke Stadium was lit a bit brighter for five minutes. No butane lighters, which is what was used at Starship and other concerts four decades ago.

Friday’s results from the Nebraska high school state track and field meet.
