Culver track team led by Lewis, Alley
Culver High's Nate Lewis and Katelyn Alley continued to lead their Bulldog track and field teammates when earning points in track and field competition on Saturday. But the pair had more company than in some earlier events as they ran, jumped and threw in the Burns Invitational, dominated by Sisters.
Lewis posted two seconds for Culver's boys to ignite a fourth-place showing for the Bulldogs.
Culver's girls finished fifth, sparked Alley's seconds in both the 400 and 800 meters.
Lewis was second in both the 400 meters and the high jump for Culver, despite being a little off his best efforts of this season. A 5-10 high jump was only Lewis's second or third best height of the young season. His 51.69 in the 400 also left Lewis trailing his best showing of the season so far in that event.
Other Bulldogs collected second, thirds and fourths. Maury Rhoan ran the 200 meters in 24.9 seconds to earn Culver a second and added a third in the 100, with his 12.18.
James Moyses collected a second for Culver with his 3,000-meter run time of 11:10.
Nick Hagman turned in another two sports in two days showing for Culver as he scored points for the Bulldogs in Burns less than 24 hours after he pitched Culver to a baseball win. Hagman earned fourth in both the 800, in 2:13.9, plus the 300 hurdles, in 49.5. Its quartets added to Culver's totals in both the 400 relay and the 1,600 relay.
Joining Katelyn Alley in scoring for Culver at Burns was a combination of Crystal Alley, in the shot put, and Val Calvin, in the pole vault.
While Katelyn Alley added a fifth in the 300 hurdles to her seconds, Calvin raced to fifth in the 100, in 14.2, before clearing 6-0 for a fifth in the pole vault. Crystal Alley earned Culver a few more of its points with a 27-4.75 shot put that also placed fifth.
