Rigby Invite provides solid competition despite blustery weather

RIGBY — While the inside lanes often produce the victors in sprints and hurdles finals at track meets, occasionally someone emerges from an outside lane to snag the win.

Such was the case for Madison’s Hunter Madsen in the varsity boys 110-meter hurdles finals Saturday afternoon at the annual Rigby Invitational.

Running in lane two, the Madison senior established a solid lead early before hitting a hurdle farther down the stretch. He maintained control of himself and pushed through to the win in 16.26 seconds, squinting his eyes against the driving rain.

“I didn’t panic,” Madsen said of the hurdle collision. “I actually hit hurdles in my last two races. I was a little nervous going in. My coach just told me to jump a little higher.”

Madsen also competed in high jump and triple jump in blustery, wet conditions Saturday. The rain fell steadily by his hurdles final, prompting athletes to rub their hands together and jump up and down to stay loose before getting set in the blocks.

“A lot of it for me is to make sure I stay warmed up and am not just standing still,” Madsen said.

He said his favorite event ‘depends’ on the meet, but he has advanced to state in every event at different points throughout his Madison career. His personal best for 110 hurdles is 15.93, which he said he aspires to lower significantly.

“Low 15s would be nice,” Madsen said. “I’d really like to get into the 14.9s.”

Also claiming a hurdles win in blustery conditions was Skyline junior Breanne Herrmann, who won the varsity girls 300 hurdles in 47.34 to complete a 1-2 Skyline finish with teammate Macy Olson. Those finals occurred less than 30 minutes after she won the varsity girls 400 in 1:01.88.

Herrmann also competes in the 800, creating an unusual combination of events and requiring her to make quick turnarounds at meets she competes in all three. At a typical two-day meet, the 800 is two events after the 400 and the 300 hurdles are two events after the 800.

Although she described her typical meet schedule as ‘inconvenient,’ she said doing intervals in practice has allowed her to prepare for such quick turnarounds.

“I’ve hurdled since I was in seventh grade,” Herrmann said. “I’ve always been a sprinter, but since cross-country in middle school, I’ve gotten better in distance. I thought I’d try the 800. It’s gone well.”

A two-time 400 and 300 hurdles state qualifier, Herrmann ran a personal best 46.19 to take second in the Boise Relays elite finals last weekend. Sub-46 is her next target.

“I’ve been wanting to do that for a while,” Herrmann said. “I also really want to break 59 for the 400.”

Coming away with two wins of her own Saturday was Bonneville junior Sade Williams, who won the varsity girls 200 in 27.76 and anchored the Bees to a 4×100 win in 51.55 to go with third place in a tightly contested 100 finals.

A state track qualifier in both her previous seasons, Williams said she aspires to run 12.5 for the 100, 25.8 for the 200 and 50 for the 4×100. She said the 4×100 is ‘definitely’ her favorite event.

“It’s a better feeling when you win because you’re winning as a team,” Williams said.

Like several other local track athletes, Williams is a multisport athlete with no true offseason. This year has been particularly eventful, as she was part of Bonneville’s second consecutive 5A state champion volleyball team and contributed to Bonneville’s first girls basketball postseason appearance in eight years. She said she has competed against several of the same track athletes over the years, and the community it has created is what she enjoys most.

“I like the social part of it,” Williams said. “You get to know a lot of people you wouldn’t meet otherwise if you didn’t do track.”
