Gunlikson wins boys 200, 300 hurdles

After Thursday’s performance at Park High School, Big Timber sophomore Casey Gunlikson continues to dominate the 200-meter sprint against opponents from around the state. So far, Gunlikson has earned gold in the event at three of the last four meets this season for the Herders. 

The Herder’s top-flight sprinter put on another PR-shattering performance after cruising to victories in both the 200-meters at 24.04 seconds and the 300 hurdles at 42.58 seconds on Thursday afternoon at the Ranger Invitational at McLeod Field in Livingston.

In the triple jump, Gunlikson nipped at the heels of Shields Valley senior Brock Peterson, but fell just shy to take second behind Peterson with a leap of 39-feet and five-inches. Peterson won with a distance of 40-01.50. Gunlikson was also third in the 100 with a new personal best at 11.02-seconds for the Herders, outpaced by Fergus senior Haiden Collins at 10.68 and Park High’s Colin Marks at 10.81.

Big Timber freshman Braedon Stosich had a PR in the triple jump to finish ninth after a distance of 35-05, and sophomore teammate Orry Carroccia placed just behind Stosich at tenth with a distance of 34-09 for the Herders. Stosich went on to take fifth place in the 110-hurdles event at 20.04 

The Herders’ boys team went on to finish fifth on Thursday with 37 points. Fergus won the boys meet with 133 points, ahead of Whitehall at 85 points, Manhattan Christian (69) and Ennis (58).
