Led by a pair of golds in the 4x400- and 4x800-meter relays, the Garden City High School boys track and field team edged the field in the Class 6A regional track and field meet on Friday evening in Wichita.

The Buffaloes scored 110 points, edging second-place Dodge City’s 82. In the process, the Buffs qualified 11 athletes for state.

On the girls side, the Buffs finished in fourth with 90 points, just a half-point behind Derby. Hutchinson won with 135.5 points and Dodge City took second with 109.5.

The girls got a first-place finish from Taylor Savolt in the 300-meter hurdles in 48.43 seconds, and from the 4x800-meter relay. They qualified nine for state.

On the boys’ side, Nathaniel Hubbard won the 400 meters in 52.00, just in front of Liberal’s Joshua Arafol (52.39) and teammate Jeremy Garcia (52.93).

Angel Ayala won the 1,600-meter run in 4:48.48 and Alex Depaz won the pole vault with a mark of 12-09.00. Teammate Josh Kansas was just behind with a 12-03.00 mark for second place — both were personal records.

Also qualifying for the Buffs was Javyn Contreras in the 800, Mario Bustillos in the 1,600 and the 3,200, Trey Nuzum in the discus, Terrell Elliott in the shot put and Jarrod Springston in the triple jump.

Savolt led the way for the girls, getting a trio of second-place finishes after her first in the 300 hurdles. She took second in the 100 hurdles (15.73) — setting a personal record in the preliminaries (15.41) — and the long jump (17-00.50) and triple jump (36-09.00).
