Cy-Fair/Northwest Roundup: Cy-Fair dominates en route to title
Cy-Fair's Kaleb Moore put on a field events clinic during the District 17-5A Track Meet by winning the high jump, long jump and triple jump.
Moore's special performance helped the Bobcats build a lead during the opening day of the event last week at Cy Ridge High School, and Cy-Fair went on to capture the 17-5A boys title with 141 points to beat out the most-serious challengers Cy Falls (102), Cy Woods (77), defending champ Cy Creek (67) and Cy Lakes (66).
"Cy-Fair had an awesome two days at district," Cy Creek coach Bill Vacek said. "They scored lots of points in field events, and did very well with their relays, too."
Along with Moore's three individual golds, Zach Stevens (discus), Christian Cook (110 hurdles) and Keaton Pace (pole vault) recorded first places for Cy-Fair.
Adding second places were Gerry Guster (300 hurdles), Austin Schankel (3,200) and Jeromy Irwin (shot put), and Nick Hooper (400) and Casey Broderson (800) secured region berths with thirds.
Moore was joined by Cook, JaRod Price and Hooper on the 400 relay.
The Cy Falls boys are taking two district-champion relays to regionals including Tyler Sibley, Brice Christian, Bryce Peters and Armon Owens on the 400 foursome, and Alek Adams, Christian, Shaun Vanderwalt and Darius Moore on the 1,600.
Owens swept gold medals in the 100 and 200, Christian added another first in the 400, and Vanderwalt was second in the 800 to complete the Eagles' region list.
