Bridges, Hinrichs, 3,200m Relay Medal

The Fillmore Central boys scored 16 points (tie for 16th place overall in the team standings) in Omaha at the 2015 NSAA State Track and Field Championships.  The youthful Panther girls were unable to put a point up on the Omaha Burke Stadium on May 22-23.
FC speedster Xavier Bridges led the Panther point brigade by placing second in the loaded 100-meter Class C final.  Bridges chased home Thayer Central's Simon Wiedel twice in Omaha and clipped the tape in 11.04 seconds to earn runner-up honors.  The FC senior also placed sixth in the long jump with a leap of 21-feet, 3-inches.  Bridges failed to earn a berth in the 200-meter final by 7/100ths of a second.
Panther Jarrod Hinrichs heaved the shot 50-6.5 to take sixth place in the shot put in Omaha.  The FC senior was just an inch from fifth place.
The Panther boys 3,200-meter relay squad of Conrad Schelkopf, Davis Jacobson, Lance Donovan and Leyton Hopken set another School Record in the event at the State Meet by combining to finish the event in 8:19.12.  The effort was good enough to finish seventh in the event­—just four seconds from fourth.

In other events, a messy exchange kept the FC boys 400-meter relay squad from surely earning a substantial medal.  Members of the team included Bridges, Josh Taylor, Nate Rasmussen and Christian Lovan.  All team members except Bridges are underclassmen.  Schelkopf covered the 1,600-meter run in 4:44.40—three seconds off a medal.
For the Panther girls, freshman Jamey Broman was unable to make finals in her three events in Omaha. The FC speedster just missed making the top eight in the 400-meter dash by 4/100ths of a second and posting the ninth fastest time in the qualifying rounds.  Broman also completed the 100-meter dash in Omaha in 13.44 seconds and the 200-meter dash in 27.26 seconds.
FC freshman Alexis Schmidt cranked out a throw of 36-3.50 feet in the shot put preliminaries in Omaha.  Schmidt's throw was the 10th best of the day and she missed the finals by just 8/10ths of an inch.
Panther junior Cori Knapp cleared 8-6 in the Class C girls pole vault and was one foot out of the medals at Burke Stadium.  And, still another FC freshman at State, Panther Grace Jacobson completed the 3,200-meter run in 13:06 in Omaha.
