Track notebook: Trego's Reeder going to FHSU

ELLIS -- WaKeeney-Trego Community High School senior Jerris Reeder has been one of the area's top sprinters and triple jumpers since she transferred to the Golden Eagle program her sophomore year. Reeder knew she wanted to do track and field in college and said Fort Hays State University "seemed like the ideal place."

Reeder talked with Tiger coach Dennis Weber, who gave her a $1,000 scholarship. If Reeder hits certain marks during the year, that scholarship will escalate.

Reeder opened her season last Tuesday at the Ellis Invitational. She couldn't triple jump, an event she took fifth and sixth at the Class 2A state meet the last two years, because of a foot injury. Reeder is hoping to jump at this week's Redmen Relays in Smith Center.

Reeder did take fourth in the long jump with a leap of 15 feet, 0.5 inch. She has gone over 16 feet in her career. Last year at Ness City, Reeder exceeded 17 feet in the long jump, but scratched by slim margins.

"Long jump, I struggled a little bit, but I haven't jumped at all," Reeder said.

Reeder considered running the 800 meters this spring, so she could strive for one of the marks that coach Weber gave her. She tried a trial run in practice and needed to improve by 20 seconds.

However, Reeder might decide to stay on the 400 relay, an event the Golden Eagles placed 11th at state in last year. Trego ran 53.46 at state last year and returned all four runners, Reeder, senior Bailee Fritts, sophomore Allyson Denning and junior Payton Nowlin. Trego, despite some shaky handoffs, ran 54.24 to win at Ellis. Reeder ran the second leg, the longest leg for Trego.

"The 4x1 might be the relay that I stay in, because I only wanted to do one relay," Reeder said.

Reed tries 800

Quinter senior Missy Reed has gone to state in the triple jump, 100 hurdles and 400 and 1,600 relays. The Bulldogs put together strong relays with Reed, Heather Kuntz, Kayla Zerr and Sadie Corwin the last two years. However, Kuntz and Zerr graduated and Corwin is hurt with an arm injury. Reed is looking for different events. Teammates asked her to run the 3,200 meter relay, but Reed declined.

"Some of the girls have bugged me about running the 4x8 and that's right before my 100 hurdles, so I told them no," she said.

Reed tried the 800 at Ellis. She ran 2:47.07 to win Ellis, a time that likely won't qualify for state, but was a good opening experience for Reed.

"I just want to try something new, since I can't do the relays," Reed said. "My goal is to take something new to state this year that I have never taken. This is my first time in a meet to run, and I guess it went pretty well."

Reed, who finished seventh in the hurdles last year in Class 1A, opened the season with a 17.1 to win the hurdles at Ellis. She has run 16.1 in her career and ran 16.76 with fully automatic timing at state last spring.

"It felt pretty good," Reed said. "It will definitely feel better on a warm day. Normally, I can three-step my first hurdle, and I had a hard time getting that in."

Wohler with brace

Victoria senior Jublain Wohler, one of the top 1A distance runners, wore a knee brace at Ellis. Wohler first suffered the injury in basketball. He went to the trainer and thought it might be his meniscus.

Then, he went to a sports chiropractor, who noticed several problems.

"Bones were all out of place," he said. "My kneecap was on the whole right side of my knee, and my bones were all twisted in. She was like, 'Wow, what the heck did you do to your knee?' "

The sports chiropractor fixed Wohler's knee, but then he experienced problems at the season-opening Fort Hays State University meet. Wohler had some ankle, knee, lower back and neck pain. He ended up getting a brace and some "really good" in-soles and some BioFreeze to help lessen the pain.

He ran 10:50 in the 3,200-meter run at Fort Hays and to win 10:57 at Ellis. He ran the first mile in 5:10 and then slowed down.

"Cold had quite a bit to do with that," Wohler said.

Wohler's best time is 10:41, five seconds off the school record. He was a little sore after Ellis, but then the pain subsided.

"It's been a really good start," Wohler said. "...I should be getting here in the next few weeks, I hope at least."
