It's no secret Lingleville High School is enjoying one of its best years of athletics in school history.

That momentum has carried over into track and field.

Joe Michael Sanchez placed first in three individual events and was part of Lingleville's first place 4x400m relay team at a recent meet in Gordon, helping the Cardinals to 92 points and second place in the team standings.

The Cards were just eight points behind meet champ Perrin.

Sanchez won the 100m in 12.02 seconds, the 400m in 53.30 seconds and the triple jump at 38 feet, 1 inch.

The senior - who just missed medaling at regionals in powerlifting this spring - was also part of the Cards' mile relay club that stopped the clock in 4 minutes, 22.83 seconds. Joining him for the event were Tucker Click, Nery Suarez and Michael Conatser.

Lingleville's other relay teams were also strong as Chris Carter, Robert VanKranenburg, Suarez and Click teamed up to finish third in the 4x200m (1:45.35) and fifth in the 4x100m (49.42 seconds).

Distance running was also a strong suit for the Cards, as Edwin Chacon was third in the 3,200m (12:56) and fifth in the 1,600m (5:55.97), where he was joined by teammate Emilio Luna in sixth (6:06.98).

Click finished sixth in the 200m in 26.17 ticks.

Other field event scoring came from VanKranenburg, who finished fourth in both the long jump (17-1-1/2) and the high jump (5-0), Carter, who was fifth in the high jump (5-0), and Martin Vasquez, who was fifth in the shot put (37-7-1/2).

Lingleville's girls were also in Gordon, finishing seventh with 30 points.

Maranda Conatser had the biggest day, finishing in a second-place tie in the high jump at 4-2, and in fourth in the 400m (1:15.51) while also running one leg of the Lady Cards' 4x100m relay team that finished third in 1:07.62.

Joining Conatser on the sprint relay were Tori Johnson, Kelly Oldengarm and Kristin Nugen.

Nugen was fifth in the 400m (1:19.40) while Oldengarm was sixth in the 800m (3:01.73).

Shylee Smith finished fourth in the discus with a best throw of 62-4.
