Clipper boys dominate in Tipton

By Chris Umscheid
North Liberty Leader
TIPTON– It was supposed to be a much bigger meet. The Tipton co-ed meet, the second of the season, is often a chance for track and field teams with rain-outs to make-up events and get a full season in. However, this spring’s weather pattern has led to few if any postponements or cancellations.
So the field was a little thin.
Tony Brack’s Clear Creek Amana (CCA) boys’ track and field team capitalized on the situation and ended up dominating several events in particular and the meet in general. CCA put up a new school record of 217 team points to win the meet and lead the four-team field.
First place finishes were claimed by Caleb Sedlacek in the 800-meter run (2:09.35), Alec Linnenbrink in the 110-meter high hurdles, Jack Murray in the mile, Tyler Cooling won the discus with a throw of 122 ft., 3 inches, and Dillon Villhauer won in the high jump with a 6 ft. jump. John Nzombo, Nash Stopko, Kam Kahler and Villhauer ran the 4x100-meter relay to victory in 46.35, while Villhauer, Stopko, Tony Pederson and Sedlacek took the 4x200-meter relay with a time of 1:34.03. Linnenbrink, Aaron Campbell, Tanner Bandy and Villhauer also found victory in the shuttle hurdle relay, blazing well ahead of the rest of the competition.
