WICHITA – Plainville High School senior Dalton Werner had to juggle his schedule between the 200-meter preliminaries and long jump on Friday during Day 1 of the Class 2A state track and field meet at Wichita State University's Cessna Stadium.

Werner, the No. 1 seed entering the long jump competition, was supposed to be the last jumper in an event starting at 11:30 a.m. Werner expected to run the prelims at 12:05 a.m. He was hoping to get a few jumps in before prelims.

Instead, Werner had just one attempt before he had to go run.

“I was really worried after that 200,” Werner said. “Tired.”

Werner lept 21 feet, 7.5 inches on his first attempt to qualify for finals. After he passed two attempts, he was in second entering finals. Despite lacking energy, Werner delivered a jump of 22-2.25 on his first jump of finals. He won the event over Solomon senior Josh Burdine, who went 22 feet.

“Before my last jump, I sat down and then I stood up, and I just kind of felt dead,” Werner said.

Still, Werner solidified himself as one of the most dominant long jumpers in Kansas history. Werner finished second, first, and first in his final three years. Only three athletes, Hillsboro’s Jerry Harder (1955-57), Liberal’s Martin Lewis (1990, 92-93) and Salina Central’s Jake Sharp (2004-06) have ever won three long jump championships in their careers.

“I am just relieved,” Werner said.

Heim collects triple jump

Hoxie sophomore Carly Heim went 36-2.25 in the triple jump at the Class 1A Hays Regional last week. It marked a new personal best and the classification’s best mark this year. On her third jump of state, Heim went 36-5, a jump that surprised her, and earned the first individual title of her career.

“It really means a lot,” Heim said. “It’s just amazing. I am just speechless.”

Last year, Heim scratched out of the triple jump to help Hoxie win the 3,200-meter relay. This spring, Heim qualified as the top seed in long jump and triple jump.

“There is a little nerves, just being here for the first time jumping, tripling anyway,” she said.

Heim bested the entire field by eight inches.

“I hit the board,” Heim said. “My phases were better than they have been.”

Dexter senior Briley Ware finished second, while Dighton junior Leslie Speer, the defending champion, was third and Baileyville B&B Haley Strathman was fourth. Strathman was the lone 1A triple jumper who went farther than Heim before state.

“It’s awesome,” Heim said. “This whole day is just a blessing, and it’s amazing.”

Silver and bronze

Ellis freshman Alexcia Deutscher finished second in the long jump (16-6.25). She was in first place until the final round, when Meade sophomore Tarah Weins went 16-10.5. Deutscher finished 12th in the high jump at 4-8. … Phillipsburg senior Sean Newlan finished second in the Class 3A discus for the second straight year with a throw of 157-8, behind Caney-Caney Valley sophomore Levi Wyrick (161-7). … Oberlin sophomore Demi Murray was second in the 2A javelin (127-10). Bennington’s Madison Wolf won the event in 137-9. ... Wallace County freshman Levi Schemm was second in the 1A high jump at 6-2, four inches behind Madison's Grady Derryberry. … Ellis senior Megan Honas was third in the discus at 114-11, her second state medal and best finish of her career.
