Trevor Lewis caught fire.

The sophomore at Joseph helped heat up his high school's track. Lewis bested an 800-meter run April 30 at the Jo-Hi Invitational. The following afternoon, at Grant Union High, he was second in both the 400 and the 200. His time in the 200, 23.40 seconds, was his fastest ever. Several teammates also set personal records during a chilly weekend.

"We've been working in this all week," said sophomore Anthony Smallen, who made his longest discus throw at 115 feet and 4 inches. "When I got up this morning, there was a tiny bit of snow falling. I had to smile. We're used to it. It could be an advantage for us."

The boys had a number of strong performances. Their relay team, in the 1,600-meter race, took second place. Sophomore Lucas Staigle was second in pole vault. The next day, in the same event, he was third. Staigle also posted his best time in the 400, at 1.00.13. Junior Billy Tatom made his longest throws in both the shot put and discus.

Meanwhile, sophomore Rebecca Cummins set personal records in two of the girls' competitions. She threw the javelin 78-08 and ran the 100 in 14.88. Sophomore Jade DeLury was third in the 800-meter race.

Next, Joseph will compete May 7 in Baker City.
