Pocatello, Idaho – The Syracuse Track Club from Syracuse, Utah, left the crowd stunned as they fought for first in the boys’ 4×400 relay at 2017 Simplot Games.
The team consists of Tanner Kutterer, senior, first leg, Trevor Burrell, sophomore, second leg, Nathan Kaufusi, sophomore, third leg and Hunter Woodhall, senior, fourth leg.
“My strategy going into it was just to win,” said Kutterer. “I start with the goal of getting in the lead and holding that position.”
Beginning his leg, Woodhall was in third place. By the final lap, Woodhall was able to close the gap between him and his competitors and cross the finish line first.
“I have never been more excited than when I crossed that line,” said Woodhall. “I have the greatest team in the world. I run with them in mind.”
More than 2,200 athletes came from across the U.S., Canada, and Australia to participate in the 39th annual Simplot Games. Simplot Games remains the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field event. Sponsored by the J.R. Simplot Company since 1979, the Simplot Games are held at Idaho State University’s Holt Arena in Pocatello, Idaho.
