Bronson Winter, from Farr West, Utah, Wins Boys’ 1600 Meters at 2018 Simplot Games
Pocatello, Idaho – Bronson Winter, a senior from Farr West, Utah, won the boys’ 1600 meters at the 2018 Simplot Games with the time of 4:17.35. This was his best indoor 1600 meters time.
“This year was different as I was leading the race,” Winter said. “In previous years, Talon Hull or Casey Clinger lead the pack. This year Caleb Armstrong came around and helped push me.”
Winter will serve an LDS mission and then run for Weber State University.
More than 2,200 athletes will come from across the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to participate in the 40th 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.
