Bridger Altice, senior, led the relay, followed by followed by Cade Koldewyn, senior, Anthony Jacobo, junior, and anchor Max Wehrli, junior.
“I was a little worried coming around the last corner that I was going to slip,” Wehrli said. “Thankfully, that didn’t happen and the win felt great.”
The three juniors on this team all plan to return to the Simplot Games next year, and Koldewyn, the lone senior, hopes to continue his track career at Utah State University after graduating.
The team said they like to keep the mindset of “fight to the finish” and that it is what helped them this weekend at the Simplot Games.
