LOGAN - The Class 1A track and field championships are weeks away, but Logan already appears to be strong contenders.

Both of Logan's boys and girls rose to the top in the team standings of the 15-team Logan Varsity Meet on Saturday, with several athletes logging qualifying times or distances for the state meet.

"I felt like both teams competed well, considering we were on spring break last week," Logan coach Robert Young said, noting several athletes also improved their times in previously state-qualifying events. "We have a lot of experience coming off last season."

The Logan boys and girls teams also won the previous week's Rattler Relays in Tucumcari.

The Lady Longhorns dominated with 103 points Saturday, 34 more than runner-up Santa Rosa.

Logan sophomore Kaylee Williams won both the 100-meter dash (13.24 seconds) and 200-meter dash (0:28.54).

Other winners for the Lady Longhorns:

• Sadie Bruhn in the 1,600-meter run (7:12.86);

• Hailee Robertson in the pole vault (7 feet);

• Sierra Horne in the long jump (15 feet);

• 400-meter relay (0:54.44);

• 1,600-meter relay (4:43.85);

• 3,200-meter relay (11:29.84).

Young also said Desta Rose qualified for state in the high jump and Robertson in the pole vault.

The Tucumcari girls finished a strong third with 62 points, seven behind the Lady Lions.

Alexus Lafferty won the javelin throw for the Lady Rattlers with an effort of 87 feet, 10 inches. Tucumcari's 1,600 medley relay also won in a time of 5:05.34.

For the Logan boys, Haden Judd won two events to pace his team's 74 meet-prevailing points, edging runner-up Texico's 69 points.

Judd crossed the finish line first in the 100-meter dash (0:11.11) and 200 (0:23.20) and earned a state-qualifying time while finishing second in the 400 and pole vault.

The Longhorns also won the 1,600-meter relay in 3:45.93.

The Tucumcari boys finished in a tie for fourth with Maxwell with 43 points.

Winners for the Rattlers:

• Manny Hernandez, 3,200-meter run (12:11.0);

• Khobie Salvador, shot put (40-11);

• Andrew Henderson-Clark, javelin (131-6).
