The Baker track and field team kicked off its first competitive season in two years on Thursday, April 15 by playing host to La Grande, Nyssa and Joseph.

Baker’s Emma Baeth, left, won the 800 and 1,500 races on Thursday, April 15. Her teammate, Sydney Keller, in background, finished second in both races. Both Baeth and Keller were also members of Baker’s 4x100 relay team, which finished first.

The Bulldog boys placed third behind Nyssa and La Grande, with Kaden Myer winning the 100 with a personal record of 11.51 seconds and Dash Bloomer winning the 300 hurdles in 50.40 seconds, also a personal best.

Baker coach Suzy Cole was impressed the Bulldogs’ performance in their first competition since May 2019.

“I thought they did amazing given it’s been almost two years since they competed,” Cole said. “To come out as strong as they did and just kind of getting their legs back underneath them and stuff, I was very impressed.”

Other Baker individual winners in the girls event included Alexis Conant, who won the 100 hurdles in 19.25. Baker’s Brooklyn Jaca placed second.

Sydney Keller placed second in both the 800 and 1,500, and Anna Belding was second in the 200.

The Bulldogs will travel to Nyssa for a meet on Thursday, April 22.
