Mountain Valley Track & Field had Great Showing in Hawk Quad Meet
Mountain Valley Middle School Hawks 7th Grade Boys won their recent Quad Track Meet at the Hawk Nest scoring 216 points. Lady Hawks finish 3rd scoring 132 points with Aubrey Avey leading the Ladies scoring 26 points in four events.
“We have quite a few bright spots on our track teams this year,” Head Track Coach Brandon Pawelek came out of the blocks. “Our hurdlers are doing well and hoping for some district champs in those races. We have done well in various field events and are hopeful for 1st place in district in some of those as well. We are proud of all our track kids this year for working hard and competing in a tough district. It has been fun to watch them improve throughout the season.”
For the Boys, Jace Morales was active scoring in 5 events with 26 points followed by Connor Donahue’s 25 points coming from 4 events.
Tyler Soza won the 100 meter dash in a school record 11.76 which would rank 17th on the All-Time Varsity Track team.
On what Soza’s thinking was going into his record breaking run, “I’m so into it (the race) that I did not even know how well I had done and who is running by me. I have been working out since January.”
Those workouts paid a big time bonus with results shown in this meet.
But Soza was not the only athlete that had a break-out day on the track.
The distance events had a boys sweep for the 1600 meter run which has been a weakness through the years at the High School. Aubrey Avey on the girls team won her 800 & 1600 run for a MV sweep in that event.
Those two events would have Avey already in the Top-Ten if she was competing for CLHS. Avey was high point for the Girls scoring 26 points in her 4 events. Addison Parks scored 21 points and was active in 5 events to get to her total of 21 points.
First place finishes were in abundance with 6 boys individual and the 4×400 relay joining in the fun.
The Ladies had 4 first place finishers as Avey’s two in the 800 & 1600 runs and Parks discus, Valerie Thomas 200 dash, and Kinleigh Wilkins on her triple jump event.
Track is all about the depth of a team as points add up with those 4-5-6 place finishers. The MV Boys had 19 scoring points while the Ladies 17 garnering points for the team.

The Eighth Grade had a 2nd Place finish for the Boys who scored 161 points and the Ladies scoring 137 points for their 3rd place spot.
Another good group of scorers with the Girls spreading their mayonnaise over the bread with 13 different girls with Hannah Hammer putting her hammer down with two first place finishes.
“It has been so fun to watch so many girls beat their personal bests each week,” Head Girls Track Coach Alyssa Walker stated. “We are competing against some bigger, tough schools and our girls are really showing some grit. We have several that qualified for the district meet and have a real chance to place district wide. They are making MVMS Proud!”
The Boys were led by Bradley Sowersby who scored a whopping 39 points out a possible 45 in 5 different events.
Other boys scoring in double digits were:
Frank Thomas 24, Kaiden Lewis 21, Chris Tabor 20, Dalton Stromquist 17, Carter Williams 13, and Michael Anderson with 10.
The Ladies had Brilee with 19 points and Laynie Coleman scoring 13 points for MV Hawks.
Frank Thomas finished high in three tough events with a first place for his 800 meter run in an impressive 2:25 and had 3rd place finishes in the 400 meter dash and a 2nd place finish in the mile. Those three runs in one day takes a lot out of an athlete and for this young man finishing well in all three was impressive.
Sowersby finished first in three events with both hurdles and long jump. Sowersby triple jump was a 3rd place finish with teammate Dalton Stromquist finishing in 2nd for that event.
Chris Tabor entered two events and finished first in both with the discus and shot put being his craft. Michael Anderson helped add points for the throwing events scoring 10 points for the Hawks.
Way to Go Mountain Valley Hawks!!
