Here is a breakdown on some Carson Valley athletes who have graduated from high school and now compete in college:
TRACK AND FIELD
GARRETT TENNEY — University of Jamestown (N.D.), 2010 Douglas High School graduate: Tenney broke his own school record in the 35-pound weight throw on Feb. 7 at the Thundering Herd Classic. Tenney bested a field of NCAA Division I and II throwers with a mark of 53-feet, 9.75-inches, 4 inches short of qualifying for nationals. “He deserves to go to nationals,” coach Ed Crawford told Jimmieathletics.com. “He’s a pretty dedicated kid, going through track workouts and football workouts. Hopefully, he can get there. He keeps improving.” Last month, the 6-foot-2, 215-pound senior won the weight throw with what was then a school-record of 53-0.
NICK MAESTRETTI — University of Kansas, 2012 Douglas High School graduate: Maestretti logged an indoor personal record jump of 16-feet, 6-3/4 inches to win the college division men’s pole vault Saturday at the Armory Collegiate Invitational in New York City.
DEVYN HOTHO — St. Olaf College (Minnesota), 2011 Douglas High School graduate: The junior forward scored a goal for St. Olaf Feb. 7 in a 1-1 tie at Concordia-Moorhead in Moorhead, Minn. Hotho’s score came at 8:22 of the second period to tie the game. St. Olaf is 5-15-1 overall for the season, 5-8-1 in Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) play.
