How thrilling is an all-out sprint at the end of an already fast half-mile race? No matter the outcome, spectators watching the determined faces of two young runners vying to cross the finish line first get a heart-pounding and heart-lifting experience.

Just such a race occurred this past Friday at the Yavapai County Track and Field Championships at Bradshaw Mountain High School.

Rounding the final turn of the 800-meter, Bradshaw's Ryan Madler dogged the heels of Sedona's Travis Okie. Coming down the straightaway, Madler kicked on the afterburners to pull even and then gain a half-step on Okie, who clearly was giving it all he had trying to hold off the Bears' senior. But Madler was not to be denied on his home oval and edged his Scorpion competitor by a quarter-second, winning in a school record 1:57.01.

"Ryan just ran a great race," was all Bradshaw coach Mike Simon could say.

The multi-team meet included runners from Prescott, Chino Valley, Sedona Red Rock, Mingus Union, Mingus Mountain Academy, The Orme School, Mayer and Camp Verde.

Lindsey Lowman recorded Bradshaw's only other first place finish of the meet with a personal best long jump of 16-feet-6-inches. Simon noted sophomore Lowman is closing in on the school record of 17-2. She also placed second in the 100-m hurdles, with 15.81.

Second place in the discus went to senior Eric Bruhn, 127-feet-11.5.

In relays the Bradshaw foursome of Ashlie Dowdy, Kylie Morris, Sarah Wadsworth and Nicole Pino placed second and recorded the season's best times so far in both the 4x100, 51.63 seconds, and the 4x400, 4:23.

A passel of Bears medaled in third place, including: Ryker Wells,110m hurdles, 16.62 seconds; Abelino Carbajal, 300m hurdles, 44 seconds flat; Jeff Dougherty, 100m dash, 11.91; Kylie Morris, triple jump, 31-feet-1; the 4x400m relay team of Brian Sanchez, Madler, Saul Martinez and Nick Carder, 3:37.82; the 4x800m relay team of Madler, Martinez, Esteban Morales and Augie Espinoza, 8:32.35; and the 4x800m squad of Alex Davis, Heidi Madler, Athena Dias and Erika Meza, a season best 10:40.

The Bears head to Phoenix today for a final state qualifying meet.
