Kyle Stocker garners 3 wins at Valley track

Kyle Stocker swept the distance events at the Mississippi Valley Conference Valley Division boys track meet at Xavier on Friday, winning the 3200 meter (9:41.49), 1600 meter (4:29.04) and 800 meter (2:01.43) races.

“Of course three gold medals is great, but we were just shooting for team points, me and my brother (Matt) just working together one-two,” Stocker said. “It doesn’t really matter who wins.”

Matt Stocker also ran well, taking second behind his brother in the 3200 meter race and finishing third in the 1600 and 800 meter races.

“For the 2 mile, we just took it out slow and then kicked at the end,” Kyle Stocker said. "That was my brother's and my strategy, so we don’t wear ourselves out. The mile, we went really slow and it was a kick race at the end, which Matt and I thought would be to our advantage. The 800 was just all out, give it your all. Tomorrow is going to be easy running anyway.”

Despite winning three races, Stocker was humble in victory, insisting that he was just trying to score as many points as possible for his team.

“It is kind of good I guess,” he said. “It is always your goal to win a race, that’s why we race. At Prairie you are expected to, nothing less.”

The Stocker brothers' finishes in the distance races helped to lead Prairie to third place with 120 points. Cedar Falls won theteam  race with 145 points and Iowa City West came in second with 127 points. Xavier was fourth with 67 points and Jefferson fifth with 51 points.

Prairie also won the discus and the 400 hurdles. Sam Joens made a throw of 157 feet, 4 inches, more than 10 feet further than second place, to take home the discus title. Tom Frieden edged out Charlie Rogers of Iowa City West, to take the 400 hurdles crown by .21 seconds with a time of 56.85
seconds.

Xavier won the 4x200 relay with Nick Ball, Eric Zenisek, Jordan Weber and Eric Hovda circling the track twice in 1:30.79, about 0.8 seconds better than their previous best time.

“After competing at Drake, we knew that we had a pretty good time but we could have done better,” Ball said. “So all week we have been working on handoffs. Getting out as quickly as we can, and just making everything as good as we possibly can. We just put it all together in that race and we had an amazing race, we all ran very well.”

The Saints also picked up a victory in the high jump where Alec Clasen won easily, jumping 6-6, half a foot higher than second place.
