Gorillas Medley team, Voigt shine at Class B state meet
May 28, 2017

Really tough double for Gregory junior Aaron Voigt on Friday as the young man ran the 800 leg on a Gorillas Medley relay team that reached the finals with a qualifying effort of 3:51.


The team of Caleb Stukel, Jayd VanDerWerff, Robert Vomacka and Voigt made the finals, but Voight, still had work to do.


About an hour later, Voigt sucked it up and ran a 10:30 2-mile to finish 5th in the event. 


On Saturday, the tables were reversed as Voigt got to run the 1600, and then, 90 minutes later, doubled back to run the anchor in the medley finals. 


And oh what a mile he ran.

Voigt, with a lifetime best of 4:37 passed rival Kray Person down the stretch to finish third in the event. 


And then, 90 minutes later with his Gregory teammates fighting to put him in position, Voigt brought the baton home in 5th. 


1600 Medley: Caleb Stukel, Jayd VanDerWerff, Robert Vomacka and Aaron Voigt - 5th - 3:50

3200 meters - Aaron Voigt 5th - 10:30

1600 meters - Aaron Voigt 3rd - 4:37


Some nice results from Gregory and with a lot of young talent coming up that should be even better next year.
