Trevor Albert was biding his time.

After running fourth for most of the 3200-meter run Friday at Cardinal High School, Albert began to display energy with two laps to go that his opponents no longer possessed. Albert sped away from Pekin’s Malcolm Myers and Davis County’s Doug Turner, and eventually caught his teammate Ryan Cale and won the 3200.

Albert earned Cardinal 10 points with his victory, but it was the Pekin Panthers that dominated the Bob Gerard Relays. The boys won with 190 points, which was 63 more than second place Cardinal. The Pekin girls dominated yet again, finishing with 225.5 points. Pekin has not lost a girls’ meet this season.

Pekin’s Ryan Millikin won the 800-meter run and the 1600-meter run. The Panthers would control the field events, with Colton Lanman (high jump), Eric Adam (shot put) and Jared Bond (discus) all winning individual events.

On the girls’ side, the Panthers had an entire group of competitors win an event. Gwynne Wright, Taylor Reynolds, Shea Dahlstrom, Taylor Lock, Mallory Reed, Samantha Wright, Shelbie Williams and Bridget Fritchen each finished first in an event. Pekin also won five different relay races.

The host Cardinal Comets finished second on the boys’ side and third on the girls’ side. Charlie Rachford won the 100-and 200-meter dashes, along with the 110-meter hurdles. Sarah Schmidt took home the girls’ long jump title with a leap of 14-01.00.

The Van Buren Warriors finished fourth on the boys’ side and fifth in the girls’ competition.
