Several Blue Pony track and field athletes will be competing at the 18th Annual Top 10 meet at Glasgow today.
Havre junior Alyssa Matter will compete in the 100 meters and 100-meter hurdles.
She and Class A Sidney's Stacey Rehbein are in lanes 3 and 4 at the meet. Rehbein holds the Top 10 record in the 100 meters at 12.3 which she set in 1998.
Glendive's Shay Burman poses the other Class A competition in the race.
Havre junior Brent Finneman qualified in the 100 and 200 meters.
Finneman placed third last year in the 200 with a time of 23.54. He placed fifth in the 100 with a time of 11.48. His fastest time this season in the 100 is 11.2.
Havre freshman Steve Heberly will also compete in the 100 meters.
Grant Roman and Jillian Brough will be making their first appearance at the meet in the 800 meters for the Blue Ponies.
Jennie Peterson will be making a repeat performance at the meet in both the 1,600 and 3,200 meter runs.
Peterson swept both events last year as a sophomore. She currently holds the second-fastest 3,200 time in the state at 11:45.1.
The record at the Top 10 in the 3,200 is 11:18.8, set in 1984 by Marni Ryti of Terry. Peterson was a one-year-old when the record was set.
Freshman Jenna Baltrusch also qualified in the distance runs for Havre.
Brian DeRosa qualified in the 110 hurdles and LaShae Michels qualified in the 300 hurdles, long jump and triple jump.
Last year, Michels placed fourth in the long jump (15-1 1/2) and sixth in the hurdles (51.07).
Jake Dusek qualified in the triple and long jump, while Erin Patera will compete in the javelin and triple jump.
Chris Klobofski and Jeanna McPherson will compete in the shot put. Amy Ranes qualified in the high jump.
Melissa Haymaker, Tami Huestis, Klobofski, and Jesse Suek will compete in the discus. Suek placed second last year with a toss of 137-6.
The boys qualified in both relays, while the girls will compete in the 400-meter relay only.
The Havre boys' 400-meter relay currently runs the fastest Class A time in the state, clocking in at 44.4.
The Top 10 record is 43.6 set in 1993 by the Glendive Red Devils.
Glasgow, the Class B leader in the relay, with a best time of 44.5 could be a team in contention.
Field events will start at 5 p.m. at the Glasgow High School track.
