BROKEN BOW -- Litchfieldâ€™s Hope Downer and Tyler Snow put together two of the top performances in the Anselmo-Merna Quad in Broken Bow last Wednesday. Downer was the event champion in the triple jump, 300 meter hurdles and was on the winning 4x100 relay team. Downer fell five-tenths of a second shy of her fourth gold medal in the 100 meter hurdles when Anselmo-Mernaâ€™s Paige Olney beat her to the finish line. Snow was also a three event champion for the Trojans. Snow won the long jump, 100 meter dash and ran the first leg on Litchfieldâ€™s winning 4x100 meter relay.
