Hansen’s long jump ranks third in Bulldog history

Hansen’s long jump ranks third in Bulldog history

Christian Hansen busted off an eye-popping long jump Tuesday at the Western AA Top 10 meet.

The Butte High senior jumped 22 feet, 4 inches to easily win the title at Missoula County Stadium. Jace Klucewich placed second at 20-10 ½, while Bulldog teammate and classmate Ryan Lean took third at 20-03.

Hansen’s leap was not only a personal best. The jump ranks him among the very best in Butte High history.

Only two Bulldogs — Scott Hemmert in 1989 and Marco Stanisich in 1958 — have jumped farther than Hansen, according to the school’s top 10 lists. Hemmert jumped 22-11, and Stanisich posted a mark of 22-5 ½.

Hansen’s jump knocked Butte Sports Hall of Famer Kelly Davis to No. 4 on the Butte High all-time list. Davis, who went on to star on the Montana State football team, jumped 22-2 in 1982.

Another Butte Sports Hall of Famer, Josh Paffhausen, drops a spot to No. 5 with his jump of 22-1 ¼ in 1992.

Hansen’s previous best was a jump of 20-8 ¾ at Butte High’s meet with Missoula Sentinel and Butte Central on April 9. He also has jumps of 20-3 and 18-6. His best jump as a sophomore during the 2019 season was 17-5 ½.

Of course, the 2020 season was wiped out by the coronavirus pandemic.

Senior Anna Trudnowski won the 300-meter hurdles in 46.12 seconds. That puts her at No. 7 in school history. The previous No. 7 was a time of 46.49 posted by Trudnowski as a sophomore in 2019.

Trudnowski already ranks third in Bulldog history in the high jump with her personal best of 5 feet, 5 inches, which she has matched multiple times.

Butte High senior Hailey Nielson won the 1,600 meters in 5 minutes, 26.59 seconds. She missed cracking the school’s top-10 list by a second. Junior Mollee Conlan’s winning time of 12.96 in the 100 meters was a personal best. She needs a 12.7 to crack thee Bulldog top 10.

Bulldog senior Tanner Huff just missed the school’s top 10 with personal bests in the 100 and 200. He won the 200 and took second in the 100.

Butte High’s winning 400-meter boys’ relay team also just missed the school’s top 10 list.

Bulldog junior Dylan Snyder matched a personal-best of 6-2 to win the high jump. He is one inch behind sophomore Cameron Gurnsey for the team best this season. Both, however, have a long way to go to catch the great Jasson McNallie, who cleared 6-10 ¾ in 1989.

Following are Butte High’s boys’ and girls’ top 10 lists for each event heading into the 2021 season. The lists were provided by the school.

    The article about Hanson is a nice article and it was also nice to see the other great track athlete from Buttes history celebrated. It was disappointing though to see only Javelin throwers from the 2000s highlighted. Butte has had some great throwers, throwing over 200ft including Rich Paul, Mark Devore, Ed Semansky, Scott Paffhausen. Even I threw over 185 ft in the 1984 State track meet.
