PROVO -- Senior runner Brad Nye led the Davis charge with a trio of gold medals in the 1,600, 3,200 and 800 meters at BYU's Clarence Robison Stadium as the Darts captured the 2012 state 5-A track and field championship with a team total 124.5 points.
"Event after event our guys just kind of fed off each other and one thing after another went right," Davis coach Corbin Talley said. "And one event at a time is how they took it, and eventually won the meet."
Nye's performance was all the more impressive after an injury last week almost kept him from competing.
"I tweaked my hamstring last Thursday and I was concerned I wasn't going to be able to run," Nye said. "But I was so very happy that I was able to win all three."
Nye said bringing home another team title as a senior was just icing on an illustrious high school career.
"It's been awesome to be on a team like this and work with a coach who is so very passionate and works so hard for his team," he said.
In the field for the Darts, junior Marcus Daley barley qualified for the finals in the long jump before posting the day's best effort in the finals with a mark of 23-0.50 on his last attempt.
"I was trying to get the crowd more involved because I figured that they more they get involved the better I jump," Daley said. "I tried to get as much pump as I could and gave it everything I had and ended up right on the board where I needed to be."
Talley said it was Daley's jump that was the catalyst for the Davis squad.
"Not only did he win but out whole team got really involved and clapping and cheering for him."
Davis' Seth Fortin was second in the 200 meters, teammate Trevor Leavitt ran third in the 400 meters, while the Darts finished second in the 400-meter relay.
Davis' Jeff Whittaker finished second in the javelin.
In other 5-A results, Syracuse seniors Zach Watson and Jacob Zaugg finished first and second in the pole vault and the Titans also picked up a win in the medley relay with their time of 3:39.75. The Titans' Jaxon Hansen and Brandon Yardley finished right behind Nye in the 800 as Syracuse finished third overall. Fremont (sixth) and Weber (10th) finished in the top 10.
Fremont's Jaz Johnston cleared 6-3 for gold in the high jump and Weber's Mitch Mordaunt was first in the 300-meter hurdles. He ran second in the 110-meter high hurdles, with Syracuse's Shane Russell third.
Running on a bruised talus bone Roy senior Cole Eisenour rounded out a perfect season in the 110-meter hurdles, nudging out Woods Cross' Cam Dopp with his time of 14.90.
"I started pushing and saw Cam out of the corner of my eye and felt like I just edged him," Eisenour said. "It feels really good to finish with a win."
Dopp won the 300-meter hurdles.
Roy also struck gold in the high jump as Anthony Gregory cleared 6-4.
Box Elder's Michael Harrop topped the pole vault event at 12-6, followed by Roy's Bryan Rees and Woods Cross' Jordan Warner, and Bees teammate Quinn Miles won the discus event with a distance of 47.04.
