Track athletes continued to improve at Friday’s home meet.
The boys’ 4X400 relay team place 1st. The team consists of freshman Angel Trujillo, sophomore Eli Oliver, and seniors Jace Reves and Dawson Schultz.
Reves finished 1st in the 800m run as well and 3rd in the 1600m run. Freshman Sienna Jones finished 2nd in triple jump. Sophomore Rebekah Stuhlsatz got 2nd in both the 1600m and 3200m run. Oliver got 2nd in high jump as well.
The boys team finished in 6th place and has a season record of 14-10. The girls finished in 5th place and now have a season record of 16-8.
“Thank you to everyone who helped run off our meet. We were kind of short-handed this year so I know it was a lot more work for those of you who did help,” said head coach Roger Alderman.
“We competed well throughout the day, but the conditions did worsen as the meet went on. Personal records were harder to come by later in the meet, but we still had 16 PR’s and season bests by the end of the meet and capped it off by winning the boys 4X400. We’ll get a good test this week at the Pre-State Challenge in Wichita. It’s held at Wichita State University, the site of the state track meet. It should have lots of good competition from across the state and gives us a chance to experience a little of what a state track meet will be like,” Alderman said.
