15 Track Athletes competed at the Divisional Meet in Laurel last week.
The top 8 places go to State. Of our 15, 7 athletes will be advancing.
Ashley was 4th in the 100 hurdles, Carrie was 7th in discus, Brent was 8th in the 100 & 6th in long jump, Drew was 6th in javelin, Luke was 6th in high jump,
and the boy's mile relay team (of Brent, Luke, Billy, and Kell) had a significant PR of 5 seconds to place 8th.
And, although they may not be moving on- here are some additional highlights worth noting.
Elle had PRs in 4 of her 5 events (100, 200, 400, mile relay), Hannah PR-ed in the 800 by taking 13 seconds off her time, and with the mile relay, Ashlyn PR-ed in her split time of the mile relay, Ashley PR-ed in her split time as well, PR-ed in her hurdles and also had a PR in the triple jump of over 2 feet- but sadly, she was edged out of going to State by 2 inches.
The girl's sprint relay was narrowly beaten by .02 seconds to place 9th. Elle was 9th in the 400 with a PR.
Kell had a 1 foot PR in triple jump, but placed 9th. Nathan was 9th in shot put. And- even though they placed 5th, our boy's sprint relay (of Casey, Kell, Luke, and Brent) was wrongfully disqualified and will not get to compete at State.
Congratulations to everyone! And, for those whose season is over, "Thank you"- Erin, Hannah, Brigit, Brielle, Elle, Brooklyn, Ashlyn, Wyatt, Nathan, Clayton, Casey, John, and Virgil for all of your hard work and effort! Have a great summer!
