Our girls had a great regional track meet. We finished second by two-thirds of a point. Paige set two school records one in the high hurdles and the other in the prelims of the 200 with a time of 26.11. She was able to qualify for state in four events and pulled off a tough triple by making the 400, 300 hurdles, and 200. Jayden Speer really stepped up in a big way with personal records in the 100 and 200. Chaylee Lowry qualified in two events and had her best vault of the season for second place in the pole vault. Zoe Cox had a personal best in the high hurdles.

The boys team performed as expected. Caden Bach had a good day with two gold medals and a school record in the high jump. Tharen Cox really ran well in the high hurdles. Our two pole vaulters, Nick Stutsman and Aidan Baird, both had good vaults in the pole vault. Nick set a personal best at 13 foot. I was happy to see Jesus Saenz qualify in two events after he nearly missed making the state track meet last year. Overall, our boys and girls had a super regional track meet and we are looking forward to next weeks’ state track meet.
