Track team prepares for Regionals

The track team has done pretty good this year, participating in six track meets so far.
Now, the Bucklin and League meet are left for the regular season. The team will be going to Garden City to compete in their 1A Regional track meet on May 22. There will be 24 teams participating in that track meet. Most of them will be HOPL schools. Most of the Skyline athletes have seen the other schools in other track meets.
“I am very excited about our chances at Regionals,” junior Bryce McKennon said. “I feel like a lot of people have a good chance to make it to State in anything we participate in.”
Athletes have to make certain marks or times in order to participate in the regional track meet. The top four competitors will advance to compete at the largest track meet in the country at State in Wichita.
On Tuesday, the team traveled to Jetmore. The last few years when the team traveled to Jetmore it was hot and miserable. This year it was the complete opposite.
“I thought the meet was going good. It wasn’t to hot or cold. It was just right until it started to downpour halfway threw the track meet,” sophomore Madalyn Owens said.
Junior Jessica DeWeese and senior Daniel Hacker are the only two returning State qualifiers. DeWeese made it in the 100 and 200 and Hacker threw javelin.
