Regional Track Results
Regional track and field had some great performances over the weekend.
Upton thrower Kevin Allen won the 1A discus with a throw that is 30 feet further than the 1A record. It also would break the 2A mark and would have broken the 3A record by four inches.
Gillette pole vaulter Paula Andrie went over 12 feet three inches in winning the 4A East girls pole vault. The overall record is 11’9. Also Jennifer Orr’s (Guernsey-Sunrise) discus toss would be enough to break the 1A girls state record, if she can replicate the 40'5.5".
Elsewhere, Rawlins sprinter Kereston Thomas ran the 100 meters in 12.09 which is fast enough to break the 3A state mark that she set last year.
In order for a record to be broken, however, it has to be done at the state meet which begins Thursday in Casper.
Sheridan hosted three different Regional meets this weekend. They hosted the East 1A, 2A, and 4A meets. 1A champions were the Guernsey Girls and Upton Boys. 2A title winners were the Lingle girls and Pine Bluffs boys. 4A champs were the Gillette Ladies and Central Boys.
Lander would host the 1A and 2A WEST Meets. Snake River swept the 1A titles while Lovell did the same on the 2A side. CLICK HERE for 1A and 2A WEST Results.
The 4A West in Rock Springs was won by the Evanston girls and the Natrona boys.
3A meets were in Torrington for the East and Pinedale for the West. In the East, the Glenrock girls were champs along with the Douglas boys. The Bearcats, by the way, racked up 231 points to runner up Torrington's 145. In the West, the Cody girls and Powell boys were regional champs. The Powell boys scored 238.5 points to 2nd place Cody's 154. Should be a good Douglas v. Powell showdown at state next week.
