Riverton track athlete Tristan Watkins has been opening up some eyes this season with a series of wins in the sprint events. At last week's meet in Douglas, Watkins took first in the 100-meter dash in 11.34 and 2nd in the 200 with a clocking of 22.59. He also finished 6th in the long jump of that meet on Friday at 17 feet 10.25.

At the Lander Twi-Light that was held last week, Watkins picked up wins in the 100 and 200 with times of 11.57 and 24.22 respectively. He won 3 events in the Lander/Riverton dual running 11.43 in the 100, 23.21 in the 200, and leaped 19-1 in the long jump.

There's a long way to go until the state championships in may but Watkins figures to be a factor from here on out. We caught up with him in Douglas on Friday for some thoughts on his efforts in that meet in Converse County.
