Track and field took on the McKinney Boyd Broncos on Friday and Saturday. However, due to weather, the Redhawks had to scratch on Saturday cutting their time short.

Track and field raced to the finish line on Friday at the McKinney Boyd Relays but could not get back on the track on Saturday due to weather.

“The meet was supposed to be two days, but since it was cold on Saturday a lot of teams scratched, we were one of those teams,” head boys’ coach Robert Thayer said.

Despite the weather causing the team to scratch on Saturday, the team was able to learn some things according to girls’ head coach Kheara Vay. 

“Our field events went well on Friday,” Vay said. “They definitely highlighted the things we are strong in but also the things we need to focus and work on going into the next meet this week,”

One of the Redhawks to place in her event, freshman Makena Wise was surprised by her accomplishments.

“I didn’t think I was gonna do as well as I did,” Wise said. “I was kind of intimidated by the other girls, but I managed to come out in fourth and I’m really proud of it.”

For the long distance runners, Thayer believes they did well despite the weather.

“Our 1600m and 3200m boys had really good times, especially with the wind conditions, which aren’t ideal for running multiple laps,” Thayer said.

Although the sprinters were not able to run on Saturday because the team scratched, the field events and relays were able to stay produce results that Thayer liked. 

“We definitely had some good marks,” said Thayer. “Field event-wise we had some personal bests, and distance-wise our guys 4x800m relay had really solid split times.”
