After many top finishes in the District 10-5A track and field competition, the race continues for some Redhawks.

“I was really pleased with how the girls competed at the district championship,” head girls’ coach Khera Vay said. “They ran PRs, [and] they competed hard. I was really impressed with how they handled themselves and how they competed.”

Both the boys’ and girls’ teams qualified multiple students to the Area Meet including 3rd place high jumper, junior Mackenzie Raymond.

“It feels great to advance,” Raymond said. “There was a five way tie for first place so there was a lot of pressure on everyone [because we had to re-jump], but I’m glad that I’m able to advance.”

The Area Meet is on Wednesday against the top finishers of District 9-5A. To do well in Area junior runner Sofia Golladay says there is still a lot to work on.

“Since the competition gets harder and more competitive at Area I think we need to work on improving our times even more so we can qualify for regionals,” Golladay said.
