Eleven Redhawk track and field athletes will be competing in the Region 2-5A Championships Friday and Saturday at the University of Texas at Arlington’s Maverick Stadium.

Girls’ head track coach Khera Vay believes that the athletes’ character will ensure success over the weekend.

“The strength of this group is the support, love and respect they have for each other and the knowledge of the challenges that each individual event brings to the others,” Vay said. “I know the time, effort and discipline they have brought to every detail of the season…will pay dividends this weekend. The young people they are speak volumes above any athletic accolades they can achieve and the character traits they all possess will help guide their success this weekend as well.”

[W]e run pretty consistently at every meet, [so a]s a team, we are hoping to show off all the hard work we have put in over the season,” Wilkins said. “So many girls making it this far to regionals is super exciting, considering how young our team is [and that] many athletes are freshmen. Individually, I am focusing on the 3200m and hoping to run a fast enough time to get me the wild card for the state meet.”
