For two senior track athletes, state is only the beginning

Addyson Schick
After countless practices and endless laps, the high school track careers of seniors Sydni Wilkins and Jack Voehringer are officially over with Wilkins placing fourth in the 3200m run at the state meet while Voehringer finished fifth in the 800m run.

Seniors Sydni Wilkins and Jack Voehringer are advancing to the state track meet at the Mike Myers Stadium in Austin Friday and Saturday, with Wilkins representing the Redhawks in the 1600m and 3200m runs while Voehringer will compete in the 800m run.

“By this point in the season all the work has been done, so it’s all about performing and executing,” Voehringer said. “I want to go run the best race I possibly can at state, coming away with a time that I’m proud of and hopefully a medal. I think as a team, me and Sydni, our goals are pretty similar and we just want to lay everything on the line. I think anything can happen at state. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done all year, what matters is how you perform on that day.”

It’s a sentiment shared by Wilkins, who is chasing a championship in the meet’s two longest races. 

“I think that all athletes that had the opportunity to qualify for state at the regional meet have the hard work and dedication to succeed,” Wilkins said. “I think it comes down to how athletes that perform under pressure that separates the state qualifying athletes from others.”

Girls’ head track coach Khera Vay is similarly looking forward to seeing how Voehringer and Wilkins perform on the biggest stage.

“I’m excited to see these two run at state,” Vay said. “They’ve made such an impact on their programs and hopefully are going to finish off the year strong.”
