Finally able to compete in a scheduled track meet, the Perkins County athletes came away in sixth place in both the girls and boys divisions at the Hershey Invitational on Saturday, April 20.
Weather has caused the postponement or cancellation of some of the spring sports events for the Plainsmen. The Sutherland Invitational and the Chase County Invite were both cancelled; golf meets have been postponed; there have been snow days and late starts for Perkins County Schools during the month of April.
As of Monday, there was more rain/snow mix in the forecast.
Two of the tracksters from Perkins County set new school records at the Saturday meet in Hershey—Elliot Carlson and Quinton Hite broke the school record in the 100m dash. Carlson’s time of 10:81 in second place will stand as the school record. Hite came in third with a time of 11.0, also breaking the school’s record.
The boys team placed sixth in a field of 11 schools with 51.5 points. First place went to Chase County with 109 points. Cambridge was second with 100 points, and St. Pat’s had 72 points for third place.
The Perkins County girls also placed sixth as a team with 42.5 points. St. Pat’s captured first place with 105 points. Second went to Chase County with 86.5 points, and Hershey placed third with 61 points.
Other schools taking part were South Loup, Brady, Garden County, Mullen, Sutherland and Southwest.
