Spring must be getting close! The Wildcats competed in two track meets last week, the Best of the Midwest and the Dundy County Stratton Twilight.
On Tuesday, April 30, Tanner Clough represented the Wildcats at the Best of the Midwest Track Meet in Sutherland. Tanner improved his time in the 1600, running 4:47.90 and placing third. Tanner also placed third in the 3200, running 10:50.30.
On Friday, the whole squad traveled to Benkelman for the Dundy County Stratton Twilight. There were 10 teams at the meet including: Dundy County Stratton, Chase County, Hayes Center, Wauneta-Palisade, Rawlins County (Kan.), Cheylin (Kan.), South Platte, Perkins County, Maywood, and Wallace.
The Wallace athletes took advantage of another nice day to improve several marks. Landon Swedberg (discus, 400) and Juan Gomez (1600, 3200) improved in two events each, also medaling in those events. Jackson Porter improved his distance in the shot by over a foot, also earning an individual medal.
Abbey Rohde ran on all three of the girls relays and placed eighth in the discus, earning her letter. Many of the Wildcats scored points at this meet, either through relays or individual events. This meet was scored through eight places (10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1) and medals were also given to the top three teams in each relay.
The next meet for the Wildcats is the D-10 District Meet in Sutherland on Wednesday, May 8.
