The Perkins County High School track team finished second at the PCS quad on Thursday, March 27.
For the boys, PCS had 129 team points and Dundy County Stratton won with 175 team points. The Lady Plainsmen finished second with 121 team points behind Dundy County Stratton’s 202 team points.
PCHS head track coach Shayne Hite was excited to get his athletes out onto the track and field to start the season. He especially wanted his younger athletes to get experience at the varsity level.
“This was just a good practice for us. Not only the competition part but also the learning of how meets will go, how to warm up, how to get ready for their events, how to compete, rules, etc.,” Hite said. “But mainly to just get our feet wet. No team points or medals are given at this meet. It’s just a chance to get some experience, especially for our younger athletes.”
The experimentation of getting down who will be in what event is still on-going for the Plainsmen and Lady Plainsmen this early in the season.
“Due to some athletes hanging up the spikes already we are down to 21 boys and 24 girls. For the most part everyone is still doing what I had on the pre-season form. We’ll always experiment with a few athletes in some events as the season progresses,” Hite said.
Derek Sis had a solid day in the 100 and 200 meters, winning both of those events while the 3200 meter relay team for the Plainsmen was also tops at the meet. The 3200 meter team consisted of Coy Aerni, Bryce Wilson, Chris Throckmorton and Sam Rowley.
Stephanie Schrotberger won the 400 meters for the Lady Plainsmen while Kimberly Anderson won the 300 meter hurdles. Anderson also won the high jump for PCHS.
Winning the 100 meter hurdles for PCS was Amanda Osler.
Most of what we saw as coaches we were either expecting or hoping to see,” said Hite. “There were some others that we hoped would do a little better and they should as the season progresses. We saw several individuals who didn’t warm up like they should for their events and once they do they will see how much better they can perform.”
Hite continued, “Two performances that I can think of off the top of my head that I was excited to see already would have been Stephanie Schrotberger’s 400m time of 1:05.6 and Derek Sis’ triple jump of 41’ 7”.”
The Ed Moore Invite is this Saturday in Ogallala.
“All I asked of them at our meeting Friday when we talked about this meet was that they step up and compete to the best of their abilities,” Hite said.
He explained that the meet will be a tough one for his squads, as out of the 10 seniors, only three will be competing due to injury or being out of town on other activities.
“This is always a tough meet because several of the teams are bigger schools and several of them have had a couple meets already. It will be an eye opener for several of our younger athletes,” Hite said.
