The Perkins County High School track season is still young but several personal bests were scored at the Ed Moore Invite in Ogallala on Saturday.
The boys track team set 23 personal best records and the girls had 14 in Ogallala.
Shayne Hite, PCHS track coach, was proud of his team’s accomplishments and there were several strong events for the Plainsmen and Lady Plainsmen.
“For boys the sprints and jumps were our strongest areas. For girls our mid-distance and PV were our strongest areas. Did have a hurdler and a distance runner score also,” Hite said.
The meet was filled with larger schools and with smaller numbers of athletes than some schools and the relative age of PCHS athletes, Hite explained his squads finished about where he predicted they would in Ogallala.
The Plainsmen were ninth and the Lady Plainsmen eighth at the meet.
Sidney won for the boys and Mitchell won for the girls.
Warm weather showed Hite something about his team this early in the season.
“Getting some warm weather Saturday showed us how we were not in shape yet, but getting there. We don’t have that finishing part of the race yet but it will come,” Hite said.
Scheduling will be a dilemma for the team this weekend with the Perkins County Invite on Saturday.
“This week will be a tough meet also. We can enter JV’s at this meet so everyone will be able to compete,” Hite said. “The difficulty this week will be getting kids to practice for workouts with State FCCLA Monday and Tuesday, Jazz Band on Tuesday, and State FFA on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Then we have some taking the ACT test on Saturday as well.  Then hopefully things will settle down a little and we can really get to work.”
