Track Successful At AVCTL

After waiting out a downpour on Friday to leave for Collegiate, the boys and girls track teams had a very successful AVCTL Meet. The girls finished in 2nd place while the boys finished in 3rd place. The Rockets were led with by several top finishers including Carter Wagner who placed 1st in the triple jump with a distance of 41’ 9”. Teagan Cobb also brought home the gold in the 110-Meter Hurdles with a time of 15.69. Kate Dare won the girls 100-Meter Dash with a time of 12.49 as well as the girls 200-Meter Dash with a time of 26.59. The boys 4x800 Meter Relay team of Drew Leck, McCoy Korte, Korbin Woods, and Ethan Anderson won the league title with a time of 8:44.90 beating 2nd place Clearwater by nearly 15 seconds! Multiple 2nd and 3rd place finishes also helped the girls’ and boys’ teams in the team standings. After a successful league meet, the boys and girls will prepare for the all-important Regional Meet being held at Andale on Friday. The Regional Meet will determine qualifiers for the following week’s State Track Meet at WSU.

Swimming Season Ends At AVCTL

The girls swimming season under first year head coach Christopher Kurt has come to an end after the AVCTL Meet that was held at Salina Central on Friday. The girls had no state qualifiers for next weekend’s State Meet in Topeka. The Lady Rocket swimmers finished the season by placing 11th at the League Meet. The girls’ best finishes include two 10th place finishes. Grace Koehn, Madison Ivy, Jenna McCulloch, and Josie Belden recorded a time of 2:39.88 in the 200-Yard Medley. The 200-Yard Freestyle Relay team of McCulloch, Ivy, Jaidyn Myers, and Belden finished with a time of 2:27.79. Coach Kurt knew that this season was going to be a rebuilding year with the girls not having hardly any experience returning after last season was canceled due to Covid-19. However, even though it doesn’t show in the standings, the season was a success as the team gained a lot valuable experience that can be carried into the 2022 season.
