Taking the Fast Lane
Qualifying six total events for the State Track meet, Rose Hill traveled to the WSU stadium May 26 and 27. Three Rockets placed at State including JJ Carney’s third place finish in the 400-meter dash. He finished second in the prelims with a 50.85 time. The finals was a close race and Carney lost another second place finish by 0.02 seconds and came in third. After winning the regional shot put, Janessa McMains’ threw 38’ 2’’ giving her a fourth place finish. Dylan Sapp narrowly placed in his field event, jumping 20' 8.5’’ to come in 1.5 inches ahead of ninth. Braden Bischler also competed in the shot put, finishing in 11th after throwing 49’ 11’’. The only other event to qualify for the girls’ team was the 4 x 800 relay ran by Anna Van Driel, Emma Cunningham, Celia Pope, and Emily Witt. The relay had difficulty keeping up with the front group and added to their previous time to come in 12th at 10:35. The boys’ team qualified a 4 x 100 relay team with a time of 44.18 ran by Travis Jones, Cody Wallis, JJ Carney and Dylan Sapp. They competed in the prelims, but were unable to advance after finishing two seconds behind the winner to come in 14th. The track team had a solid 2017 season and look forward to next year after only losing two seniors who participated at the State meet
