State Bound
by Braden Bischler
The Rockets traveled to Cessna Stadium in Wichita on Friday and Saturday. The boys had a tough time at state; the 4x100 team was 2 places away from going to finals with a solid time of 44.12, just .02 seconds more than their seed time. In Shot Put, Senior Braden Bischler had a tough time trying to get a good throw in and ultimately wasn’t able too. Senior JJ Carney ran the 400 Meter Dash with a PR time in the prelims of 49.47. Carney also was the only Rocket to qualify for finals. He returned the next day and finished finals in 5th with a time of 50.46. The Lady Rockets only brought 2 girls to state, senior Emily Witt and Junior Gracie Van Driel. Van Driel competed in the Long Jump for the the Lady Rockets, and placed 14th versus great competition. Witt competed in both the Triple Jump and the 100 Meter Hurdles. She placed 16th in the Triple Jump with a distance of 31.03 feet. Witt also faced very tough competition in the Hurdles, placing 14th overall with a time of 17.16. The Rockets had a very successful season and improved a lot over the year.
