Two Wildcats and two Lady Cats’ track athletes competed in the Regional Track Meet this past Friday and Saturday at UT Arlington. Hurdler Zach Spigner just missed going to state by a fraction of a second.
Matt Young, Wildcat Head Track Coach, Spinger advanced to the finals in the 110and 300 hurdles running a 39.06, finishing second in both prelims. In the finals of the 300’s, he ran a 38.90 and took third. The third place times in an event from each region are compared and the top time qualifies for the third place entry into state competition.
Lady Cats Track Coach Triston Abron said Freshman Monty Taylor placed 9th overall in the Triple Jump. Abron said the Freshman jumped well against upperclassmen. Madeline Massey ran the mile but didn’t qualify for state.
