Wildcats Track Coach Matt Young said it is an honor just to make it to the Regional Track Meet. He was very proud of the four Wildcats he took to Mavericks Stadium at UT Arlington last Friday and Saturday (April 27-28).
Senior Dedric Godbolt had a good day at high jump getting a personal best effort. Coach Young said he came in seeded seventh of eighth out of 16 jumpers. Godbolt cleared 6-foot on his third attempt and 6-foot-2 on his third attempt. Godbolt also clear 6-foot-4 and found out that he was among only four athletes left. All jumpers also cleared 6-foot-5. Goldbolt and another jumper went out at 6-foot-6. Godbolt finished fourth due to having more misses than the other jumper, who finished third.
Sophomore Kylan Wade competed in the 110-meter hurdles and made the finals. He entered the finals with the eighth best time and finished eighth. Landry Tyson ran in the 300-meter hurdles. He did not made the finals.
Eli Sellers competed in the 800-meter run, which was a final event. Coach Young said Sellers needed to ran faster than he had before to get near the top but was unable to do so. Coach Young said going to the Regional Track Meet is great experience. He said all who went to regional would be coming back next year except for the senior Godbolt.
