Saturday, May 11 the boys and girls varsity track team took first place at the district track meet in Washington Missouri, giving them the district title.

“Being able to help the team win districts by placing in all of my events had been my biggest accomplishment so far this year,” sophomore Andrew Ahrens said. Since it was raining and the weather was below 50 degrees, it changed the atmosphere of the meet. For sophomore Ahrens these changes were not hard to get use to, due to training he has done.

“I’ve gotten a lot of different conditions thanks to cross country and outdoor practices, so it wasn’t too bad,” Ahrens said.

Ahrens thinks that the weather conditions did affect everyone’s times, but the goal was to place top four. For junior Jackson Sniff prefers that was cooler rather than 90 degrees.

“It was a little difficult to get warmed up and sitting around for 7 hours was just a little uncomfortable, but I was a lot happier than if it would have been 90,” Sniff said.

Junior Brooke Hilton ran the 4×800, 1600, 800, and 4×400 in the district meet.

“My biggest accomplishment this season so far would be running sub 2:30 in 800 after coming back a month late due to basketball,” Hilton said.

Sniff was one of the members of the team who qualified to run at sectionals.

“I think my biggest accomplishment this year so far was probably qualifying for sectionals. I ran really close to my PR of 10 minutes and I got third place,” Sniff said. Senior Ryan Long sets a new school record of 22-6 for the long jump.

Sectionals will take place this upcoming Saturday.
