Big congratulations to both our Girls and Boys Track teams for winning their Sectional meets. Good luck at Regionals this week!
The JHS boys track team started their season with the bar set high and many goals to accomplish. They have been pretty successful at achieving them, but they’re not done just yet.
During indoor season, senior Victor Dailey won the state championship for the high jump and last year he won sectionals, regionals, and placed at state. Sophomore Josh Wiers placed eighth in state during indoor, as well.
The regular season is coming to a close and the team is now looking forward to succeeding in the postseason. “Our greatest strength is that we can always bounce back.” said Dailey.
The team is led by strong upperclassmen and talented newcomers as well. The underclassmen have been helpful, but the upperclassmen have a lot of experience with the sport. The seniors this season have inspired the underclassmen and they are seen as a big asset to the team. They will be missed by their teammates.
“As a team, we have a lot of strengths. Although one of our biggest weaknesses will be the loss of our talented seniors.” said sophomore, Jordan Starks.
