Ross VolkmerMay 17, 2019

When the busy day was done at the 3A, 2A & 1A regional track meets, 99 total athletes from the Northwest Kansas area qualified for the state track meet in Wichita next weekend.

Due to the questionable weather possibly coming into the Northwest Kansas area regional track meets were moved up a day to make sure they got them in.

The Wallace County girls were the only school from the area to capture a regional team title, doing so in 1A just defeating other area teams in Rawlins County & Golden Plains who came in second & third respectively.

Wallace County as a school qualified the in the most events of any area team with 15, ten girls events & five boys events.  Colby & Oakley tied for the second most with 13 events total each.
