Ross VolkmerMay 22, 2021

Over 60 area track and field athletes from NW Kansas will be headed to Wichita next week for the state track meet. 

97 different events from 13 area schools placed inside the top four at their respected regionals this past Friday. 31 of those events were regional champions.

Two area teams won themselves a team regional title: the Colby girls at the 3A Holcomb regional & the Golden Plains girls at the 1A Mankato-Rock Hills Regional. 

State Track will take place once again at Cessna Stadium in Wichita but will not all compete at the same time due to COVID regulations.  3A schools will compete on this coming Friday while 1A & 2A schools will compete on Saturday.
