SHERIDAN — Sheridan High School took five girls and one boy to the Wyoming Track Classic, a best-of-the-best meet where individuals can shine. Only the top eight runners and top 10 field athletes in the state can compete.
Assistant Coach Eric Frey said the athletes competed well with great efforts.
“There’s no heats, just 100 meters, eight lanes full, boom, and done,” Frey said.
As of print time, official results for the meet were not available.
Gabby Edeen ran the 100-meter and 200-meter dash and did well.
“It’s pretty cool to run both events in the same day,” Frey said.
Maddy McClure ran the 800-meter. It was a hard race, Frey said, but she hung in there and fought her way to third from fifth and then fourth.
Shayla Christiansen threw 38 feet, 7 inches for sixth place in shot put.
Freshman Peyton Bomar was also at the meet, which is a feat for a freshman, Frey said. Marrisa Hegy rounded out the girls at the meet, and Aaron Campbell was the only representative for the boys from Sheridan High School.
“It’s a neat way to put the measuring stick out, if you will, and see who is the fastest kid in the state. It’s not always from a 4A school, either,” Frey said.
The rest of the Sheridan High School team will head to Casper today for the Kelly Walsh Invite.
