Track team makes it to state after successful year

Both the girls and boys track teams both had successful seasons that for some athletes is still going.
Six girls and five boys advanced to regionals with both Taylor Stolt and Dylan McDorman advancing to the State Track Meet in Austin on May 13.
“The Boys Track Team had a really successful 2011 track season,”Boys Track Team Coach Bill Mercer said. “The Team won three meets that included the Burk Medaly Relays, The Mustang Relays in City View and The Hawk relays in Iowa Park. The team had an overall 4th place finish at The District Meet.”
The girls track team also had a very successful season, resulting in them placing 3rd in district.
“Advancing 6 kids to regionals is a highlight to me,” Girls Track Coach Lounette Decker said. “Anytime in the season a kid has a personal best, it means they meet goals they’ve set.”
With one member per team going to the State Track Meet both coaches have high hopes for the outcome.
“Taylor advanced to state,” Coach Decker said. “Hopefully she will bring home a medal.”
