WPHS Track and Field Girls’ Team Take First Place

Despite cold temps, wind, and several athletes missing for spring break, the WPHS track teams competed very well at the Chaparral and Salida track meets. At Salida, the girls’ team took 1st place, and the boys finished 4th out of 17teams. Individually, the Panthers had numerous athletes finish in the top 8 in their events (top8 score team points). The meets were highlighted with 1st place finishes in the pole vault by Hayden Molina and Jonny Sarmiento. As well as a 1st place finish by Caden Howard in the300m hurdles. All three should be locked in for the state track meet in May.

Head Coach Jeremy Grier expressed his thoughts, saying, “It is fun to see the athletes get excited to perform well as a team. With everyone focused on their individual events, the overall team performance can sometimes get overlooked. We have not been in a position to compete in meets as a team for a while. The athletes are starting to understand how good we can become as a team and do a fantastic job supporting each other.” The teams travel to All City Stadium on April 14th and Rye High School on April 21st! Go Panthers!
