Heath and Dwyer Breaks School Records at Districts!
The Lakota East Varsity men had a great night at Districts on Friday night! They qualified 6 athletes to Regionals! Rodney Heath and Justin Dwyer were the stars of the night! Rodney burned up the track in the 100m, breaking the school record and the Lakota District record in 10.81! Justin raced around the oval in a crazy fast time of 48.65 in the 400m, taking the win, and breaking the East record and the Lakota district record in the process. What an amazing performance by these two talented athletes!
Brady Richmond secured second place in the 400m in 50.04, which is also a stellar time and PR! He qualifies and moves on to Regionals! Rodney Heath was also able to qualify in the 200m dash, taking fourth place in a time of 22.42. In the 3200m, Max Chandler PR’d in order to take the fourth spot in 10:13.56, guaranteeing himself a trip to Wayne High School next Friday night! Finally, Kyrell Metts had an amazingly high jump of 6-2, taking runner-up honors in the High Jump and punching his ticket to Regionals!
All of these athletes gave their best and deserve big congratulations on the honor of competing at the Regional meet at Wayne High School next Wednesday and Friday. Congratulations!
