The SHS track team recently finished the regional tournament in Sheridan Wyo, May 15 and 16.

Sheridan performed well in the regional competition with multiple high placing individual finishes.   SHS senior Joseph Klebba placed 2nd in the Discus throw with a throw of 137’ 6”. SHS long jumpers junior Dayton Bruney and sophomore Peyton Bomar each placed 1st in the regional competition with distances of 20’ and 16’ 9” respectively. Bomar would also go on to earn first place in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 46.65 seconds. Senior Cameron Craft made 4th place in the 110 meter hurdles in 16.64 seconds.

Many of the regional competitors were eager to reflect on the season. SHS discus thrower senior Colbey Bruney said, “I liked track a lot this year. I felt that I made strong relationships with my teammates this season. Our conversations on the bus was one the high points of my experience.”

All top eight performers from Regionals in their respective events are invited to the state competition in Casper May 21st. Individuals can also pre-qualify for the state competition if they pass a certain specified time during the regular season. Nearly fifteen individuals from Sheridan qualified for the State competition and will be competing in Casper this week.

The team continues to prepare for the state competition and desires to do well in finishing the year.
