Track Athletes Finish Strong at State Meet

We had a strong finish at the TCAL State Track meet on May 6th and 7th. Allen Academy hosted the meet this year, and we had 5 boy athletes competing.

The running events were extremely competitive and we finished with the best finishes in school history.

Hunter Walz finished 2nd in both the 100 meter and 200 meter runs. David McGuire 2nd and Elias Martin finished 5th in the 400 meter run. Jinyoung Jang finished 10th in the 800 meter run. The 4x100 relay, which consisted of David, Hunter, Geoffrey, and Jinyoung, finished in 5th place. We also broke personal records in the field events. Geoffrey Tomlinson finished 5th in the shot put with a throw of 32 feet 8 inches. Jinyoung Jang finished 10th in the discus with a throw of 81 feet. David McGuire finished 7th in the high jump with a leap of 5 feet 2 inches.

Our middle school track program also competed well this season. The squad traveled to meets at Houston Christian, John Cooper, and the Woodlands Christian Academy. We had 12 athletes that competed this year in each running event and discus, long jump, and high jump.

Every athlete worked hard and improved tremendously throughout the season. We look forward to another season of competition next spring!

Go Wildcats!
