Hawk’s Track& Field Prepare for Region Meet after Finishing 7th in Area Meet

                                               Will Hillenbrand reaching for new Goals after qualifying for Region Meet.

The Hawks Area Meet has just finished on Monday and will now will have 14 Hawk Athletes ready to take their qualifying event(s) to Region IV Meet in Kingsville on April 26-27th.

Madison Churbe scored 18 Hawk points in Area Meet & Qualified in 3 event for Region.

Madison Churbe stepped up big time and will be busy in 3 events after scoring 18 points against 8 schools in this Area Meet. A first place finish in the open 200 meter dash was a highlight for Churbe while jumping over the 5 foot bar barrier as a personal best.

“The girls did a good job of perservering today and I am proud of their efforts,” Head Girls Coach John Barthels stated. “Seven girls qualified for the area meet competing in 5 different events and 5 of those girls qualified for the regional meet in 4 events.”

Coach Barthels continued. “Madison Churbe continued her strong finish to the season with a PR in high jump at 5’0 placing her 4th. She, along with Lainee Moses, Alyssa Strickland, and Hailey Overstreet we’re dominating the 4×200 relay until a bad handoff in the third exchange cost us some quality time. Alyssa did what she was taught to do and came to a complete stop in the exchange zone, grabbed the baton and hustled her way back to a second place finish and our second fastest time of the season. I am excited as these girls know that if things go smoothly, we have a chance at making a little noise at the regional track meet. Sara Medford continues to get better and increased her school record discus throw to 120’ even and placed second in that event. Churbe then capped off our last event running on this evening into a pretty strong wind by winning the 200 meter dash. We have had our struggles this year, but I so proud of the season that they have had and we have a few days until the regional meet next week to do our best this season.”

For the Boys, Patrick McAuliffe had his PR in the high jump as well in reaching 6 feet and William Hillenbrand reached the 14 foot height in qualifying in the Pole Vault.

             Let’s Go Fast Hawks!!

Caleb Almond ran the 3rd fastest 100 meter dash in CL’s annals but that mark just missed a chance for a Region spot. Almond will be busy with two Relays and The Lake’s three Relays will be represented in the Region Meet.

Nic Rivera has a chance of booking an Austin trip in the 300 meter hurdles and will have a chance as his best time of 39:59 this year has an outside chance of qualifying.

The ReSporter will have all the Region School’s best marks next week and Go Fast-Jump-Throw Far Hawks!!
