North Sevier’s track team participated in the region 16 meet this past Wednesday and Coach Terron Barney was pleased with the results.
“The region meet this year was one to remember. We saw several athletes qualify for the state meet by either placing top 4 in their event or by state qualification mark,” he said. “From a coach’s standpoint, it was an emotional experience as we witnessed the kids compete beyond what they thought they were capable of. We also saw teammates lifting each other when another teammate did not quite compete to the level they had hoped to and we witnessed kids supporting each other in their successes as well. It was a meet I will forever remember, and I just want every one of the kids on the team this year to know how much I have grown to love them. This is an incredible bunch of kids! We will have 22 kids and all 6 relay teams competing at the state meet this year.”
