            Saturday, the team had 3 individual state champions and several more great finishes.  Tate Goble is the state Champion in the 110M hurdles with a time of 16.34. He literally won it at the finish line. Tate worked so hard for this all year and earned it!  Trey Torgerson is the state champion in the 800M race with a time of 2:26.64. shattering her old PR of 2:29 and it wasn’t even close at the finish line winning by 5 seconds. It was awesome!!!  Blaine Anderson caps off an impressive shot put campaign by winning the state championship with a throw of 44-03.50. Blaine has dominated all year and broke a school record in this event.  Karla McCoy ran the 1600M race at 7:30 in the morning and set a new PR with a time of 5:58.18 and took 8th place;  Cauy Williams threw  a 124-06.50 in Javelin and took 8th place;  Alli Mason threw 90-08.25 in discus and took 7th place;  Jacob Johnson cleared 5-08 in High Jump and took 4th place;  The boys 4×400 relay team (Kamden Saling, Ethan Fielding, Keaton Hallows, Greyson Bennett) ran a 3:36.27 and took 2nd place;  The girls 4×400 relay team (Cale Torgerson, Ciarra Anderson, Avery Smith , Trey Torgerson) ran a 4:11.49. a 5 second PR and only 2 seconds off the school record. They took 2nd place after a thrilling finish with North Summit.

              Cale Torgerson ran a 27.34 in the 200M final and took 5th place, Tate Goble ran a 43.93 in the 300M Hurdles and placed 6th;  Jacob Johnson ran a 44.32 in the 300M hurdles and placed 8th; Cale Torgerson ran a 49.49 in the 300M hurdles and placed 4th; and Trey Torgerson ran a 1:00.79 in the 400M final and placed 3rd. That’s a new PR.

              “2022 State track at BYU was hard fought with lots of emotion and grit. Our kids went in there with determination and focus,” said Coach Eric Mason. “One note is Keaton Hallows was battling a pretty significant injury which affected 2 of his races he would’ve placed high in or won (800M and 1600M). He was slowed by it in the 1600M significantly and had to scratch the 800M. He decided to run the 4x400M relay with the group he broke the school record with just 2 weeks earlier and ran a 54 second lap. I was proud to see his grit and determination, yet heartbroken to see such a hard-working athlete go through that at the end of the season. With his individual points the boys would’ve taken 3rd.

This track team is growing every year. We are getting stronger. I will miss the seniors so much and wish them the best of luck in all they do. They really left everything they had in the track.”
