North Sevier’s track and field team took 21 athletes to the state tournament held Friday and Saturday May 21-22 at Davis High School and came away with several medalists. Overall the boys team placed 8th and the girls team 9th.
“The state track meet this year was very competitive and saw many teams in the running for a good placement as it came down to the 4×400 meter relay to determine placements,” said Coach Terron Barney. “All of the kids who competed did very well with many of them earning points for the team. This was such a fun team to coach. We will definitely miss our 9 seniors! They are Brianna Anderson, Alaina Barney, Kelby Bosh, Makiah Croft, Tanner Holt, Caleb Madsen, Caleigh Nelson, Trishna Nielson and Ethan Roberts. We would like to thank them for their leadership and for everything they have done to make this a fun and successful season. I would also like to thank the best assistant coaches in the state. These coaches have done so much to help these kids and build this program and I cannot thank them enough. They are Eric Mason, Curtis Ogden, Michelle Roberts, Ashlin Goble, Max Asper and Riley Ogden.”
