North Sevier’s track team had two qualifying meets this past week, Tuesday at the Nyle Norris Invitational in Richfield and Saturday at the Desert Hills Invitational in St. George. “Both the girls and boys teams performed very well at both meets. We saw a few of the younger athletes set some impressive new personal records and even scored for the team,” said Coach Terron Barney. “The boys 4×400 team consisting of Ethan Fielding, Kelby Bosh, Keaton Hallows and Greyson Bennett qualified for state with a time of 3:45.97. Keaton Hallows had a great meet St George and was able to qualify the 1600 and 3200 for the state meet. I want to publicly thank the awesome coaches we have this year for all of their time and dedication they put into this awesome bunch of kids. Assistant Coaches this year are Eric Mason, Curtis Ogden, Michelle Roberts, Max Asper, Riley Ogden and Ashlin Goble.”
