Several Wolf Point High School track and field athletes improved their personal bests in cold, blustery weather at the 34-team Baker Invitational Saturday, April 12.
Wolf Point’s girls’ team finished 15th with five points. Glasgow finished in first place in boys’ and girls’ competition.
“This is the biggest meet we’ve been to so far this season,” head coach Robert Page said.
“We’re young, but I wasn’t unhappy. They went out and competed well,” he said.
“The kids set some personal bests from a week ago when we were in Glasgow, which shows they are making progress,” Page said.
“Sonica [Archdale] tried the javelin and did well. It’s a new event for her,” he said.
Archdale, the only senior girl on the team, also showed promise in the triple jump.
Ashley Page recorded a fifth-place finish in the long jump, her best so far this year.
“Kenny Boos made the finals in the 110 hurdles as a freshman,” Page said.
“I told the kids I was happy with how they competed, but I wasn’t satisfied and I didn’t want them to be satisfied, either,” he said.
Wolf Point has a junior varsity meet Tuesday, April 22. The next varsity meet will be at home Saturday, April 26, for the Nashua Invite.
