Wolf Point and Poplar track and field athletes will advance to the divisional meet in Great Falls Saturday, May 24.
Both local schools made strong showings at the 2B District Meet in Glasgow Saturday, May 17.
“We are still setting personal bests,” Wolf Point head coach Robert Page said.
The girls’ 4x400 relay team of Sonica Archdale, Shelby Hanks, Ashley Page and Kateri Rush shaved 11 seconds off their previous best time.
Page said they have a very good chance to improve on it.
Brady Babb finished first in pole vault, an event he didn’t know if he wanted to participate in at the start of the season.
“To be a district champion was a huge surprise for him. He keeps getting better,” Page said.
“It goes to show that if you put in the hard work, good things can happen,” he said.
Page is taking 12 WPHS track athletes to the divisional meet who will compete in multiple events. Six male and six female athletes are going.
“We believe we stack up very well at this divisional meet to get some state qualifiers,” Page said.
The state meet will be at Butte Wednesday and Thursday, May 28 and 29.
