With the Montana State Class B Track and Field Meet at Kalispell over and the school year ending, Wolf Point High School head track and field coach R.C. Page presented awards to team members recently.
They were Kenny Boos, most inspirational; Brenna Kurokawa, most improved; and Owen Lepper, most valuable teammate.
“These awards were voted on by their teammates,” Page said.
He expressed his appreciation for his assistant coaches Eric Peterson and Stan Moran Jr.
“Without them, it would have been hard to have the success we did this season,” Page said.
He also recognized four volunteers that helped with coaching the high school team. They were Dave Allen, Darcy Boos, Jason Brock and junior high track coach Bruce Knerr.
Page thanked them for their time and help with the program.
“At state, we felt there were a few events where we fell short of making the podium, but we really did feel a better understanding of the hard work it will take to be on that podium next year,” Page said.
Page also recognized Sierra Summers as the top girl for her sixth-place finish at the state meet in the 3200 meter run.
