With the divisional track and field meet behind them, six Wolf Point and four Poplar athletes are looking to earn medals at the State Class B meet in Butte Friday and Saturday, May 30 and 31.
Both schools emerged from the Northern B Divisional Meet at Great Falls Saturday, May 24, with good showings. The top six in each event advance to state.
“Every boy we took to divisionals made it,” Wolf Point head coach R.C. Page said.
“Sonica [Archdale] made it in five events. She had a great day. She had two second place finishes,” he said.
Page praised Archdale, Shelby Hanks, Ashley Page and Kateri Rush for a personal best for the girls’ short relay team.
“Shelby Hanks high jumped exceptionally well and we finally got her to her goal of clearing five feet,” he said.
Page said he would like to have nice weather for the state meet, but he said rain was in the forecast.
“We always get crummy weather in Butte,” he said.
“We have some girls and boys who have a chance to earn a medal,” Page said.
Poplar head coach Brent Moore said his team has had a good season and he was hoping for the best at state.

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.
