State preparations as the track season closes

As the track season has come and gone, many feel proud of how they have done and are excited for their upcoming state competitions. After a short lived season last year, the track team has come back with spirit and fight. Junior Mason Mesias, a thrower who has set school records in discus, commented that “coming off of last season that got cancelled, it’s been really nice to have a full season.” 

After completing an eventful season, Mesias prepares for state as it draws closer. Mason hopes to beat his personal record of 136’ 6”, which so happens to be the current school record.

Competing in the 110 m hurdles, Senior Zach Extine is currently second in the state as he heads into the final race of his high school career. His goal: win the state title. As he nears this race he is determined to win and aims to “pay attention to the details and work on the little things,” in order to win state.

Girl’s head coach Bryan Idleman, stresses the importance of “cutting back on the volume and focusing on a few quality workouts.” As state draws nearer, the athletes focus their attention on the details and fine tune their performance.

The Perry track team has their eyes on the prize as they practice and prepare for the state meet. Several athletes wish to take away first place and are poised to do so based off of their current standings.

State is set to take place on May 12th at Desert Vista High School. After a tough but rewarding season, the track athletes trek towards the championship and aspire to take the victory.
