The Indians traveled to Boise for the 4A State Track meet last week. The final results came in with the girls placing 10th overall with 22 points and the boys 16th overall with 13.5 points.
“Overall we felt good about the state meet,” said coach Brandon Lyon. “There were some really good things that happened and some results we hoped could have been a little better. But all-in-all the kids gave everything they had.”
Olivia Seamons finished second in the triple jump with a new school record of 36’8”. She also took fourth in the 200m with 26.07 and eighth in the 100m at 13.03. Lyon felt she could have been in the top four had she not stumbled coming out of the starting blocks.
Kenidee Hyde took third in the pole vault at 10’6” and seventh in the 100m hurdles with 16.15.
Preston’s other multi-event finisher was Ryden Crowther who took sixth in the 3200m with 9:48 and seventh in the 1600m with 4:33. Matt Willard came in fifth in the high jump at 5’8” and the boys medley placed sixth with 3:45.
Vinny Silva gave the Indians a seventh place in the long jump with 20’6.25”.
“The only regrets we have walking away is that we weren’t able to get a few more athletes to state,” said Lyon. “But we know that with Rigby in our district it is going to be a challenge year-in and year-out. We know, both coaches and athletes, that we have to step things up in the coming years if we are going to be able to compete with Rigby.
