The Trimble Tech Track Team traveled to Maverick Stadium on the UTA campus April 26th and 27th for arguably the toughest track region in the state to see who would advance to the state track meet down in Austin. Teams from as far away as El Paso made the trip as the top two qualifiers would automatically get bids with the third place spot receiving provisional births to Austin. There were a lot of great athletes as numerous meet records were claimed in this two day event.
Trimble Tech’s 4×4 relay team, made up of Keiohna Williams, Kalyiah Woodard, Zia Mathis, and Aliya Wilson put forth an effort to get out of the area meet. However in the prelims of the 6A Regional Meet, the competition was faster that what these ladies could run. They represented Trimble Tech well in a very tough region to run in. Congrats on a great season ladies!
On Friday, Gabriel Woodard took to the track to get a place in final on Saturday. With a time of 48.79 seconds, in the 400 meters, Gabriel Woodard did enough get earn a spot in the finals.
Saturday in the final, Gabriel improved on his time from Friday and ran a 48.48 second 400 meters. However that was just over three tenth of a second too slow to earn the provisional spot to go to Austin. Gabriel Woodard had a great season and Trimble Tech thanks him for the effort he put forth this season!
Kenondra Davis, the defending 5A 100/200 Meter State Champion came into this week with a target on her back. She came out holding her head high showing everybody at the 6A level that she means business for the next year or so. On Friday, in both the 100 and 200 meters Kenondra secured spots in the finals of both races with times of 11.65 and 23.49 seconds respectfully.
On Saturday it was time to take care of business and punch that ticket back to Austin, Kenondra did just that winning the Region 1 6A 100 Title with a little room to spare!
In the final for the 200 meters on Saturday, all that separated Kenondra from a guaranteed spot to Austin was two one hundredths of a second as she came in with a time of 23.38 which was an improvement from Friday’s time. She is a provisional qualifier and with that fast of a time is likely to be heading back to Austin in both the 100 and 200 meters. Not bad for a sophomore, congratulations on a great season so far but we still have work to do.
