Viking track teams perform at high level in meet
The Central Heights track team members put together some nice performances Monday at Jayhawk-Linn.
“Starting off a very windy day with Alexis [Haynes] finishing second in javelin with another personal-best throw and finishing off the day with Luke [Cotter] crossing the line well ahead of the rest of the field in the 3,200-meters provided solid bookends for another fantastic day for the team,” Central Heights coach Troy Prosser said.
The coach said Aiden Welch keeps improving with a personal best in the shot put. The 3,200 relay team turned in a dominating performance, Prosser said.
“Taryn [Compton] picked up a nice victory in the 300 hurdles,” Prosser said. “
Dakota Kuczmarski took third in the 1,600, which is big confidence boost, ‘Prosser said.
“As we head into the Prairie View meet, we know the competition level will continue to increase as the championship meets at the end of the season gets closer,” Prosser said. “Another seven personal best performances this week is a good sign of things to come.”
