Central Heights track limits entries in PV meet

By The Herald Staff

It was time for a small breather for the Central Heights track athletes Thursday at the Prairie View meet.

It was the second meet of the week, so coach Troy Prosser limited the entries.

Jarod Crawford passes the baton to David Craft during the boys 3,200-meter relay. The Vikings won the race with a season-best time.

“Going into the Prairie View meet, we have had gone with a heavy work load for most athletes all season long but decided to go a little light on events for some after doubling up with meets this week,” he said. “With the lighter workload, the team was able respond very well, racking up another 10 personal-best performances. Five of them coming in the field events is a good boost for the throwers/jumpers and keeps them hungry for more.”

The boys 3,200-meter relay continued to shine with its performance.

“On the track, the boys 3,200 relay lowered their time for the third straight meet and Lily [Meyer] has been adjusting very quickly as she has shifted to some shorter races. At this point in the season, recovery becomes even more important than usual and the next meet at NE Arma will be one final test before the championship season begins.”
