Wheaton track competes up, breaks school records

Last week, the Wheaton Track team traveled to Pierce City on April 13, and East Newton on April 15. Both meets consisted of larger classes, but Wheaton still performed well and took home medals. Four new school records were broken by Zane Johnson and Chad Meyer at Pierce City, and then again at East Newton. Johnson was part of the State 2019 4x800 meter relay team that took 16th, and he is looking to peak again for this year’s drive to State. Meyer was challenged last week at the East Newton meet. However, he continues to set new personal records. The Bulldogs are expecting to come home with more medals at Conference later this week Wednesday at Thomas Jefferson. “I am confident that we will be sending several people to this year’s Districts on May 8 in Reed Springs,” said Larry Meyer, Wheaton track coach. “Next week, we are competing at Monet on Tuesday, and Mt. Vernon on Thursday. These meets will keep us limber and ensure that we are at our best for Districts and Sectionals during the next four weeks.

“With a heavy heart I must announce that COVID-19 has hit our team. It has knocked out four of our athletes from future track meets. I want them all to know that I have enjoyed coaching them this year, and appreciate all their efforts and wish them success in the future. Stay safe and take care.”
