The Wheaton track and field teams sent two competitors to the MSHSAA Class 1 State Championship 2021, with one of the athletes competing in three events.

Senior Chad Meyer raced in the 100-meter dash and 200-meter dash, and he threw the javelin for the Bulldogs.

He barely missed medaling in the races, taking ninth place in both with an 11.56 in the 100-meter (0.01 from an eighth-pace medal) and 23.43 in the 200-meter (0.04 from an eighth-pace medal).

Junior Monica Hinojosa threw the shot put for the Lady Bulldogs, coming in 15th place with a throw of 9.34 meters.
