RMS Track Team Competes at State Meet
On May 19th and 20th, the rain poured and the wind blew, but that didn't stop RMS Track Athletes from arriving at the IESA Class AA State Track Meet ready to compete! With temperatures in the 40's on Friday and a storm moving through on Saturday morning, our brave athletes competed against almost 3,000 other middle school students from 267 schools from across the state. This was the grand finale to all the hard work the athletes had put in over the 3 month long track season.
A total of 17 athletes competed at the state meet this year. Three athletes came home with medals: Abby Goff placed 8th in the state in Long Jump, Paige Stees placed 8th in the 1600 meter run, and Grace Johnson placed 8th in the 800 meter run and 5th in the 1600 meter run. The coaching staff is incredibly proud of the hard work put in by all athletes, including: Taylor Harrison, Grace Johnson, Paige Stees, Emma Evans, Mya Thomason, Abby Goff, Marley Beachum, Brock Drengenberg, Skyler Connolly, Brayden Bock, Hunter Gert, Alec Fulton, Jacob Gusse, Michael Ross, Myles Nally, Hayden Steinmeyer, and Jameson Jeffrey.
