Scoring 112 points overall, the Webster Area girls track and field team placed third in a pool of seven schools while the boys put up 113 points for fourth at Aberdeen’s Swisher Field May 21.

“Like any region meet, there are good things that happen and disappointing things that happen,” said head coach Bill Sawinsky. “We had several good things happen, in that Jobi (McCreary) – shot, Karie (Lone) – -discus, Olivia (Breske) – high jump, Tyler (Wagner) – discus, Ty (Dunse) – 800, Dawson (Mathison) – 3,200, girls 4x4 and girls 4x8, all qualified for the meet in events that we had not previously qualified.”

Sawinsky and his tracksters hope to go to the state meet in the Black Hills posting as many points as they can. Bearcat fans will have 17 different events they can cheer for. However, before Sawinsky identified hopes for state, he emphasized the downfalls of regions.

“We had some disappointment when Mollie got edged out for a long jump spot on a competitor’s final attempt,” Sawinsky elaborated, “and Whitney – triple jump – was about six inches short of qualifying,”
