Tuesday, May 9, Triton welcomed 1,000 athletes from 17 schools for the Section True Team Championships. In this meet, every school gets two entries into each event, and every finisher scores points for their team based on their placing; the winning teams advance to the state True Team meet on May 20.
These meets can’t happen without lots of help and community support; the Triton Track and Field coaches would like to extend a huge thank you to all who played a role in making it happen. That includes our administration, grounds crew, and all the folks that stepped up to help work the meet. We have some of the best people and facilities in southeast Minnesota!
The Cobras had several excellent performances in the meet, including many personal records set by our athletes. Top-6 performances came from the girls 4x200 relay (4th - Romina Medina, Averee Henslin, Maddi Maes, and Olivia Weber), MacKenzie Geers (3rd in the 400), Ava Cummings (6th in the 800), the girls 4x400 relay (6th – Hanna Strom, Ava Cummings, Olivia Weber, and MacKenzie Geers), Hanna Strom (2nd in the HJ), Olivia Weber (4th in the HJ) and Pierce Petersohn (3rd in the HJ). The girls scored 546.5 team points for an 8th place team finish while the boys scored 399 team points.
The Cobras will be back in action at the Gopher Conference Championships at USC Saturday, May 13 before hosting our Varsity Invitational Friday, May 19. Join us at Triton on the 19th starting at 4:30pm to check out the action!
We’re always looking for folks to help at track and field meets! If this is something you might be interested in, please contact head coach Kim Swanson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
