PR - Denotes Personal Record Boys 4x800m Relay 14th - Jarod Crawford, David Craft, Carson Wood, Luke Cotter - 9:03.47 Boys 3200m 12th - Luke Cotter - 10:29.02 (PR) Girls 100m hurdles 14th - Taryn Compton - 17.96 Girls 300m hurdles 9th - Taryn Compton - 49.77 Girls 800m 14th - Lily Meyer - 2:40.85 At the conclusion of what can be described as a complicated year for high school sports, the Central Heights Track & Field team finished the season as planned: representing their school and communities against the best in Kansas at the State Track & Field Championships. Although we did not have anyone on the podium, by no means did we come home without several stories of success this season. Senior Luke Cotter set a personal best in the 3200m (10:29.02) with a 12th place finish crossing the line just behind the 4th best runner from the 2020 State Cross Country meet and three spots ahead of the 7th place finisher from the fall. To say Luke had a successful season is an understatement. This was his first season qualifying as an individual and, along with 4x800m teammates Jarod Crawford and David Craft, graduated having previously brought their school the 2018 Cross Country State Championship. The 4x800 (9:03.47) was off of their season best time at regionals but those three boys, along with sophomore Carson Wood, left it all on the track on Saturday finishing with the 14th best team in the State. 50 other schools in 2A cannot claim that high of a placing. In the individual events, Lily Meyer made an incredible push to qualify in the 800 having previously been a 3200m specialist. Falling just short of her personal best time, her 2:40.85 was enough to earn a 14th place finish in her first season running the event. Taryn Compton capped an incredible season as our undisputed leader in the sprints with a 14th place finish in the 100m hurdles (17.96) which was only her third time running the race in over two years. Her specialty this season, however, was the 300m hurdles. Although I know she didn’t finish as high as she had hoped, she was a mere 0.23 seconds from the podium, finishing 9th with a time of 49.77, I know it will keep the fire burning in her and great an even greater drive going forward. If there is anything that can be guaranteed from the entirety of this season, it’s that these underclassmen will use their experiences, successes, and close calls from this season to propel them into an even better campaign in 2022. The guts and determination from these kids and their teammates all season long has me beaming with pride and joy for them. Their experiences may all be unique, but they are all champions in my eyes.
