BOYS

MOST QUALIFIERS: Kelly Walsh with 32. The Trojans have three entrants in both the 100 and 200, but a lack of depth in the distance races and the throwing events, combined with only two qualifying relay teams, could be tough to overcome.

EAST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Sheridan. Alec Riegert (200, 300 hurdles) and Maxwel Myers (shot put, discus) both won two titles to help the Broncs hold off Laramie.

WEST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Natrona County. The Mustangs had five individual gold medalists, including three-event winner Hunter Brown, to top Kelly Walsh by 3.5 points.

2017 CHAMPION: Kelly Walsh.

WHO TO WATCH: Albert Steiner, Laramie. The senior won both distance races last year at state and is looking to add the 800 title to his cache this weekend.

EVENT TO WATCH: 300 hurdles ... Sheridan’s Alec Riegert and Kelly Walsh’s Caige McComb are the only runners with times under 40 seconds. The winner could help determine the team champion.

GIRLS

MOST QUALIFIERS: Kelly Walsh with 33. The Trojans’ depth is in the sprints and the throwing events, but Cheyenne Central is close behind with 31. However, the Trojans qualified all four relay teams while the Tribe had just two make the cut.

EAST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Cheyenne Central. The Tribe’s depth — they scored a combined 56 points in the 200, 800 and long jump — carried them to the title.

WEST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Kelly Walsh. The Trojans used a 1-2-3-4 finish in the 100 and victories from Maddison Dedic in the shot put and discus to win the title.

2017 CHAMPION: Gillette.

WHO TO WATCH: Kelly Moodry, Sheridan. The senior won the 200 and 400 while competing at Gillette last year and comes into the weekend with the fastest times in both those events as well as in the 800.

EVENT TO WATCH: 800 ... Seven runners have times ranging from 2:17.56 (Central’s Aubrey Frentheway) to 2:21.73, which should make for a crowded finish line.
