State Track - Saturday

Hanna's Shane McGraw wins the boys Class 1A 400-meter dash during the Wyoming State High School Track and Field Championships last year in Casper.


MOST QUALIFIERS: Upton with 34. After finishing 11th in 2A last year, the Bobcats are looking to make a statement in their return to 1A.

EAST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Upton ... the Bobcats scored a combined 53 points in pole vault and shot put, and got points across the board to easily defeat Hanna.

WEST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Burlington ... Jarom Davidson won the 800, 1600 and 3200 and Dontae Garza finished first in both vertical jumps and second in the 100 and high jump to help the Huskies hold on for a 129.5-129 victory over Cokeville.

2018 CHAMPION: Farson.

WHO TO WATCH: Samuel Schneider, Saratoga. The senior is the two-time defending state champion in the high jump, and his mark of 6 feet, 6 inches is just 2 inches off the 1A state record.

EVENT TO WATCH: 200 ... Hanna’s Conor McGraw is back to defend his title, but he’ll have to hold off twin brother Shane, Western Heritage’s Kaden Dower and Upton’s Jayden Caylor and Dillon Barritt to do so.


MOST QUALIFIERS: Cokeville with 39. The three-time defending state champs have no entrants in either the 100 or 200 but have five in both of the hurdles.

EAST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Kaycee ... with Tinley Pierson winning both hurdles, Tara Elmer the 800 and three relay titles, the Lady Bucs eased past runner-up Hanna.

WEST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Cokeville ... the Panthers had five individual champions, won two relay titles and scored 31 points in each of the hurdle races to more than double second-place Farson.

2018 CHAMPION: Cokeville.

WHO TO WATCH: Kaelyn Riley, Lingle-Fort Laramie. The senior has 1A’s best marks in the 100, 200 and triple jump and is No. 2 in the long jump.

EVENT TO WATCH: 300 hurdles ... can Kaycee’s Tinley Pierson, Farson’s Maizee Thoren or Dubois’ Rheannon Hawk break through and prevent Cokeville from sweeping the top 3-4 spots on the podium?
