State Track - Saturday

Laramie's Emmy Johnson clears the final hurdle to win the girls Class 4A 300-meter hurdles during last year's Wyoming State High School Track and Field Championships in Casper.


MOST QUALIFIERS: Sheridan with 36. The Broncs have depth in the sprints, one of the state’s best hurdlers in Alec Riegert and qualified all four relay teams.

EAST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Sheridan ... the Broncs won five individual events and two relays, and had at least three athletes score points in the 100, 200, 400 and 800 to top Natrona County by 48 points.

WEST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Kelly Walsh ... all five of the Trojans’ individual titles came in the field events, including two from Sage Coventry (high jump, triple jump), but they also scored major points in the 100 and 200 to run past Rock Springs.

2018 CHAMPION: Laramie.

WHO TO WATCH: Wyatt Moore, Star Valley. The senior has the state’s fastest times in both the 100 and 200 and could threaten the state records.

EVENT TO WATCH: 100 ... Moore (10.87) and defending state champ Sam Hageman (10.91) from Cheyenne East are the only sprinters to break the 11-second mark this year.


MOST QUALIFIERS: Thunder Basin with 25. The Bolts have the quantity, but probably not the quality to challenge regional champs Laramie and Kelly Walsh or defending state champ Cheyenne Central.

EAST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Laramie ... the Plainsmen won seven individual events and the 4x100 relay to hold off Central.

WEST REGIONAL CHAMPS: Kelly Walsh ... Taylor Rowe (200), Finley Klinger (3200) and Makena Clemens (discus) won individual golds and the 4x100 team finished first to help the Trojans hold on for a 15-point victory over Cody.

2018 CHAMPION: Cheyenne Central.

WHO TO WATCH: Naya Shime, Riverton. The junior won both the long jump and 100 hurdles last year in 3A and has the top marks in 4A in both events this year.

EVENT TO WATCH: Pole vault ... defending state champ Grace Shaffer from Cody is expected to be pushed by Laramie’s Aubry Sanchez and Natrona County’s Kayla Stibley in an event that could have team title implications.
