State Track - Thursday

Rawlins' Sydney Thorvaldson wins the Class 3A girls 3200-meter run on May 16 during the Wyoming State High School Track and Field Championships at Harry Geldien Stadium in Casper.

Rawlins track standout Sydney Thorvaldson finished fourth in the 2-mile run at the Brooks PR Invitational in Walla Walla, Washington, on Saturday, bringing her long-running season to a close. Thorvaldson, who has yet to lose a race of 1,600 meters or longer in the state of Wyoming, ran a time of 10 minutes, 20.75 seconds in Walla Walla. She will run as a junior for Rawlins in August. Ericka VanderLende of Michigan won the race in 9:53.00. That came ahead of Katelynne Hart of Illinois — the only runner to beat Thorvaldson at the Arcadia Invitational in April — with 9:56.13, Brynn Brown of Texas (9:57.54) and Thorvaldson. All of their respective times on Saturday set personal records.
