  The Viqueens closed out the 2019 track season scoring 24 points at their very tough Regional Meet at Griswold last Friday. Coach Subbert would like to think the parents of the girls and the other fans that supported the team throughout the season. He would also like to thank his six team members for all their efforts and congratulate them on a great season.

  Special congratulations to Tara Peterson who will represent Stanton at the State Track Meet this week. Tara broke her own school record at the Regional Meet in the 400 hurdles running a time of 67.34 seconds. She will run the 400 meters in Des Moines on Thursday and the 400 hurdles on Friday. Great job, Tara!

High School Boys Track

  The varsity finished their season in Griswold last Friday night for the state qualifying meet. Despite several personal bests, no one qualified for the state meet this year. The team had fun working hard all season and will be posting new personal bests in the weight room as well over the next 2 weeks. We will have many talented and younger athletes returning next year, but we'll miss our 4 seniors. I would like to thank the seniors who kept things fun and provided great leadership: Logan Herbert's friendly smile and his photo finish in the 400M Dash! Thomas Bates in his personal growth and his encouragement of others in the 110 HH! Brett Silva was our fireplug blasting out of the blocks for great starts to 3 of our relays! Donnie Weis led with contagious enthusiasm, 100% effort--100% of the time, and was always encouraging others! Thanks to all for a memorable season!

Junior High Boys Track

  The Junior High boys track team finished their season Monday night at the Corner Conference Track Meet. With 4 boys gone for various reason, the remaining 10 boys competed extremely well and came away with conference champions in 3 relay events and multiple 3rd and 2nd place finishes as well. The 1st place finishers were the 1600 Medley Relay team of Nolan Grebin, DJ Most, Jonan Wookey, and Kaiden Foster, the 800 Medley team of DJ Most, Jonan Wookey, Damian Meek, and Kaiden Foster and finally the 4x400 team of Jonan Wookey, Kaiden Foster, Josh Martin, and Damian Meek. Josh Martin placed 2ndin High Jump, 200 Hurdles, and 100 Hurdles and Jonan Wookey finished 3rd in Discus. Preston Carpenter, Axel King, Brody Holmes, and Evan Hopf also all scored points for the team and recorded personal bests in many of their events.
