HUERFANO, LAS ANIMAS COUNTIES — With one week remaining to determine the field, several changes have been made in the overall standings, with many of them coming from the 1A Invitational Meet last weekend. (See related story). With faster times already being posted, the final field will be determined May 15th. The WJ will have the complete list in next week’s special track edition with the list of qualifiers.
The listing this week includes only the top 18 in the rankings and this is the presumed list of qualifiers. Several athletes were ranked 19th-20th, but this late in the game, it’s not good enough. Those close to the bar need to dig deep and continue to put forth their best efforts as little as a half a second or one inch will determine if you go to state next week or watch from the sidelines.
***OOPS: A correction from our state track results. The La Veta boys 4X800 relay team placed 5th in the finals. The team was comprised of Rio Sciacca (Sr), Hehr Haught (Sr), Trevor Warren (Jr) and Eric Morgan (So).
