The Cowboy track and field team will send seven boys and three girls to compete in the 2011 Colorado State Track and Field State Championships, starting today in JeffCo Stadium in Denver.
This year, in order to qualify for the Colorado State Track and Field Championships, an athlete must post a time or distance in the top 18 in the state as there is no longer a regional meet where the top three times/distances qualify.
Meeker High School freshman Jake Boesch broke the five-minute-mile time barrier last Saturday during a cold and rainy day in Rifle. Several other members of the Meeker track team set personal records (PR). The Meeker boys’ team finished second behind the host team and the girls placed sixth.
