MEEKER I The Barone Middle School track athletes completed their 2015 season on Saturday in Baggs.
Made up of seventh and eighth graders, the team competed at Coal Ridge, Rangely and also had a fun night of relays in Craig on Thursday.

The all-relay meet included events such as the hurdle shuttle and a throwers’ relay, won by Meeker, in which they carried a shotput as a baton.
This season, a few records will be added to the BMS board. They include Megan Shelton’s shot put throw of 35-4, Gracie Bradfield’s 200-meter dash time of 27.85 as well as the 4×100-meter relay team of Kassie Luce, Krissie Luce, Megan Shelton and Gracie Bradfield with a time of 54.13.
According to the coaches, the team worked very hard every week putting forth great effort to improve themselves.
“It has been a lot of fun watching the kids grow stronger each week,” coach Heather Burke said. “Meeker placed well in many events this year, and we were pleased to see several personal bests during the season.”
