RANGELY I The Rangely High School Track and Field team had its last regular meet of the season on Saturday at Cedaredge. It was a meet with lots of new personal bests and some heartbreak as some athletes hoping to have one more meet weren’t able to qualify for state.
The Rangely track and field program will be taking four boys and one girl to the state track meet.
Senior Kaulan Brady will be leading the team in the 100-meter dash, high jump and long jump.
Junior Troy Allred will participate in the triple jump.
Sophomore Patrick Scoggins qualified for state in the 100 dash, 200-meter dash, 400-meter dash and the 800-meter run. He will not run the 100 because of conflicting times in other events.
Brennan Noyes, also a sophomore, will be jumping in the high jump and triple jump.
For the girls, Katelyn Brown, a sophomore, will be competing in the triple jump.
At Cedaredge, Phalon Osborn started the Panther girls off with a new personal best in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 18.83. Next to race for the girls was the 4×200-meter relay team made up of Aspen Rhea, Phalon Osborn, Katelyn Brown and Lindzey Thacker, who were able to improve their time to 1:55.06, but not quite enough to qualify for state. Raelynn Norman ran the 1600-meters in a time of 6:15.13 then ran the 800 and got a new personal best of 2:47.36.
Aspen Rhea also got a new personal best in the 200 dash of 29.44. The girls were able to put together a 4×400-meter relay made up of Kassidee Brown, Phalon Osborn, Raelynn Norman and Aspen Rhea. They placed eighth with a time of 4:58.59.
In the field events, Makenze Cochrane was the only girl to get a mark in the discus with a throw of 84-2, and then she threw a 29-9 in the shot put.
