HS Track: Yates Center
The Yates Center track and field team competed in the Pre-State Challenge at Wichita State. The meet brings together some of the best talents in the state to compete against talent that they may not face during the normal season.
Junior distance runner Hadley Splechter along with teammates seniors Jordan Smith, Kobe Forsyth and Colin Bedell competed in the 4×800 relay in the Elites division which is where the top talent from 6A-1A compete. The rest of the Wildcat team competed in the 1-3A section of the meet.
Unsurprisingly, Splechter fought off the states top talent. Splechter notched first-place finishes in both the 1600-meter run (4:30.64) and the 3200-meter run (10:09).
