WHEATLAND – The Guernsey-Sunrise track team did very well last Saturday in the Wheatland Invitational track meet that featured only one school participating that was smaller in size than GHS.
There were nine schools competing in the meet, a larger field than expected, but due to Douglas’ track meet being canceled on Friday, many of the teams who were supposed to participate there jumped into Saturday’s competition.
The Vikings placed eighth for the girls with five team points and seventh for the boys with 48 points in overall team competition.
“I am very proud of the efforts of the entire team,” said head varsity track coach Doug Horton. “Almost every athlete improved from their last performance or performed just as well. Justin Malcom’s six-foot High Jump was very impressive. Our boys 4x100 pre-qualified to state as did Justin.”
