Heading on to Sectionals!

The RHHS Track & Field team traveled to Midway on Saturday, May 6th to begin the state qualifying series. At the district meet, a top four finish or better is required to advance to the next round of competition. Coaches Damon Green and Ashley Arwood agree that all athletes competed to the best of their ability and to the high level that is expected of them. At the conclusion of the meet Coach Green said, “The team did everything they were supposed to do today.” In all, 10 Tigers qualified to take the track in Camdenton, MO on Saturday, May 13. From there, the top four competitors in each event will advance to the state track meet held on May 19th & 20th in Jefferson City.
A school record also fell on Saturday. Senior Peyton Walton and Sophomore Taylor Coonce both threw the javelin farther than the old record of 88′ 8″ held by Coach Arwood. The two went back and forth, but Taylor eventually ended up setting the new school record with a throw of 96′ 3″. They had been chasing the record all reason, both coming within only a few feet of it multiple times this year. Coach Arwood was happy that they were both able to meet their goal for the season. She said, “The only thing better than holding a school record is coaching the athlete that breaks it.”
The sectional meet will be held this Saturday in Camdenton with a start time of 10:00am. Come support the Tigers as they compete for their spot at state!
