The Dade County High School Wolverine track teams traveled back to Gordon Central last week to compete in the AA Sectional Regions 5, 6, 7, and 8 track meet. Qualifiers at this meet advance to the AA state finals at McEachern High School.

The Wolverines had two qualifiers for the state meet. Stella Henry qualified in the 100 Meter Dash with a time of 12.84 and the 300 Meter Hurdles with a time of 47.51, taking first place in the hurdles.

The Wolverine’s Ian Byrd also qualified for the state meet in the pole vault. He placed fifth with a distance of 11 feet.
Other Wolverines who did not qualify for the state meet but had good finishes, some personal best, were:

Girls 4 X 100 Meter Relay, 11th with a time of 54.09; Boys 4X100 Meter Relay, 12th with a time of 46.69; Boys 800 Meter Run, Noah Hodges, 11th, 2:08.90; 3200 Meter Run, Daniel Goff, 9th, 10:44.18; Boys 4X400 Meter Relay, 13th, 3:56.16; Boys 1600 Meter Run, Daniel Goff 10th, 4:54.132

DCHS had one of its best years in track and field and have a bright future with several competitors returning next year. All the participants and coaches are to be commended for their hard work.

Good luck to the state qualifiers as they travel to McEachern High School in Powder Springs, May 13-15 for the state championships.
