Emotional highs and lows, hallelujahs and heartbreaks, and various feelings somewhere in between all describe the outcomes each year at the State Track and Field Championships at the Omaha Burke facilities. The 2016 meet was held on May 20-21 in generally nice weather, although the weather on Friday was cool and drizzly part of the day.
If one qualifies for state, he/she is pretty good. If one medals at state, he/she is exceedingly good. Sometimes unfortunate circumstances derail one’s medal chances before the state meet or during the meet.
Axtell’s boys scored 16.5 points to finish 16th in Class D. High Plains (47), Heartland (44) and North Central (38) were the top three teams in the ‘D’ field. The Cats earned points (and medals) in seven events.
