Making a State-ment
JOHNSTON — Despite what was another rainy day for most of us here in Iowa, the district track meets went off without a hitch, and several Newton Senior High School boys and girls advanced to the state finals in Des Moines.
For the girls, there were several top-ranked competitors coming into this meet, and four of them were able to secure automatic qualifying spots for the state finals. Others will have to wait until Saturday to find out if their times were able to place them high enough to quality. Coach Rachel Tomas is looking forward to watching her girls compete in the state finals.
“I’m very happy with how the girls gave so much effort today,” Tomas said “The girls worked hard. Their work ethic in general is fantastic. It has really been quality. For the ones advancing to state, I want them to continue to improve. Obviously, it is a goal for us to have all of them place. They all have a very competitive attitude, and that’s going to help them against the bigger schools.”
