2017 TrackTown Youth League Begins
On March 28th, 50 athletes came out to Hermiston High School to participate in the first meet of the TrackTown Youth League season. It was a blustery day, but that didn’t stop the group of athletes from giving it their all! Meet highlights included eight athletes breaking six minutes in the 1500 meter race, led by 12-year-old Taran Flynn of West Richland with a time of 5:22, and 12-year-old Lauren Thompson of Kennewick with a time of 5:39. In the field events, 14-year-old DJ Wilson of Hermiston finished the day with the two longest marks of the meet, an impressive 14' 6" in the long jump and 124' 5" in the Turbojav.
Complete Hermiston meet results can be found here and photos can be viewed here.
For those who were unable to attend the Hermiston meet, the La Grande meet date has been set for May 17th at Eastern Oregon University.
