Running for First!

Madison Winfrey, Sports Writer

On April 23rd, West traveled to Pikeview for the first meet of the season. The meet resulted in the boys’ team placing 6th and the girls’ team placing 4th. Serenity Donaldson placed 1st in the 100 meter dash, and Raven Dove and Savannah Mccutcheon placed 1st in the 4×200 relay and the 4×100 relay. 

Greenbrier West participated in the Richwood-Pocahontas County Invitational on April 27th. The boys’ team finished in 6th place and the girls’ finished in 4th place. Serenity Donaldson placed 1st in the 100 meter dash; the girls’ team placed 1st in the 4×200 meter relay and Meagan Poticher  placed first in discus.

At the Laidley Field meet on April 30th, our boys’ team placed 11th while the girls’ team placed 10th. On May 7th, West again competed in the Laidley Field meet which resulted in both teams placing 11th.

On May 11th, the girls’ and boys’ teams both placed 5th in the Nicholas County meet. Logan Shrewsberry, Ty Nickell, and Kadin Parker finished in 1st in the 4×100 meter relay.

Our track team has really been amazing so far, given the circumstances. They had to quickly put together a team, so this is most of the runners, first year in track. I can’t wait to see how far they go. Good luck!
