It was a disappointing trip to Omaha last week for the Broncos.
Heading to state with times in contention for medals, the W-P teams returned home with just one.
Jacob Maris’ 3200 meter run time of 10:24.32 was slower than his time from districts, but good enough for seventh place. Garrett Perlinger of Paxton and Tanner Clough of Wallace finished second and seventh, respectively.
The boys 3200 meter relay was six seconds slower than districts, running a 8:41.44 in Omaha. Paxton won the event and finished in second place in the Class D team standings.
The girls’ team also struggled with none of the team making it to finals. Emma Skelton improved on her 300 hurdles time, running a 50.18. Skelton ran a 17.01 in the 100 hurdles.
Abbie Fanning finished the 100 meter dash in 13.45, the 200 in 27.65 and the 400 in 1:03.93.
Sydnee Harchelroad ran the 800 meter run in 2:42.99.
The 1600 meter relay was 11 seconds slower than at districts, finishing with a time of 4:32.19 at the state meet.
