The Van-Far track and field team’s season came to an end this past week after no one advanced past the Class 2, District 2 meet held in Louisiana.
Breanna Gollaher led the Lady Indians by finishing the 800 meters with a personal best time of 3:01. She also participated in the 100 and 200 meters.
Autumn Cross tied a personal best mark in the 400 meters in 1:07. She struggled in the long jump after leaping 11’7”, far below a personal best mark of 13’6”. She also competed in the 100 meters.
Due to an injury, Chevi Windland did not participate in districts. Two sport athlete Logan Boyd was the boys team’s lone competitor at the end of the season.
“Chevi was advised not to compete in districts as she has three more years and will have plenty of opportunities to advance,” said Van-Far head coach Blake Logan. “Throughout the season all members improved nearly every meet in each event. Chevi is an up and coming star on the track and with some training could become a state qualifier. Autumn Cross made huge strides with her form throughout the year and was very competitive in the latter part of the season. Breanna showed a ton of heart running multiple races throughout the season. Logan Boyd is a very talented athlete and could do a lot of damage in competition with more practice time. He has not had the time to practice since baseball takes up most of his time.”
