Muleshoe Track @ Region I Meet (4-29&30-2016)
“Well, our athletes wrapped up their track season this weekend at the Region I Meet in Abilene,” said Mule track coach Wes Wood. “They represented Muleshoe extremely well. It is pretty amazing watching how we compete, especially against the level of competition that we saw. We should all be super proud of our Mules and Lady Mules.”
None of the Lady Mules or Mules will be advancing to the Texas State Meet in Austin but the Mules did score points in three events and were in the top eight places in one.
Aaryn Ross led the Mules with a fourth place finish in the 200-meter dash with a time of 22.60 seconds. Ross took fifth in the high jump by clearing a height of five feet 10 inches. Joe Waggoner placed sixth in the pole vault with a height of 12-6.
Evan Paez ran a personal best time of 4:46.30 in the 1600-meter run to place eighth. The 4x200-meter relay team of Beto Diaz, Dagen Dunham, Danny Campos and Ross finished seventh with a time of 1:32.14.
None of the Lady Mules made the finals at the Region I Meet.
“Coach (John) Jay and I want to thank all the Lady Mule and Mule fans for their support during track season,” continued Wood. “It makes a real difference for our athletes.”
