Whitley County track and field athletes ready themselves for state after weekend region meet
The Whitley County High School track and field team traveled to Somerset Saturday, May 14, to take part in the 2016 Region 7 AAA meet at Pulaski County High School.
The Colonels had two automatic qualifiers for next weekend’s KHSAA state championship meet – Tanner Bryant in boys pole vault, and the boys 4×800-meter relay team of Keaton Logan, Adam Petrey, Josh Richardson and Tyler Lawson.
