Dixie Track Hungry for District Meet

Both Dixie Track teams have been successful this season and are hoping to finish
 strong in the league and district meets.  Coach Via is in charge of the girls team
 which is young, but athletic. Case in point is pole vaulter Jesselyn Shade who
 is a freshman but has regularly been vaulting over 9’ this season and won league.
 And despite this being only the second time that she ran 400 meters, freshman
 Chelsea Evans won the league in this event. Kristin Hauser is just coming back
 from injury but still managed to be league champ in the 100m hurdles. 
“The freshmen being athletic has really helped us a lot,” stated coach Via,
 “Evans is close to a school record in the 400m dash and last Friday was the
 first time she ran that race. She is real competitive and hates to lose. Junior
 Kristin Hauser is close to record, but then she got injured. And sophomore 
Kylie Hundley has had some success in the long jump, hopefully she can finish 
strong for us. And they pull together as a team, we lost our senior high jumper 
and we had a couple of girls step up to become high jumpers - Sheri Myers has 
done well for us.”  The Dixie girls track would make a good showing in the SWBL 
league meet finishing third.
The Dixie boys track team has been hauling in the hardware this season, winning 
several invitationals this spring. TVS’s Fred Durkle, Preble Shawnee Invitational,
Northridge Invitational, and Dean Schultz Invitational to name a few. “We have won
 every major invitational that we have been in this spring,” stated coach Hughes,
”the team has been real strong this year. Mike Smiley has been our main thrower. 
He threw 45’ today which won the shotput, and that is his best this year. And in 
the disc he is throwing over 140’. 
He continued, “John Isaacs has gone over 6’5” this year. Our long jumper, Ryan 
Jordan, has been over 21’ this year. John Noonan in the pole vault broke the 
school record this year. He went 12’ 10.5” at the Northridge Invitational to 
get the school record, then went 12’11” at the next meet. He’s a junior so 
he has another year to keep breaking it. Ryan Jordan in the 100m got the 
school record, he ran 11.12 at Shawnee; at Northridge he beat it again with 
a 11:07. So he’s been moving.”
Also, “Doogie Hauser, Andrew Barnet, Ryan Jordan, and John Isaacs have 
been getting real close to our school record in the 4X100m relay. That 
team has not been beat all year long. Our 2 miler, William Stapleton, is 
looking real strong. His personal best this year is better than his regional 
time from last year. Dustin Funkhauser,a freshman, has ran in the 53’s this year 
in the 400m, so we are real happy with that. One of the fastest times I have 
ever seen for a freshman. The 4X200m team beat the school record. We were 
district runners up last year, so our goal this year is to win districts and 
to win league. Then you never know what is going to happen at regionals.”
The Dixie boys would be runners up at the league meet. Losing to Milton Union by just one point. Next week the team will be participating in the district meet at Welcome stadium on May 17th and 19th
