SC/W Track team competes at Regions

CAYCEE GUINN shows determination to win the 400 meter race at the Region track meet. She came in second and earned a chance to race at the State meet.

The Sanborn Central/Woonsocket Track Team traveled to Chester to compete in the Region 4B track meet on Thursday, May 17. Besides qualifying for state by breaking the time standard set by the SDHSAA during a sanctioned meet during the year, the top two place winners at Regions also qualify.

SC/W had two participants qualify for state. Trinity Boschee qualified in the 300-Meter Hurdles with a second place finish and a personal best of 51.03, and Caycee Guinn finished second in the 400-Meter Dash with a time of 1:04.64. Boschee and Guinn will compete Friday in Rapid City. Guinn will compete in the 400-Meter Dash preliminaries at 1:50 p.m., and Boschee has 300 Meter preliminaries at 2:15 p.m. (Mountain Time). If they both win their heat or have one of the top times, they will compete in finals on Saturday.  Guinn comes in seeded 11th out of 16, and Boschee is ninth out of 18 participants. 

Overall, the boys finished eighth with 36 team points, and the girls compiled 55 points to finish sixth.  

“Region 4 was very competitive and we knew we had our work cut out for us to get our athletes to state. Trinity Boschee ran a perfect race and ran three seconds faster than in any other high school meet this year to punch her ticket. Caycee Guinn came in with one of the top times in the field, but had the second best 400 girl in the state in her heat. The coaches talked strategy with her and she executed it to perfection. She just kept up with that girl as long as she could and outran the rest of the field.  We had a few relays get close, but just couldn’t quite get in the top two. Spens Schlicht finished third in the 300-Meter hurdles, Kaylee White finished third in shot put, and our boys 4×800 team also finished third, but we couldn’t be prouder of the effort put forth by the whole team.”
