Ridge View advances track events to state meet

Ridge View track athletes will compete in five events at the state track and field meet in Des Moines, which runs from this Thursday through Saturday. The Ridge View/River Valley girls will compete in two class 2A events while the Ridge View boys are entered in two class 1A events.

The Ridge View teams are in separate classes due to sharing of girls’ track with River Valley.

Boys

Ridge View qualified for state in the 100-meter, 200-meter and 4x100 relay races, based on having one of the best times in those events statewide. Jesse Coleman was part of all three events.

Girls

Ridge View/River Valley qualified two events, 800-meter run and distance medley, for this week’s class 2A state meet based on their placing or time at the class 2A state-qualifying meet in Ida Grove Friday. As a team, the girls placed sixth with 69 points. Treynor won the team title with 110 points.
