Gage Willenbrink was 2nd in the high jump with a jump of 5’6”. On the running side, Noah Foster was 5th in the 400m running a PR and state qualifying time of 52’67 and the girl’s 4×2 Relay of Moli Luong, Peyton Johnson, Erika Williams, and Miley Blanton took 5th running a 6-second PR to advance to the state meet!

Congratulations to them all! It’s not an easy district to get through to state, and they all rose to the occasion! Nice job Spartans!”
