"Our athletes performed well today. We were able to qualify many on which should give us a chance at some big points at the state meet. We had several in a few events who ended up 5th and just missed qualifying. We feel for those kids as their season comes to an end but are proud of their accomplishments and how well they did this year. School records continue to be set this season, as Dagen Kenslow broke his own record in the Javelin. Natalie Stewart broke teammate Brooke Chitwood's school record in the women's Javelin. The 4 x 100 meter men's relay team broke their own record set at the conference meet and the girls 4 x 200 meter relay team continued to lower their record! It was a great day for the Zizzers. Im extremely proud of those who qualified on to state as well as those who didn't make it. These athletes represented our school and community very well,” said Coach Greg Dixon.

The Zizzers will depart Zizzer Stadium at 10:30 a.m. Thursday and everyone is welcome to come send off these great athletes.
