Woods Track qualifies five more for states

The Woods Track Club continued its success last weekend at Saginaw Valley State University. The Woods qualified five more athletes for the state meet. Faith Weide won the shot put by over a foot (38-11). The 4×400 meter relay team with Madi Szymanski, Tiffany Foster, Carmen Dellar, and Maddy Boyd surpassed the qualifying mark by 10 seconds running 4:21.66. The girls returned 10 minutes later to post the sixth fastest Distance Medley Relay time in the state. The team of Szymanski, Foster, Molly Dickinson, and Boyd finished with a time of 13:05.57.

Others who just missed the qualifying standard were, Kolten Goebel who was a mere 2 inches off in the triple jump (32-10). Josh Smith was 0.3 seconds from qualifying in the mile run (4:35.3).

“It is always tough missing the qualifying mark by so little, but I am confident their hard work and determination will pay off in the next meet,” Woods coach Kolin Ghidoni said.
