Poth sets records at regional
Members of the Poth Pirates track and field team gather for a group photo. The Pirates had another great year and sent several athletes to the Region IV meet.
CONVERSE -- It was another great year for the Poth High School track and field team, and Head Coach Joe McKinney took another sizable group to the Region IV meet at Judson High School last weekend.
In girls competition, sophomore Alyssa Kallies led the way as she finished second overall in the high jump. Kallies’ mark of 5 feet, 7 inches was a new school record, and qualified her for the state track and field meet to be held Friday and Saturday, May 10-11, at Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.
Another exciting moment for the Pirettes came in the 4x100-meter relay, as Kallies, Kelli Kolodziej, Alyssa Kruse, and Micah Weaver set another school record in the prelims with a blazing time of 50.55 seconds. The team went on to finish fifth in the finals.
In other action, the team of Kallies, Kolodziej, Kruse, and Weaver also ran in the 4x200-meter race; Kruse competed in the triple jump; and Lacie Weilbacher and McKayla Maha represented Poth in the pole vault.
In boys competition, Blake Lyssy led the Pirates with his fourth-place finish in the long jump at a distance of 21 feet, 0.25 inches. Also representing Poth at the regional meet were Dillon Zaiontz in the discus, Thomas Krawietz in the long jump, and Thomas Rodriguez and Spencer Flieller in the 800-meter run.
