Kayhi track will bring 20 athletes to compete at Regions in Juneau this weekend. After a full season several athletes have shown their potential. Sophomore Erika Rodanhisler has finished first in an event in every meet this year. Kayhi is coming off of a weekend where they had five first place finishes.
“I’m looking forward to getting into the competitiveness that Regions has to offer,” sophomore Joseph Rhoads said. “I’m looking to work in the ring for a better personal record in my events.”
Regions is more intense because for some athletes, nerves take over.
“I’m really nervous about the competition this year,” said Rodanhisler. “Everyone is so great and competitive. I just want to do my best and enjoy some of my last races for the Kayhi team.”
Last year, both boys and girls teams finished second at Regions and sent eight athletes to State. Half of the State team last year returned for this track season.
