Track & Field

Kayhi’s track & field team will compete in Sitka’s annual invitational meet over the weekend. Due to prom, many seniors will be staying behind, and will not attend this meet.
Top runner for the Kayhi girls team, “Sitka particularly isn’t my favorite trip because of their dirt track, but that isn’t going to stop us this weekend. Our plan is to go score as many points as possible.” sophomore Rachel Knight said.
Freshman runner Brent Capps is excited for his weekend in Sitka. “It’s going to be good for us to go to a meet without our captains. We’re going to get to experience being on our own more and it will be a good change of pace with regions soon approaching.”
The meet will start at 1 p.m. on Friday and 10 a.m on Saturday.
Thirty athletes from Kayhi will be competing in Sitka over the weekend along with 5 teams from Juneau Douglas, Thunder Mountain, Haines, Sitka, and Ketchikan.
