Track Coaches Thrilled With Charger Performances at State Qualifier
It is pretty obvious that the ACGC track mentors were happy with their team's performances last Thursday at the district track meet at Van Meter, also known as the state qualifier.
"There is not a whole lot that is more exciting than a district track meet," Mosbach said. "For us to qualify boys in eight events or be involved in a season's best relay, and break a couple of school records in the process, exciting might be an understatement. I cannot express in words how truly proud i am of all of the young men on our team. They never quit working and never quit competiing. That is why we had the success that we did."
Mosback got specific when he mentioned the individuals who qualified for the state meet. "In all we qualified Clay Billheimer in the 800 and 1600 meter runs; Noah Nelson in the 3200, 1600, and 800 meter runs; Caden Wardyn in the long jump; the shuttle hurdle team consisting of Cole Boyer, Gabe Rowley, Caden Wardyn, and Grady Laabs; and the distance medley relay consisting of Dylan Soper, Justin Plowman, Caden Wadyn, and Clay Billheimer."
Girls' coach Colin Shawgo did not have as much to say, but was clearly pleased when he said, "I am just happy that we qualified so may girls and saw so much growth through the season for them."
The compete list of when each Charger will perform at the state meet is included in a separate article on this website.
