Going into Thursday’s 4A state track finals at Jefferson County Stadium in Lakewood, Moffat County High School track coach Todd Trapp was confident his 4-by-800 meter relay team was about to embark on something special. “They get really excited about coming down to the state meet because they get to compete against the top people in the state,” the coach said. “And coming down here after breaking the school record was exciting for them.” A week earlier seniors Alfredo Lebron, Rene Molina, Miguel Molina and Johnny Landa scorched through the Western Slope League meet in Grand Junction taking first place in the regional relay race, which boosted the Bulldogs track team to a second-place WSL finish overall. The team crossed the finish line in 7 minutes and 56.62 seconds, breaking the eight-minute barrier and destroying the previous school record by a full eight seconds.
