MCHS track places 8th at state
The Moffat County High School boys varsity track and field team placed eighth out of 48 teams in the 4A state track and field championships Thursday through Saturday in Lakewood.
The team sent seven competitors, as well as senior Dale Nakai, who won the 3,200-meter run at regionals but was bumped from competing at state, as an alternate.
MCHS took two titles at the meet, including the 800-meter run by senior Alfredo Lebron — finishing .03 seconds behind his school record — and the 4-by-800-meter relay, made up of Lebron and fellow seniors Johnny Landa, Rene Molina and Miguel Molina, which set a new school best.
Lebron also competed in the 1,600-meter run Saturday, finishing 10th out of 18, and was part of the 13th place 4-by-400-meter relay with Landa, Miguel Molina and junior Erik Silva-Tarango.
Also competing for the Bulldogs were seniors Andy Browning in the 200-meter dash, placing 12th, and Garrett Spears in the shot put, finishing fifth.
