They say the early bird gets the worm. Well Vista Peak has a few early birds already in the running for a state qualifying spot.
For those of you not familiar with the process for qualifying for the state track and field championship in Colorado its actually quite simple. There are no sectional qualifying meets or regionals to go through. On Saturday May 12th at the stroke of midnight the top 18 athletes in each event are state qualifiers.
That’s it! Sit in the top 18 in your event or be one of the top 18 relay teams and you’re in. We are one qualifying meet into the season and its early but VP Track and Field has a few athletes sitting nicely in the top 18. With some hard work and a little luck we hope that these and other VP athletes will be still standing in the top 18 when the clock strikes 12 and lucky Sunday the 13th rolls in. Here are our current athletes in the top 18.
