Fourteen Tonganoxie High track athletes are headed to state after qualifying at a Class 4A regional meet at Beatty Field on Friday.

Six girls and eight boys will represent the Chieftains in 15 events at the state meet in Wichita next weekend.

THS had regional champions in four events. Jake Willis set a new school record in the boys pole vault with a jump of 14 feet, Andie Jeannin won the girls 800-meter race, Jenny Whitledge won the girls high jump with a new personal record of 5-5 and the boys 4x400 relay team of Bret Koch, Tyler Woolworth, Jeremy Carlisle and DJ Lindsay finished first in the evening’s final event.

A top-four finish in any event equals state qualification at a regional and Tonganoxie had four second-place finishers — including two in the same event. Dylan Jacobs and Adrian Whittington tied each other for runner-up in the boys high jump with marks of 6 feet. Senior sprinter DJ Lindsay finished second in the 400-meter dash and Dannie Oelschlaeger was second in the girls pole vault with a mark of 8 feet.

Third-place finishers for the Chieftains’ girls were Abby Eisman in the pole vault, Domino Grizzle in the shot put, Whitledge in the 400-meter dash and the 4x400 relay team of Eisman, Whitledge, Jeannin and Cristina Rubio.

The boys had three third place-finishers: Lindsay in the 200-meter dash, Carlisle in the 300-meter hurdles and Dylan Scates in the triple jump.

THS athletes locked up the final state-qualifying spots in three events. Rubio got fourth in the 400-meter dash, Grizzle was fourth in the discus and the boys 4x100 relay team of Koch, Willis, Carlisle and Lindsay finished fourth.

The state track meet begins this coming Friday at Cessna Stadium, in Wichita.

Host of a Regional meet and you don't post ALL of the meet results, just the Tonganoxie results. Seriously bad reporting. Very sad.
