By virtue of their own performances this season, three members of the Tonganoxie High track and field team have earned the right to compete in the 85th annual Kansas Relays.

Senior Tyler Stockman, junior Jenny Whitledge and sophomore Haley Griffin will all be in action Friday at KU's Memorial Stadium.

Stockman will compete in the shot put at 6:30 p.m. His throw of 49-4 on April 3 at the Lansing Invitational currently ranks as the 22nd longest mark in the state, and the seventh among Class 4A athletes.

Prior to the season, Stockman took his talents to Normal, Ill., to compete in the USAT Youth Indoor Championships. He broke his personal record at the meet with a throw of 50-8.75.

Whitledge and Griffin will both take part in the high jump at 5:30 p.m. Whitledge, the reigning state champion in the event, recently broke the THS record with a jump of 5-6.25 at the Tonganoxie Invitational. Her record-breaking mark ranks third in the state and second in Class 4A.

Whitledge also qualified in the long jump — an event in which the broke the school record last season. That event is set for 11 a.m. on Saturday. She tied her own record with a distance of 17-2 at the Chieftains' home meet.

Griffin took eighth as a freshman in last year's state meet. She won the Lansing Invitational with a season-high jump of 5-4.25 — a mark that ranks 10th in the state and third in 4A.
