On May 1, our Men’s track team traveled south with their sights set for being able to qualify for the State Track Meet and later made it to Texas A&M Kingsville where Preston Piligrim made a magnificent pole vault of 14 -6 which won a gold medal along with a place on the podium. Our eagle runners also qualified for the finals on the first day. Juan Lopez was the first to compete for day 2 with long jumping where he made it to the finals and took 5th place helping to add to the day 1 total score. Then Justin Veale performed in the 110m hurdles where he got a hard fought 4th place while barely missing the podium. Jayden Palacios and Juan Lopez worked together in the run for the 400m dash against some of the best in the region which had Palacios start out with the first 200m with a strong finish with 2nd place and Lopez who scored second to last but still helped for both of them to hit the 1st & 3rd place in the race. Palacios also claimed the 400m Regional Champion title
