De Soto High School 13th 0

Saturday the DeSoto Boy’s Varsity track team competed in 7 events sending 2 of them to the state meet which will be held in Jefferson City at Jefferson City High School May 24th and 25th. Wyatt Radford placed 2nd in the 400m punching his ticket to state running a 51.35. To close the day the 4x400m relay team, Wyatt Radford, Jared Gardner, Chris Brooks and Kaden Voyles, also punched their ticket placing 4th and also breaking the school record running 3:29.88.
We had many other great performances that just fell short. Dominic Punjani placed 6th in the 100m, 4x200m relay dropped 4 seconds placing 5th, .3 sec away from making it to state. Kory Herget placed 7th in the pole vault jumping 12-6. Daulton Melton placed 5th, falling 10 inches short of making it to state with a throw of 148ft 1 inch. Lastly Jared Gardner had an amazing showing in the 400m placing 5th, .42 sec from making it to state.
I was incredibly proud of these young men’s performances after making the 4 hour trip to West Plains. We are very excited to have earned another week and hope to bring home 2 all state performances. Stay posted to Twitter for updates throughout the meet on Friday.
