“Like every district track meet, there were some good things and some major disappointments,” Gering Coach Randy Plummer said. “Our 4 x 800 girls’ team won with a season-best time. Our 4 x 800 boys’ team took 15 seconds off their best time but just missed qualifying. Both our girls and boys 4 x 400 relay teams ran season bests but did not qualify. Keltie Imus placed 2nd in the high jump and qualified for state. Jeff Schmidt placed 3rd in the 300 intermediate hurdles and also qualified. Several athletes were close to qualifying, but the nature of district track is that for some it is the opportunity to compete at state and for others it is a disappointing end to the season.”
