For the Rogers track team taking state was an exhilarating ride. The lady mountie track team won their 2nd straight State indoor track title this year. Winning by a  ¾ of a point, the runners have been challenged the entire way through. New titles and records were set at the competition. Notably, the 4×800 Relay where Ali Nachtigal, Olivia Breezele, Evelyn Cardona, and Emily Efurd won 1st place and were .01 seconds away from setting a new state record. Together with the 4×400 Relay which set a New School record and received 2nd place by Grace Risenhoover, Ashlyne Silcott, Skylur Patrick, and Alexa Wright.

A few runners that were not expected to run ended up doing very well at the meet. “I’m a freshman and I wasn’t really supposed to go but they pulled me up. And we won state. I was really nervous, but I had confidence in myself and my team so whenever they told us that we won by ¾ of a point, I got really happy,” Olivia said.

As the meets come and go for this season, the track stars of Rogers continue to amaze and set even higher expectations for new competitors. Congratulations to all of the hard-working mounties who placed at state. Some of the highest placing runners were, Hannah Martin who placed 1st in the High Jump, Ali Nachtigal that placed 1st in the 2 mile, Grace Risenhoover placed 3rd in the 400 meter. As well as, Anna Jeffcoat who placed 1st in the mile, 3rd place in the 800 meter, 3rd in the 2 mile run, and was awarded 4th best female of the day by scoring 22 points.
