Last Tuesday, the Emery Spartans hosted their only home track meet of the season and nine teams came to town to try and get qualifying times and distances for the upcoming state track meet. Like most meets, team scores are not kept officially as the teams are there to improve their individual performances.
Highlight of the Tuesday meet was Madison Jensen setting a new school record in the high jump with a winning leap of 5'6". Jensen, besides the school record, has also qualified for the state meet and has the second best jump in 3-A. She is behind a jumper from Cedar City that has jumped 5'7".
Other Emery performers have also already qualified for the state meet. Levi Swasey has qualified in the 100 hurdles and has the third fastest time in 3-A. Levi has also qualified in the 300m hurdles and McKay Allred is right behind him but has not qualified so far.
Tyler Killpack has qualified in the 400m run and also the 800m run. Lacey Montgomery has qualified in the 400m race and is close in the 800m. Zac Clement has qualified in the discus, javelin and shot put.
The Emery boy's 1600-medley relay race has the third fastest time in 3-A behind Hurricane and Cedar and has qualified for state. The Emery boys 4x400 relay team also has qualified for state and again has the third fastest time in the state.
