This past weekend wraps up the 2018 track and field season.  And what a weekend it was!!  The girls team finished 4th overall while the boys finished 15th!  This is the best team finish for the girls team at the state championships in the history of Olathe North High School!!!

In addition to the awesome team finishes we had several individual performances to celebrate!  Over the course of the weekend we had 13 podium finishes and 3 of those were STATE CHAMPIONS!!  Our state champions this year was Dana Baker in the Javelin and the Discus!  (It's worth noting that Dana set the state meet record in the Javelin in route to winning the event!) And our other state champion was the girls 4x800 meter relay team of Hannah Rodina, Claire Fuhlhage, Sarah Whitaker, and Zoey Schillinger! (And they set a new school record in winning the event!).  

The rest of our medalists are...
- Cade Heikes; 2nd in the 1600
- Marcus Davis; 3rd in the High Jump
- Joey Guzman; 3rd in the 3200
- Kaiya McKie; 3rd in the 100 hurdles

It was a great weekend to be an Eagle!
