Over 100 youths from 14 communities participated on May 5th at the local Hershey Track Meet directed by Cherokee Parks & Recreation and supported by Casey's General Stores.
First place finishers are eligible to compete at the Hershey State Meet in Marshalltown on June 12th where they may qualify regionally for a trip to the National Hershey Track Meet in Hershey, Pennsylvania in August.
This meet would not be possible without the dedication of our volunteers and we thank them for their willingness to help. We appreciate the use of George Hicks Field and especially thank Neil Phipps for his assistance. A big thank you to meet director Paul Fuhrman, who served in dual roles as our starter also. Congratulations and good luck to our state qualifiers.
