‘In pretty good shape’

By Staff | May 17, 2019

Rugby High’s track and field teams finished their regular season this week “in pretty good shape for both regionals and state,” according to Coach Scott Grochow.

“The biggest thing might be the weather,” the coach wrote in an email to the Tribune early this week as he looked forward to Friday’s regional meet at Rugby High.

“We have had a tradition of doing fairly well at both of those meets, and think there is a great chance for us to do the same again this year,” he noted.

Grochow said several athletes on both the boys’ and girls’ squads have done well this season. “I think we have a lot of different girls and boys who could have great meets (in regionals and state competition),” he wrote. “Don’t know if I could single out one or two people.”

The final regular season meet, hosted by Rugby for Velva Monday saw several state qualifiers among Panther athletes, continuing a trend all season.
