Several Nolan County high school athletes will compete in regional track meets starting today.
Sweetwater has eight girls and one boy competing in the Region I-3A Track and Field Championships at Texas Tech University’s Fuller Track in Lubbock. Roscoe, Highland and Blackwell have athletes at the Region II-A meet, which is being held at Abilene Christian University. The top two in each event advance to the state meet in Austin on May 13-14.
Sweetwater’s Jayci Shelton (3A girls 300 hurdles) and Roscoe’s Caden Smith (1A boys discus and shot put) and Jacinda Morales (1A girls 800) — have qualified again in at least one event where they advanced to the state meet a year ago. Shelton and Smith are seniors and Morales is a junior.
