LEVELLAND — Two Roscoe athletes, one girl and one boy, are headed to Austin after securing berths at the Region I-2A track meet this past weekend at South Plains College.
Roscoe’s Bonnie Wilkinson won regional gold in the girls triple jump, soaring 37-5 1/2, and Jayden Gonzales took home second in the boys pole vault even though he tied for first by clearing the bar at 13-3.
Gonzales finished tied for first with Cross Plains’ Theron Allen, who won a jump-off to decide the first-place medal.
Wilkinson had no such issues as her best jump was well ahead of her closest competitor, Vega’s Zoe Webb, earning Wilkinson a third trip to the state meet that is set for May 10-11 in Austin. She and Gonzales accounted for all of Roscoe’s team points at regionals. Gonzales is making his first state appearance.
A complete listing of all regional results for Roscoe athletes will be in Tuesday’s paper.
