After State, USATF took us to Idaho State University for the Jr Olympic Region 11 Championship. Region 11 consists of Utah, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Utah typically has the highest number of athletes competing, but we saw lots from Idaho and Montana this time. The track facility at Davis Field was gorgeous with a brand new track and plenty of shade for us to chill between events. You can click here for the official results.
The three-day meet started on Thursday afternoon with our 3000m athletes in the evening.
On day two, our two multi-event athletes competed. Sydney G. got silver in the 11-12 girls pentathlon (80m hurdles, shot put, high jump, long jump, 800m) and Matthew W. scored a bronze in the 9-10 boys triathlon (shot put, high jump, 400m). Next up was the 4x800m relay. We only had one team; our 13-14 boys and they competed alone, so yeah! Gold medal! Last for the day were preliminary heats for the sprints. We had athletes hoping to qualify for finals in the 100m, 200m, and 400m.
On Saturday we started out strong with our athletes killing it in the 1500m. Kathleen M. surprised us all (herself included) by kicking in her final lap to take a gold medal and break the Region 11 record. She was ONLY aiming to finish in under six minutes. Kathleen finished in 5:36! Then she went and did it again in the 800m with another broken Region record. Way to go!
Enjoy some photos from the weekend. Unfortunately, I was unable to get any photos of our athletes at their field events. The layout of the track made it impossible for me to get close enough. Maybe I can rent a telephoto lens next year! A link to the photo gallery for all of the photos from this track season has been emailed to parents and shared in the group chat on TeamSnap.
Below is a list of athletes who placed in 6th or higher; those were the places the meet was giving out medals for. Athletes who placed in the top 8 in their events also qualified to compete at Nationals.

Thank you to our amazing coaches for sticking it out for the three-day meet and supporting our athletes in the heat. Second, thank you to our awesome parents for keeping our athletes shaded, hydrated, fed, and entertained.
Last, THANK YOU to our Wolfpack athletes. At the end of the day, YOU are the ones who put in the work and give your all at meets. As coaches and parents, we can do support you the best ways we know, but then we have to stand back and let you wow us. And you do. Thank you for letting us bear witness.
