Weldon finished eighth in the shot put. Laken Plaster (Sr), who competed Friday morning before leaving Odessa to travel to Albany to be the starting pitcher in the Tigerettes first ever softball playoff game, qualified for the finals in the shot put as well and she earned sixth place at the Regional Meet. Jared Lamberson (Sr) competed in the triple jump and just missed qualifying for the finals in his event. Weldon moved from the shot put competition straight to the discus where he entered the finals with the third best throw in the competition. Weldon ended up with a fifth place finish. The 4x100 relay team of Thomas, Reid Spiller (Sr), Daniel Mabbit (Soph) and David Stretcher (Jr) shaved 1.5 seconds off their time at the Area Meet to qualify for the finals where they finished in seventh place. Despite improving their time from the Area Meet, the 4x400 relay team of Mabbit, Stretcher, Kyle Clark (Jr) and Thomas fell just short of qualifying for the finals. Clark also fell just short of qualifying for the finals in the 400 meter dash. Saturday morning started off with Stretcher competing in the long jump and he missed qualifying for the finals in the event. Kelsey Laake (Jr) finished thirteenth in the 800 meter run Saturday morning. Jacob Bridges (Fr) had a challenging day Saturday as well, as he placed twelfth in the 800 meter run and after a short amount of time to rest, placed twelfth in the 1600 meter run. The Tigers and Tigerettes and their coaches had a great track season, highlighted by the school's first District track championship in ten years. Head Track Coach Don Rodie commented, "This season has had many great achievements and stepping stones. Winning the District title was a huge goal that we had set, and placing third at the Area Meet was another great feat. "Watching both the boys' and girls' programs participate and develop into a competitive group has to be the most exciting part of the season. I would like to personally thank my coaching staff who stepped up and did an unbelievable job in preparing our kids to compete this year." An added bonus to the track students was that they made it back from Odessa in time to walk the red carpet for their 2013 Junior Senior Prom Saturday night and all was good.
