Undermanned Dogies on to State
Eight Dogies will be moving on to the State Meet after successful performances at last weekend’s 3A East Regional Track Meet in Thermopolis. Though the rest of the squad didn’t quite make the mark, they put up some impressive numbers, and several also set new personal bests in their events.
Senior Jacob Esposito was the only Dogie to be crowned as a conference champion, and he did so in the 110 meter hurdles, his signature race. Not only was he able to nab top honors, but he also bested one of the top hurdlers in the state by defeating Tyrel Leman of Douglas.
“It was a great race,” head coach Chad Ostenson exclaimed. “When you run the 110 hurdles, it gets a little physical sometimes and Jacob got the better end of that deal.”
