TRIBUNE-Area Boys Among Elite At State Track & Field Championships

limbing onto the podium to finish the season is the goal of all tracksters and for a select few, they earned that priviledge at the 2016 Nebraska Class B High School State Track and Field Boys Championships that were held at Omaha Burke Stadium on Friday and Saturday. 
Leading the way for all of the TRIBUNE-Area finishers was Dylan France of Gothenburg. France was able to ‘Fosbury Flop’ over 6’2” to earn the seventh place accolades at the State Championships.
Gaining confidence in the pole vault during the post season was enough to propel Gothenburg’s Tyce Hruza up and over the crossbar that was set at the 14’0” mark to finish seventh place overall in the vertical jumping event. 
Competing in his specialty event, JohnMark Shields of Lexington was eighth place overall in the 3200 meter run. Shields completed the eight lap event in 9:57 to finish on the medal stand.  
Bryan Martinez of Gothenburg struggled to hit his marks and wasn’t able to record a cleared height i the high jump for the Cardinal-clad tracksters. 
Joshua White was among the best in the 100 and 200 meter dashes for Lexington. 
White did an outstanding job of staying among the leaders in both events. White conquered the 100 meter dash in 11.28 seconds and then burnt up the cinders to the tune of 22.74 seconds .
Sergio Escobar of Gothenburg got his feet wet in competing at Omaha Burke in the 800 meter run. Escobar was able to earn a time of 2;08 in the two lap feature event.   
Scoring rave reviews for his performance in the discus, Patrick Hudson of Gothenburg was able to spin the platter past the 132’11” mark. ­
