The track season as a whole may not have been as good they wanted, but there were many of the members who made it to state which made it a successful season. Mason County Central has six individual event entries and a relay team going to state. Dylan Hearns got fourth at regionals giving him the opportunity to run the 800 meter dash at state. Ryan Mount will be in multiple individual events for getting second in the 200 meter dash and first in the high jump. Matt Quinn got first in discus at regionals and second in shot put letting him participate in state for those events. The last individual making it into state finals is Jael Wood. She was in for pole vault in which she placed second at regionals. The last event that qualified was the boys 4×400 meter relay ran by Dylan Hearns, Ryan Mount, Jacob Shoop, and Travis Tyndall.

Varsity Coach Don Thomas had a few words to share.
