Glen Rose High School is sending five girls and three boys to the Class 4A area track and field meet after competing Monday and Tuesday in the District 8-4A meet hosted by Midlothian Heritage.

The top four finishers in each event qualified to advance to the next level, which is the area meet. It’s set for Wednesday, April 19, at Porcupine Stadium in Springtown.

Glen Rose has two boys advancing in shot put — Yuri White, who earned second place, and Matthew Willis, who was third. Also, Dakota Paschall took fourth place in the boys 100-meter run to qualify.

Glen Rose’s Ally Andress advanced in three events, including one relay, while Shayln Wedel qualified in two events in the varsity girls division.

Andress qualified in both the triple jump and high jump individually, and also on the 4 x 200-meter relay team. She won the triple jump and took second in the high jump. Last year as a sophomore, Andress reached the state meet in the high jump and captured second place.

Wedel advanced in the pole vault and the 400-meter run. GRHS teammate Jaylan Evans also advanced in the girls pole vault.

Breanna Baker of Glen Rose qualified for the area meet by taking second place in the 1,600-meter run.

The Glen Rose girls 4 x 200-meter relay team of Valeria Castro, Rachel Buren, Andress and Annie Bryant also advanced to the area meet.

“I’m pleased with all the girls’ performances. We performed well,” GRHS girls track coach Sandy Langford said. “Most everyone got PRs (personal records in either time, height or distance). That’s kind of our goal. We’re in one of the best districts in the state, and we competed the best we could.”

The area meet is set for Wednesday, April 19, in Springtown. The top four finishers in each event at the area meet also will advance to the Region I-4A meet, to be held in Lubbock April 28-29.

In the final varsity boys team standings, Glen Rose finished fifth with 67 points, nine points behind fourth-place Alvarado. Waxahachie Life won the varsity girls division with 183 points, while Stephenville was runner-up with 154.

In the junior varsity girls final team standings, Glen Rose was fourth with 102 points. Waxahachie Life won it with 147 points.
