Reporter Staff Report

Hundreds of high school student-athletes who have qualified for today’s regional track and field meets in various classes all converged on Glen Rose last week.

GRHS?hosted the annual Jackie Bullion Regional Qualifiers Meet on Thursday.

The event had to be shortened due to inclement weather that made its way into the area during the evening hours.

Before the weather blew in, however, Lady Tiger Kaitlin West placed fifth in the triple jump by landing 34 feet, 8-3/4 inches past her take off spot.

West was the only Glen Rose competitor to place at the event, but she won’t be alone at regionals.

Joining West at Texas A&M-Commerce for the Class 3A Region II event will be Ana Ruiz, Kaycie Brown, Katy Irvin, Samatha Watson, Dinah Goodson and Rebecca Hajney.

On the boys side, regional qualifiers from GRHS include Ty Taylor, Nick Gibson, Austin Eschbach, Tyler Pillow, Daniel Groome and Granger. The boys’ 4x100m relay team will also compete.

Action in Commerce begins today and concludes on Friday.
