Zephyr and Blanket earned two spots in the UIL track and field state meet field, while Early and May will be sending one entrant to Austin — and more could be coming.
Regional track and field meets concluded for Brown County athletes Saturday, with the top two finishers in each event guaranteed spots in the state field May 11-12. The top third place finisher out of all four regions statewide will receive a wild-card berth, and those will likely be official the early part of next week.
Early Trinity Tomlinson is moving on as the Region I-3A girls high jump champion, Blanket's Logan Wheeler captured both the Region III-A boys 100 and 200 meters titles, and May’s Jacob Brown won the Region II-A boys triple jump title. Zephyr’s Gabby Durbin, in the 3200 meters, and John Wall in the 110-meter hurdles, will move on as Region III-A runners-up.
Durbin, in the 1600 meters, and Devin Williams in the boys discus, both finished third and are expecting to be named wild cards, while Thomas Terpening also came in third in the boys pole vault for Zephyr.
Brown also added a third-place effort in the long jump, while Tomlinson in the 100-meter hurdles, along with Early’s Ryan Hill in the boys 800 meters and the girls 4x100 relay also finished third.
Blanket's Tori Williamson was third in the Region III-A girls triple jump as well.
