Results From State Track In Omaha

Dorchester High School found itself with three state qualifiers this track and field season.

DHS sent juniors Bailey Velder (shot put), Jacee Weber (triple jump and long jump), and Maru Ruiz (100 and 200 meter dash).

The Nebraska State Track and Field Championships were held Friday and Saturday, May 20 and 21, at Omaha Burke Stadium.  

Here are the results from the Class D events in Omaha:
  • TRIPLE JUMP: 4th Place -- Jacee Weber (35'-0.75")
  • SHOT PUT: 5th Place -- Bailey Velder (37'-10.35")
  • LONG JUMP: 10th Place -- Jacee Weber (15'-5")
Maru Ruiz, who captured gold in both the 100 meter and 200 meter at districts, was not able to advance beyond preliminaries at the state meet.

Our congrats to all three Lady Longhorns for representing their school and community at state!
