When the dust settled at this week's Class D-4 District Track Meet at Sandy Creek, Dorchester High School found itself with three athletes qualifying for Nebraska's State High School Track and Field Championship Meet in Omaha later this month.
The following DHS seniors are headed to state:
- Jacee Weber (Girls Triple Jump and Girls Long Jump);
- Maru Ruiz (Girls 100 Meter Dash); and
- Bailey Velder (Girls Shot Put).
All three DHS track and field standouts are seniors.
All three girls qualified for state last year, as well.
Weber is the Class D leader in the triple jump with a best jump of 35-1. Velder has the second best toss in Class D for the season.
The Nebraska State Track and Field Championships will be held Friday and Saturday, May 19 and 20, at Omaha Burke Stadium. See the line-up of events here.
Our congratulations to the DHS state qualifiers. Keep representing your school and community proudly.
