Track members compete at state
By RODNEY WHITE
Dalhart sent three students to the state track meet in Austin over the weekend, and they represented Dalhart well. The meet started with rain delays on Friday, but Dalhart didn’t compete until Saturday, and the weather was beautiful. Sara Smith got the team started when she ran the 3200 at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday morning. Sara finished fifth in the state with a time of 11:23.49, which was a new personal best time on the track. Sara beat her regional qualifying time by over 12 seconds so she had an amazing run against some great competition. After the race Sara stated, “I probably ran a little fast on the first mile, my split time was 5:31 on the first mile.”
