Woodland track & field well represented at Rome meet
The Woodland girls and boys track and field teams finished in the upper half of teams scored at the Wolf Nation: Under the Lights meet held at Barron Stadium in Rome Friday night. For the local competitors, the event served as a tuneup for next week’s Region 7-AAAAA Championships to be held in the same stadium. It should also be noted that not all schools sent full teams to the competition. Rylee Evans won the girls 3200 meter race and Grace Webb took the girls high jump title to lead the Wildcats. Woodland also had five runner-up finishers.
The Woodland girls placed fourth of eight teams with 53 points. Rome won the girls title with 170 points, followed by Pepperell (70) and Guntersville, AL (60).
The Woodland boys finished fifth of ten teams collecting points. Cass had two athletes compete in the discuss throw with Ian Herman placing fourth with a distance of 114-07.5.
