A good day for track, Chase County athletes

Chase County won both divisions at Tuesday’s home meet held on a beautiful track day in Imperial. Above, an annual event at the Chase County meet is awarding the Bill McNair Memorial Medals to the 800 meter run winners. Chase County senior Destiny Reinke, center, became a four-time McNair medal winner as she captured the girls’ 800 win a fourth straight year Tuesday. Jack Lindgren of Ogallala was the boys’ winner. Flanking them are five of Bill McNair’s great-granddaughters, from left, Bryn, Mallie, Taylin, Aria (in front) and Ali McNair. At right, freshman Trevor Peterson clears the pole vault on his way to a fourth place finish at 11’6”, while senior Katelyn Wheeler, below right, concentrates on her approach en route to a 5’6” first place high jump, a new meet record which beat her own 5’ 5 1/2” meet record mark set last year. The home meet is also a day for school support as several classes, such as Kim Bubak’s second graders, came out to watch the Longhorns. (Johnson Publications photos)
