After a season full of ups and downs, the Panorama girls track and field team will be well represented at the IGHSAU State Track and Field meet at Drake Stadium May 16-18. After a solid performance at the Drake Relays, Jaidyn Sellers will be competing in the high jump, 100-, 200- and 400-meter dashes. Kylie Rochholz qualified for the 1500- and 3000-meter runs. The 4×800 relay team comprised of Mary Fett, Laicey Lutz, Maddy Lutz and Rochholz also qualified. And Arilyan Steenblock qualified for discus.

“This is a very exciting way to bring an end to our season,” coach Greg Thompson said. “It was a difficult season with injuries, illness and eligibility issues. Last night (May 9 regional meet) was the closest we had to a full roster, and the girls placed third in the team standings just 19 points from the title — and we didn’t enter into two events because we don’t enough hurdlers.”
