Park City makes mark on Taylorsville track
April 27, 2010
In what Park City High School’s track team certainly hopes is a harbinger of things to come at the state meet, the girls’ distance team scored enough top finishes in Taylorsville to place second overall.
PCHS was the only 3A school competing at the meet, said head coach Jeff Wyant, among most of the state’s 4A and 5A teams. Individual results were not available to The Record at press time, but the Miners finished second, third and fourth in the two-mile race and third, fourth and sixth in the mile.
Freshman Megan Glassman also placed in the discus and javelin, and senior defending 100-meter state champion Erik Walker ran well in the 100, Wyant said. Boys’ distance rookies Brandon Magie (sophomore) Matt Nagie (junior) also impressed.
The PCHS team split over the weekend, with another squad going to a meet in Morgan looking to improve times for region. On Wednesday at Dozier Field (3 p.m.), the Miners will host their only home meet of the season, with the main focus for Wyant and his fellow coaches being final determinations for Park City’s regional lineup.
