Week two of the track season is in the books! The Kansas wind still played a major factor but some big meets meant big improvements across the board. So far, 93 meets have been tallied. This week, regional locations have been added. Just a few sheets across the six classes remain unfilled, but a good week of weather will likely change that. A few missing meets were added that include class leaders in 2A, 3A, and 5A.

Stanton County junior Chesney Peterson made a big debut in the 800m run. On a day when times were down at home, she ran a 2:20 to open the season. She put on a show with a 2:15.84 at the Pre-State meet to take the state lead by five seconds, and she ran a 2:18 Monday. Peterson also ran a 5:05.35 1600m run to rank No. 2 across all classes.

The Marion meet on April 8 was loaded with Class 2A and 3A talent. Southeast of Saline senior Jentrie Alderson, the reigning 3A champ in the 1600, posted the fourth-fastest 800m time in Kansas to win in 2:21.05. Reigning 3A champion Gracie Lambert of Smoky Valley cut nine seconds off her week-one time but still finished nearly a second behind Alderson. The futre Pitt State runner Alderson also ran a 5:13.95 1600m run to take a 15-second lead in Class 3A and move to No. 8 across all classes this spring.

Kiowa County senior Addi Heinson swept the sprint championships in Class 1A last May. She debuted in the 100m and 400m dashes with 1A leads in both events. Both of her times are among the all-class top-10.

The Class 4A hurdles are shockingly fast this spring. Wellington junior Annalisa Cullens, who cruised to 4A titles in both hurdle events last May, currently has the No. 1 100m hurdle time in Kansas in 14.86, and ranks No. 2 in the state in the 300s in 46.60, still 1.11 seconds behind Mill Valley’s Quincy Hubert.
