On May 30 and June 1, the SPA track and field team competed in the Section 4A Meet at Macalester College. The Spartans had a great showing on the first day of sections and qualified a large part of the team to the section finals on Saturday. The highlight of the weekend's competition was the relay team of Tommy Allen '20, Koji Gutzmann '19, Jasper Green '19, and Jonah Spencer '19 qualifying for the MSHSL Class A State Track Meet by taking second in the 4x400m relay. In addition, Tommy Allen took second in a thrilling final 800m race and will also compete at State in that event. The state meet will take place at Hamline University on June 7-8.
The Spartans also ended the season well as a team. Overall, the girls' team finished 11th out of 19 teams and scored 26 points, improving from their 14th place (16 points) finish last year. The boys also improved on last year's results with a tie for 14th place and a score of 29 points (last year the boys finished 14th and scored 24 points).
Go Spartans and good luck at State, Tommy, Koji, Jasper, and Jonah!
