Joanna: State track, Day 2

by joanna

1:20 p.m. _ The Wichita area dominated the boys 100 meters. While Goessel’s Craig Banman finished second in a tight 1A race, it was Garden Plain’s Kurt Pauly winning in 3A, Wichita Trinity’s Morgan Burns winning in 4A, Newton’s Grant Loescher winning in 5A.

But Wichita did not get a 6A 100 meters champ. East’s Oliver Bradwell finished third, while Heights’ Justin Moore was fifth.

I was surprised by Loescher’s win because I expected the Walker twins from Bonner Springs to win. But Loescher’s start was impeccable and he led the whole way.
