The Union Knights Boys Track team will take 6 events to Des Moines to compete at the State Track Meet. District Champions and state qualifiers for the Knights were the 4X800 Team of Seth Woodson, Zach Purdy, Jared Wauters, and Garrett Woodson with a new school record of 8:10.64 and Garrett Woodson in the 800M Run. Silver Medalists and state qualifiers were Zach Bathen in the Shot Put, Austin Bunz in the 400M Dash, Ryan Christensen in the 110M High Hurdles, and Zach Purdy in the 400M Low Hurdles. Coach, Andy McQuillen commented, "I am very happy and proud of our kids. We competed in a very tough district with our top events. I feel fortunate to get 6 events to state. Unfortunately, we had a couple of relays that came up on the short end of the stick, but that also can be turned into motivation for next year. For our 4X800 team to run an 8:10 at districts is quite a feat. They have a strong opportunity to make some noise in Des Moines on Thursday. I also like where we stand in some individual events. We will be focused as we head to Des Moines. As I told them Friday, we will be going to the State Meet to compete with the best and bring home medals."
