Steamboat Springs Two out of three isn't too bad.
At least that's how Soroco Ram coach Kate Hayne is looking at her team's finish in the 2001 state track meet which was held at Pueblo's Dutch Clark Stadium last weekend.
The Rams had just three athletes competing at the meet and two of them placed in the top six in their events in the state of Colorado.
Kristy Glawe took a fifth in the discus with a throw of 107 feet, 11 inches and Matt Hayne took fifth in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 10:34.22.
"I'm very pleased," coach Hayne said of the meet results. "It's couldn't have been much better."
She said her team was small this year, but loaded with talent. Out of the eight athletes that started the year only six were healthy for the regional. Three out of those six made it to state.
Jessie DeGanahl was the only Ram who qualified for state that did not place. She had a good state meet, but failed to qualify for the finals in the 300-meter hurdles.
Glawe continued to look strong in the discus. She set a personal best mark of 108 feet (a new school record) at the district meet. She was just under that mark at state with an effort of 107-11. The event was won by Lone Star's Alyssa Harty who tossed the disc 135-5 on Saturday.
Hayne turned in top showings in both the 1,600- and 3,200-meter runs. The senior was ninth in the 1,600 with a time of 4:58.91 on Saturday and fifth in the 3,200 with a mark of 10:34.22 on Friday.
Both of the times were personal best marks for Hayne.
"I'm just so excited about this program," coach Hayne said. "We've got a lot of young runners coming up and I just can't wait."
