Panthers start season with state qualifiers


Saratoga High School’s track team showed early potential at last week’s Natrona Invite, the team’s first meet of the 2014 track season.

Most notably, the team of Hunter Mason, Tate Stinson, Seth Harrison and Kyle Bartlett ran the 400-meter relay in 46.86 seconds, which qualified them for the state track and field championships. Cameron Collamer also scored fifth-place in the 800-meter run, with a time of 2 minutes 5.91 seconds.

Coach Rex Hohnholt said improvement was what he looked for most during the first meet of the season, which took place March 28 at Casper’s Natrona County High School.

“What you’re looking for most, especially for these young kids getting their first taste of competition, is improvement,” he said. “We’ve got that standard now, and I was excited and pleased with the overall performances. We have about 40 kids out, and 23 competed. It was also a huge meet.”

The team’s next competition is the Wheatland Invite, beginning at 11 a.m. Friday at Wheatland High School. Hohnholt said he is eager to see what this new season may bring.

“Last weekend’s meet was our first test of competition,” he said. “We’ve definitely got room for improvement, and I’m looking forward to seeing these kids challenge themselves.”
