  • To say it's been a decent track season for Wellington High School's Megan Campbell, senior, is an understatement. It kept getting better at the Pre-State Track Meet at Wichita State University last week.
    Campbell won the Elite Division in both the 100 and 200 Meter Dash. She lead all classes in each event, running a 12.26 in the 100 and a time of 25.71 in the 200. Campbell has won each of those events at all of the meets WHS has competed in this season.
    To go along with the top-flight performance at WSU, where Campbell will be on the track squad once she graduates from high school, she also was named Most Valuable Player of the Pre-State Meet.
    Campbell also helped propel two WHS relay teams to the gold last week. In the 4x100, Campbell, along with Cajen Shore, sophomore, Holly Wright, junior, and Dietra Sober, freshman took first place in the 4A through 6A Division with a time of 51.37.
    In the 4A through 6A Division 4x400 relay, Cabriel Roe, sophomore, Sober, Wright, and Campbell crossed the line before anyone else, setting a new school record in the process, with a time of 4:15.34.
    More notable performances from the girls team at WSU include a third place finish by Avery Lewellen, junior, in the 4A through 6A High Jump with a height of 4'9.75". In the same division, Cajen Shore took third in the Triple Jump with a distance of 32'.
    There were a couple of top three finishers for the WHS boys team as well. Ian Stallbaumer, senior, took home silver in the Pole Vault with a mark of 12' 6'', and Colin Reichenberger also took home second with a 11.85 run in the 110 Meter Hurdles.
    The Crusader Track team was at home on Tuesday, April 16. To see how they did, check out
