Athletes push through districts to earn a chance at State Track
State track is less than a week away here in Nebraska, but to get there you have to go through districts first.
It was a big day on the track, first for the ladies 4x800.
Amherst came in as the favorite, but the hometown Cambridge Trojans held tough til the end and punched their ticket to Omaha.
The boys also put on a show in the 4x800 - ending with a comeback story.
With Kearney Catholic leading until the final lap, South Loup anchor leg Kalen Dockweiler kicked it into high gear, sending the Bobcats to state.
One of the individual stars on the day was Dundy County Stratton's Phalen Sanford.
The Hastings College football commit ran away with the 400-meter dash district title at 50.02, securing his first event for next weekend - an event he was surprised to be in.
Sanford wouldn't stop there.
He also won the 110 hurdles at 14.9 seconds, leaving a lot on his plate for state.
Sanford also won the 300 hurdles at 39.2 seconds and the 4x400 relay as well.
