Comets Stand Tall in Conference Track Meet

Hans Holzner's quick feet are propeling he and the Hillcrest Comets to the section track meet with confidence. 

After a slow start to the year due to debilitating temps that canceled a series of meets, Hillcrest has come on as of late and is positioned for a run at State in a number of competitions.

Sophomore Hans Holzner is taking the lead on the team. A first place finish in the 1600 meter race earned Holzner a trip to the Section meet. Moments later Holzner joined Eric Konynenbelt, Toby Simonsen and Tommy Thompson in the 4X800 relay. The team of four has finished the season strong, pulling-out a first place finish and giving Holzner a second race to compete in at Sections.

Junior Abby Christenson is leading the ladies, finishing in second place in the 800m and third in the 1600m. Senior Janaya Caines pulled out a second place finish in the 200m and third place in both the 400m and 100m.
