Wildcats headed to state
By Jarann Johnson
Center-Stanton has a small track and field team, which means their focus is typically getting as many kids to the state meet as possible. Last weekend’s South Central Region meet was huge for Center-Stanton because it was their final attempt to qualify for the big state meet.
Ben Thompson, a junior, got the mark he was looking for in the high jump. Thompson took second with a jump of 5 feet, 10 inches. Thompson’s event will start at 3 p.m. Saturday.
Thompson also placed at the regional meet in the long jump, leaping 17 feet and 10.50 inches.
