Watch out Alaska. Here comes the Region III brigade.
If there’s one thing that anyone learned from last weekend’s Region III prep track and field meet, it’s that Region III athletes are fast. Very fast.
At the end of the day last Saturday, 11 new region records and nine new 2015 state bests were set under overcast skies on a two-year-old track that surrounds Ed Hollier Field in Kenai. It seemed to be the perfect storm.
“It was just one of those ‘wow’ days,” said Soldotna coach Phil Leck. “It seemed like every time a gun went off, a record was broken.”
