Helias track struggles in Class 3

May 28th, 2011 in News

It wasn't a great first day at state for the Helias Crusaders and Lady Crusaders.

"I would have liked to have done better, we tried," Helias track and field coach Tom Emmel said.

Helias was in four events Friday in the Class 3 Championships at Dwight T. Reed Stadium - three boys and one girls. None finished higher than 10th.

"There are some really good teams and individuals at state," Emmel said.

Helias' best performance came from sophomore Michael McCoy, who was 12th in the 1,600-meter run in 4:30.78.

"That's his fastest time he's run all year," Emmel said.
