The Wallace Wildcats at tended the Sutherland Booster Club Invitational on Thursday, March 28.  There were 11 other teams at the meet:  Paxton, North Platte St. Patrick’s, Stapleton-McPherson County, Sutherland, Hitchcock County, Wauneta-Palisade, Hershey, Hayes Center, South Platte, Hyannis, and Creek Valley.  
Sutherland has replaced their track and made several improvements to the facility since last season, including improvements in the discus ring, moving and redoing the runways for the long jump, and moving the pole vault.  This is the first meet of four that the Wildcats will be running on the new track this season.  
Many of the Wildcats improved on their marks from last week (or last season) again, and some of them had the opportunity to compete in their first meet of the season.  
The highlight of the day was junior Landon Swedberg’s performance in the discus.   In his discus debut, he threw 130’2” and won second place.
The South Loup Invite, held in Arnold, will be the next meet for the Wildcats.  One-third of the team will be competing, due to State FFA.  Field events begin at 9 a.m., with running to follow at noon.
