Kemling sets new school record

At the April 22 Chase County Invite, the PCS boys track team finished in fifth spot as a team with 55 points, just behind Hershey, which had 66.5 team points. The girls were also fifth with 62 team points. Sutherland was just ahead of the Lady Plainsmen with 79 team points.
PCS head track coach Shayne Hite knows the competition his teams were up against do not have the numbers of athletes by volume some larger schools have, but that does not diminish the effort.
“We don’t have the numbers to compete for a team title with Chase County and NPSP in there but we will try to score as much as we can,” Hite said.
Hite noted that having larger schools at an invite is a double-edged sword.
“It’s good to push them but it’s also nice when we don’t have them (larger schools at an invite) and the kids see some more success in placing,” Hite said.

Mike Troxel Invite
April 26, Hershey

Personal best times and distances are set almost weekly during track season.
At the Mike Troxel Invite on April 26 at Hershey Perkins County runner Emily Kemling set a record, for herself and for the school. Kemling set the school record for the 3200 meter run with a time of 12:57.
Shayne Hite, Perkins County High School track coach, said Kemling has been working hard to get that record all year.
“She is very deserving of this record because she works very hard at practice and in meets. This was also impressive for the fact that she was out in front a ways of other runners and had to push herself to get the record,” Hite said. “Hopefully she can keep breaking this record this year and for the next couple years. She is also motivated to get the mile record as well because it is her sister that holds that one.”
The boys finished in fifth place with 43 team points, behind Garden County, which had 46.5 team points.
The girls finished sixth with 38 team points. Mullen was fifth with 41 team points.
With the SPVA invite tomorrow (May 2) and districts May 15, Hite is still putting strategy together to get as many athletes at state as possible.
“We are going to try some things out that we want to look at for districts because this is most likely the kind of order of events that Bayard will run,” Hite said. “So you might see some athletes in some different areas. This will give us a reading on how our kids can handle this type of order of events and still be successful or not.”
