Track & Field
Courtesy GMS Coaches – The GMS Track Team traveled to Palmer to the Colony Middle School varsity track meet this past Thursday. The weather was a bit chilly, but we still had some athletes turn in some hot results. Piers Shirk took 5 seconds off his school record in the mile, posting a blistering time of 5 min 18 sec. Grace Seiber just missed tying her personal best in the high jump, getting knocked out at the 4ft mark. AJ Mann cleared a personal best 4 ft 10 in during the high jump and turned in a long jump of 15 ft 2 1/2 in which was just shy of the school record 15 ft 9 in he posted 2 weeks ago. Spencer Holbrook threw 29 ft 10 in to lead our boys in the shot put also.
This week the team heads to Houston Middle school for both the Varsity and JV state championships.
