5AA Section Meet Results CLICK HERE
The Rogers Track Team finished up the competition season Friday with the 5AA Section Championships. Competition was very strong and performances from the Royals were as well. Although none of the performances advanced any Royals to the State Meet this weekend, when you compare times to many of the other sections around, we are good enough to compete at the State Level. Hard work pays off and no one can take away from what the team accomplished this season. There were weeks nearly everyone PR’d. We purchased a great new record board that will be hung this summer, which we will be updating with 9 new records set in 2017, our most yet. We qualified more athletes to section finals, and got more to the podium than any year. There has been a lot done to be proud of this season and on behalf of all the coaches, Rogers High School and the Rogers area community, we thank you for your dedication, hard work, and the pride you bring to Rogers. I’d also like to acknowledge again the efforts and leadership the coaches of Rogers Track brought to the table this season. Coaches Justin Oie, Amanda Oie, John Kapsner, David Tilton, Bethany Thompson, Dustin Sluzewicz and Maggie Litchy; the athletes’ response to the culture these professionals brought has left an effect that will ripple on for many seasons to come.
