Red Lion’s track team participated in their last home meet of the season April 27, and for seniors their last home meet ever. The girls and boys team both saw victories as the girls won 88-62 and the boys won 80-70. This win for the girls gave them a three way share of the York-Adams Division I title showing evidence of their overall successful season.
Senior thrower Hailey Gunnet looks back at every meet and every season thus far as a huge success.
“In my four years of high school track we won three county championships,” Gunnet said. “I think that’s really awesome and shows how hard we work as a team.”
The three county championships showed the tenacity the team had over the years.
“We may not have a big team but we can still measure up with teams much bigger than ours,” Gunnet said.
On her senior night Gunnet got first in shot put and javelin and finishing third in discus.
Senior sprinter Quincy Palmer differs in emotions when it comes to his last season.
“There might be a little more emotion in each race but I don’t really think about it that much,” Palmer said. “Sometimes it hits me, sometimes it’s like any other meet.”
Palmer expressed gratitude towards being a member of the Red Lion track team also.
“I’ve been lucky enough to be apart of some of the most dominant and versitile track team’s that Red Lion has ever had,” Palmer said. “The teams I’ve been apart of were exceptional. We’ve been apart of something that will be remembered and that means the most to me.”
A number of athletes moved on to participate in District III competition.
