The Western Athletic Conference track meet is set for today at Dodge City, starting at 4.
It will be the last chance for regular-season competition before Great Bend High School competes in a Class 5A regional meet at Salina Central on Friday, May 17. Field events start at 2:30 p.m.
The Panthers will look to be led by senior pole vaulter Chris Burley, who shattered a school record during the Great Bend Invitational by reaching 15 feet to beat his previous school record of 14-6, which he set at the WAC meet last season.
The Lady Panthers will look to pole vaulters Hannah Middleton, who finished first at the Salina Central Invitational on Friday with a height of 10-0.
Throwers Jayce Brack and Nick Warren look to continue success after Brack took second in the shot put and Warren finished second in the discus at Salina Central.
