The Logan Rogersville Track and Field program plans to stalk the podiums regularly this 2021-2022 season. The team is composed of numerous athletes who performed at both the Sectional and State level. It makes for a very exciting season according to the Wildcat coaches.
“We are looking forward to a fun and exciting season. The team has several returners back this year that are ready to work hard and compete,” shared Sofie Kondro, Head Girls Track and Field Coach. “We enjoy encouraging kids on the track and off the track. It’s a true joy to help kids unlock their potential and to see their confidence grow and develop.”
The Wildcat Boy’s team will produce a number of athletes who should hit the podium. Junior, Logan Cook will be in a leadership position for the team. Cook is expected to have explosive open events in the 200M and 400M. Sophomore, Caleb Vogt ran the 300M hurdles at 42.79 seconds during sections last spring. Sophomore Joyle Seu will have several opportunities this year to earn points in the 100M and 110M hurdles. New to the team, freshman Braxton Yost will be competing in hurdles, mid-distance and long distance. Ryder Randles is coming off of a successful freshman year and is expected to perform well in the 800M, 1600M and 3200M. Randles will also look to contribute in pole vault. Senior Franklin Ray, a multi-talented field athletes will be looking to help the Wildcats out in shot, discus, and javelin. Senior Carter Kovach will also be working hard to add points in pole vault and possibly long jump and javelin. Senior Brigham Ray will hopefully make leaps in both triple and long jump.
The Lady Wildcats have a line up of strong individual performers as well as components for successful relays. Senior Brianna Linehan ran a fast 26.98 seconds in the 200M last year. Lineheart was part of the 4x100M (which holds the current school record) and state qualifying 4x200M last year. Juniors Aleah Metge and Olivia Frieze will also run in the 4x100M and 4x200M. Sophomore Railey Stillings, also a contributor to relays, ran her personal best in the 100M (12.61) and 100M hurdles (16.19) at sectionals last season. Junior Grace Johnson is looking to add points with her contributions in both the 300M hurdles and relay teams. Sophomore Leiah O’Neal returns to high jump this year, she previously qualified for state and the team is looking forward to seeing her improve this year. Junior Madyson Stewart is expected to put up big numbers for the Wildcat’s throwing and jumping events this season.
The Wildcats are expected to find success in both individual events and relays this spring. Coach Kondro states that they are “keeping everyone healthy and injury free” as they prepare for the season opener: Marshfield Small School Invitational March 25.
