Fourteen Aledo High School athletes including one relay team will begin their respective quests to qualify for the state track meet when they compete Friday and Saturday at the Class 5A, Region I Track and Field Meet at Lowery Field in Lubbock.
The top two finishers in each event at the regional meet will automatically qualify for the state meet. Each race/event will also send one “wild card qualifier” to the state meet – the best third-place time/mark from all four regional meets in each event and relays will advance to the state meet.
