State Track Results The Spartan Track Teams competed at Omaha Burke Stadium May 18-19th. The teams faced time delays due to automatic timing not working on Friday and weather delays on Saturday. The timing system not working properly caused a fin- ish dilemma with 100 Hurdles involving Christo- pher Paitz. Initially a run-off was determined be- tween 6 runners to determine qualifiers for finals. After a long review it was decided that a run-off was not needed and thus Christopher did not make the finals for Saturday. On Saturday the weather kept threatening with thunderstorms throughout the day and finally made an appear- ance before the last event causing a rain delay. The boys finally returned to the track around 5:30 to run the 1600 M. relay. Kids that medaled in events were: Colin Arehart: 4th; 800 M. Run, 2:02.43 (reco 5th, 1600 M.
