Top Athletes Rise to the Occasion at 2010 State Meet
By Will Cummings
The 2010 Nebraska High school track and field season ended with a bang—a lot of wind too! Plenty of meet records were set and a bunch of athletes saved their season personal best performances for the big show.
On Saturday, I took my video camera along with me to capture some of the exciting action at Burke. Hopefully, I will have some video posted on the site soon.
There were several very impressive performances and a lot of quality athletes at this year’s state meet—many of them will be returning for more in 2011.

Nice! HS track looks like it’s on the rise around here. Lot of top medal winners coming back next season. Thanks for all you do. When will you have the video of the meet posted?

Thanks. I will try to post the video by tonight. Really impressed with Brianna McGee and Maia Reynolds. Even more impressed with Clara Nichols and Daniel Davie got huge upside!

I was at the State meet both days, and I feel that “THE” race of the meet was the Class A girls 4X400 relay match up. It was one of the best come from behind wins I have seen in a long time. Did you happen to catch it on video?? I knew with MSH’s Top Fillies in, along with the times they have been posting it was going to be a good one to watch. I was NOT dissapointed!

Sorry didn’t get any relays in but I saw the race. Woitzel ran an unbelievable leg. On a side note: both Wotzel and Nichols were not the same after that false start in the open 400–I thought Woitzel was DQed. I know she did.That kind of thing can really throw an athlete off their focus. Who knows what kind of race both would have run if it were not for that mishap. Great meet!!!
