The Guthrie High School track teams finished up their season on May 15-16 at the State meet held at Yukon High School. The boys team finished 10th overall with 26 points. The season did not end with a state championship, but there were plenty of highlights during the year to call the season a successful run.

Track 2015The boys team qualified 18 student athletes to compete at state. The girls team qualified one student-athlete in Lexi Hastings.

While at the state meet Winn Hughes placed fifth in the 400 meters, Trey Wilson placed third in the 200 meters, Ryan McIntire placed sixth in the pole vault, Sam Staudt tied for second in the high jump, Michael Pruitt placed third in the discus, the 4×200 relay team (Trey Wilson, Tre Parker, L’liott Curry, and Winn Hughes) placed fifth.

Prior to state the boys team were meet champions at Enid (Indoor), Bethany, Ponca City, Conference, and Regionals.The boys won half the meets they competed in during the 2015 season.

“Much is due to Hall of Fame Coach Clay Tarter, who is retiring this year from coaching the sport,” Coach Matt Perring said.

“Coach Tarter was a valuable asset to the sport and the school during his time at GHS. His eagerness and unquenchable thirst for success will be a missed commodity as the next year rolls around.”
