North East ISD Track & Field
NEISD sent some of our finest athletes to compete in the UIL State Track Meet in Austin this past weekend (May 9 & 10) and the excellence in their performances exemplifies what we have come to expect and celebrate from our student athletes.
To just hear your name announced as a contestant must be one of the greatest thrills for one of these athletes. To actually have it announced at the conclusion of your event as one of the top six competitors must seen like a dream. Robert Ford (2nd 800M) of Johnson, Charles Reinger (6th 110M Hurdels) of Johnson and Sarea Alexander (2nd in both the Long Jump and Triple Jump) of MacArthur all shared that dream and had that honor. Sarea Alexander missed on being a State Champion in the Triple Jump by a mere 1/2 inch and Robert Ford, who also competed in two events (400M), missed placing by less than a second!
Allysha Davis (100M) and Chloe Young (100M Hurdles) of Reagan, Taylor Martinez (High Jump) of Churchill, Alexandra Blount (300M Hurdles) of Lee, and Baldomero Lozano (Triple Jump) of Madison were all athletes who also represented NEISD and did magnificent jobs. They all competed hard and it was obvious that they weren’t just “happy” to be there. They are amazing athletes at the top of their sport and performing at the highest level.
Finally, the UIL introduced wheelchair competition into the State Meet this year. Wyatt Stuckness (100M and 400M) of Reagan placed 5th in both of his races and his performances in his events were incredibly inspiring. The inspiration gained from these athletes was shared by all in attendance as evidenced by the roaring ovation before, during, and after these races. By including these athletes, the UIL got this one exactly right.
NEISD and especially our Athletic Department are extremely proud of the coaches, teachers, parents, and, of course, our student athletes who gave such time and effort to bring such pride to their respective schools and our district. Their performances were amazing and they are congratulated for their success.
