Not only do the Pella boys have a top five team finish in mind at the State Track and Field Meet this week, but they also have high hopes of a few individual state championships.
After finishing runner up in both the 100 and 200 at state last year, Brett Bogaard is back in both events this year eyeing state championships in both events, and Zach Wittenberg is back as well in both the 1600 and 3200. Wittenberg placed in the 1600 last year and just missed placing in teh 3200. Coach Brent Van Hauen feels very confident they are both right at the top in those events.
Bogaard will compete in the 100 preliminaries tomorrow at 4:35pm and the 200 prelims at 6:40pm tomorrow night. Wittenberg will run the 3200 at 3:50pm tomorrow and the 1600 at 1:45pm Saturday.
