Knoxville Girls Track And Field Seeking Regional Succsess Next Week

With just one more meet left in the regular season for the Knoxville Girls Track and Field Squad, the Panthers are beginning to look toward the regional meet next Thursday. Knoxville has been hit hard recently with injuries, some season ending. Coach Jeremy Van Engen says high jump is one event that can get a state meet berth. Van Engen adds Alex Gibson has also reached five feet in high jump and has a chance to contend. He adds long jumper Emily Belloma has jumped 15/three and at one time as the top seed in the regional. The Panthers will travel to the Dutch Relays on Monday before heading to Dallas Center-Grimes for the Regional next Thursday.
