Coppell Track & Field teams qualified 18 athletes for the UIL Class 6A Region I Track meet held at UTA’s Maverick stadium this past weekend. After dealing with continued weather delays throughout Friday, the teams were able to rally and finish the competition with multiple prelims and finals conducted on Saturday.
Each member of the women’s team placed top 3 throughout the two days of competition which collectively earned them a new team title as Class 6A Region I Track and Field Champions! While the title is shared Flower Mound based upon both teams receiving an impressive 72 points, the Coppell Cowgirls were thrilled with the results late Saturday evening.
Leading the women’s team points was Sophomore Skyler Schuller who finished 1st in Pole Vault and High Jump, followed up by 3rd place finishes in both the 100 Meter Hurdles and the 300 Meter Hurdles.
Other women contributing to the team points included Kinley Wojick who finished 2nd in Pole Vault, Megan Judd who finished 3rd in High Jump, and Waverly Hassman who finished 3rd in the 800 Meter Run.
But the last 20 points needed to clinch the championship title were earned late Saturday evening by the women’s 4x400 Relay Team. After having to run the prelims earlier in the day, the team pulled together to wow the crowd with a Coppell High School record breaking run of 3:48.69. The team included Emma Sherrer, Olivia Marez, Morgan Colon, and Waverly Hassman.
Based upon those results, the following women will be advancing to the State Competition next weekend:
