Success mixed with a little drama was the outcome for the Carbon High boy's and girls track team at the region meet this weekend. Success came in the form of three region champions and 22 total members who are heading to BYU this weekend for the state meet.

Ryan Rasmussen took first in the high jump. He also ran on the boys 4x400 and 4x100 teams that qualified for state. Karisa Nelson garnered the top spot in the 100 Hurdles .She also placed third in the 300 hurdles, and ran on the 4x400 and 4x100 teams that qualified for state. Brock Morley won the 110 hurdles. He also ran on the boys 4x400 team that qualified for state.

The drama came when Nelson edged out Delta's defending 3A hurdler in a photo finish in the finals. However the timers were not working and because it was so close, the race had to be run again immediately after the boy's final.
