The Prairie View track team traveled to Wichita on May 24-25 to compete in the 3A State tournament.

The Buffalos did well as they had boy and girl medal winners and the defending State champion girls’ team placed 10th this year with a team score of 23 points. Smoky Valley won the meet for the 3A girls with a score of 51 points while Holcomb won for the 3A boys with 80 points.

Bree Allen once again had a great State track meet. Last year Allen was the champion of the 800 meter run, 1600 meter run, and 3200 meter run. This year she once again won the 1600 and 3200 and placed seventh in the 800. Her gold medal times in the 1600 and 3200 were 5:02.37 and 10:50.17 respectively. The 800 was a very close race where the top eight places were only seconds apart. Allen’s time of 2:24.89 in the 800 was good for seventh.
