Eagles' Terry to run in 200 at meet in EP
Pecos Eagles' sophomore Rashad Terry, who wasn't able to compete for
a spot at the Class 3A Track and Field Championships, will get a chance to
run against some college-level competition this Saturday at the UTEP Twilight
Meet at Kidd Field in El Paso.
Terry won the 200 meters at the District 4-3A meet in Kermit back on
April 11, but was one of two runners off the Eagles' district championship
team who were not eligible to run at last weekend's Region I-3A meet in
Odessa. Instead, he'll run unattatched in the 200 at the UTEP meet this
weekend, which will feature both college teams and other unattached and
track club competitors. The Miners, New Mexico and New Mexico State are
among the teams entered in the meet.
Terry ran a 21.68 to win the 200 at district. At this past weekend's
Region I-3A meet in Odessa, Abilene Wylie's Adam Baugh won the 200 with
a 21.72 time.
The meet will begin on Saturday with field events at 3 p.m., while running
events start at 6 p.m. with the 400 meter relay. The women's pole vault
will start at 4 p.m. and the men's pole vault is scheduled for 6 p.m. The
200 meter dash is scheduled for 8:05 p.m. MDT (9:05 p.m. CDT).
Admission for the event is free.
