West qualifies 29 entries at Drake Relays

The Drake Relays will take place April 25 to April 28 at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa. Read on for the West High qualifiers.

Both the girls and boys track teams competed at the Forwald/Coleman Relays at City High School on Thursday, April 19 in a last effort to qualify for the Drake Relays. The Trojans won with 160.5 points, lead by Austin West ’18, a University of Iowa track signee, who won each of his four events. The Women of Troy finished as the runner-up to 2017 4A state champion Waukee, who bested West by a 53.5-point margin.
