First ever Eastern Iowa Track and Field Festival deemed a success

West High hosted the first annual Eastern Iowa Track and Field Festival on Saturday, April 6.

The Eastern Iowa Track and Field Festival was held at West High on Saturday, April 6. With an emphasis on qualifying for the Drake Relays, the meet did not disappoint. 20 athletes achieved the Drake Relays Blue Standard including West High’s Kolby Greiner ’19 in the 3,200 meter run, Peyton Steva ’19 in the 100 meter hurdles and the quartet of Amy Liao ’21, Katie Severt ’19, Matayia Tellis ’21 and Steva in the 4×100 meter relay.

“I think the meet went great,” said Travis Craig, the boys head track and field coach and brains behind creating the track and field festival. “A lot of people had to work very hard to make it run smoothly, and it did.  To see the array of uniforms all competing in one place was really cool. To have excitement and enthusiasm for our sport for even one day is pretty cool. Good weather never hurts either.”
