Brothers bring home ribbons
July 12, 2013
Brothers Dawson and Race Cockman competed at the Nevada state Hershey’s Track and Field Games on June 22 at Reed High School and came away with two wins each.
Dawson, competing in the 13-14 year old category, won the 100m, 200m and placed second in the softball throw. Younger brother Race, competing in the 11-12 year old category, won the 200 meter and standing broad jump and was second in the 100 meter. The Hershey state meet is a national qualifier.
Winners in each event are placed into a regional pool (Nevada is part of the region which includes California, Utah and Arizona) and the fastest times and distances in each respective age group and event qualify for the national championships held in Hershey, Pa. The national meet will be held Aug. 1-4, 2013.
