Headed for district meet

best (this year).”

Light­foot is not the only per­son who be­lieves the team will do well.

“I hope we do well, we have 64 ( com­peti­tors) and I hope 25- ish go to re­gion­als,” said Coach Melissa Hyson.

Hyson has been an ac­tive coach in the Cen­tral Kings com­mu­nity and says the track and field com­mu­nity is nice, with no real ri­val­ries.

“It’s re­ally a big com­mu­nity so we’re never re­ally pick­ing it against one school or the other, I know there are some re­ally good ath­letes at other schools that some of our ath­letes have com­peted against every year, like each in­di­vid­ual ath­lete has it’s own ri­val,” she said.

The CK Ga­tors have pre­vi­ously won at dis­tricts and provin­cials in Di­vi­sion 2, but this year, the team is com­pet­ing in Di­vi­sion 1. That, says Hyson, will be a big chal­lenge to CK’s com­peti­tors.

“Way big­ger com­pe­ti­tion at provin­cials this year be­cause we’ll be against CEC, Parkview, and Citadel High which are all big Di­vi­sion 1 schools, so com­pe­ti­tion is stiffer this year,” she added.
