Roughriders News · Varsity Track Athletes Going to the State Finals


Roeper Track competed in their Regional Track meet on Friday sending six athletes in four events to the MHSAA Track and Field State Championship.  Jada Coburn started things off by placing 2nd in the discus with a toss of 87’5″.  Will Hoover, Cameron Robinson, Carter Wade, and David Cornier-Bridgeforth ran a season best in the 4x800m relay and were crowned Regional Champions!  Will Hoover and Victoria Gersch also had outstanding performances in the 800m run and each won their race handily as they took first place by several seconds from the closest competitior.  Victoria Gersch missed breaking the school record by one tenth of a second, look for that record to drop soon.  The State Finals will take place in Grand Rapids on June 2nd.
