Waterloo East Girls look to score at Coed State Track

Posted: Updated:

Last month at the Drake Relays--- Waterloo East freshman Kerris Roberts officially introduced herself to the track world ---setting a Drake Relays record in winning the 100 meter dash.

Tomorrow-- Roberts and her East High teammates are preparing to score big at the coed state track meet in Des Moines...

Roberts is in four of the six events that the Trojans are taking to state---but head coach Richard Carter says East is far from being a one person team.

Carter said, "Coming in number 2 in the 4 by 100 and fourth in the 2 by 200... and of course Kerris is number one in the 100 and the 200 and Alana is coming in number ten of course we have a lot of potential to score some points be the first time in a long time if we can get some points on the board which would be a great accomplishment--this is a great bunch of kids i hope they understand these moments don't always happen I hope they can enjoy this moment but also capture this moment..."

The coed state meet runs through Saturday.
