Senior Terrence Williams will be trying to qualify for next week’s Class 6-1A state track and field meet in Wichita by finishing in the top four in a trio of jumping events.
    Williams and his Dodge City High School teammates will be taking part in a 6A regional Friday at Wichita Southeast. Field events start at 3:30., followed by preliminary track events at 4:30 and the finals 30 minutes after the prelims.
    Williams, the Western Athletic Conference champion in the high jump at six-feet, four inches last week at Memorial Stadium, will also be vying for state berths in the triple jump and long jump.
    He finished second in the triple jump at the WAC meet  (43-5 1/2) and fifth in the long jump (21-4).
    “He’s been pretty consistent,” DCHS boys coach Buc Bolmer said. “Triple jump is definitely his best event.
    “He’s got all three phases down. I think he’d be disappointed if he didn’t qualify in all three events.”
    J.D. Bouyer will be trying to qualify in the sprints. He clocked 11.80 in the 100-meter dash for sixth place, and 23.39 for fourth in the 200 at the WAC meet.
    “He’ll hopefully have a good day,” Bolmer said of Bouyer. “He’s been lowering his times in each meet all year ’long.”
     In the throws, “Bryce Sonday and Bruce Campbell both have a good shot,” Bolmer said. “Bruce has a shot in the discus, and Bryce has a good shot in the shot put.”
    Campbell was a fourth-place finisher in the discus at the WAC meet (135-1), and Sonday finished sixth in the shot (45-4 3/4).
    “He’s just dedicated,” Bolmer said of Sonday, only a freshman. “He works on his technique. He likes to fine-tune things to get better. He’s a good technician.”
    Vincente Estrella will be competing in the 1,600 run, an event he placed fourth at the WAC meet (4:36.80).
    “I think he has a shot in the 1,600,” Bolmer said of Estrella.
