Petterson, Iselt in Region Track and Field
Rhiem Petterson and Dylan Iselt will represent Lexington at the Region IV-AA Track and Field meet to be held Monday May 2nd and Tuesday May 3rd. The meet will be held at the D.W. Rutledge Stadium in Judson, Texas.
Petterson has the best time of all eight of the district meets in the 110 High Hurdles. Petterson’s time of 15.22 seconds is .07 seconds better than the second place time. In the actual race that amounts to about six inches.
Iselt will be running in the 200 Meter Dash. His district time of 22.57 is just a half second behind the second best qualifying time. Iselt stands a great chance of making the finals and a good chance of making it to state.
Petterson will also be in the High Jump. His district jump of 5’10” is far below the best height of 6’8”. But, who knows, high jumpers can have career days when the adrenaline gets to pumping and off days when nothing goes right.
