Wetters reflects on improvement with Evart track
EVART — Micah Wetters has had a strong junior season for the Evart track and field team.
But he’s looking forward to the 2016 campaign as well.
“The 110s was my favorite,” he said at a recent meet. “I’ve been working hard to get it down to the 17s. I’ve had an injured leg most of the season. I’m starting to heal and it’s improving.”
Wetters was hoping to medal in various races. Robbie Tapling and Dillon Danley were other hurdlers.
Wetters pointed to the 110 hurdles as his best event. It’s his second year in the hurdles.
He improved in the hurdles from last year “a lot,” Wetters said. “I didn’t know how to do it at all. You have to be aggressive and willing to trip sometimes.”
He was looking for a 17.5 in the 100 and 43 in the 300s.
“We’re looking good and we hope to do some good things,” Wetters said as the Wildcats prepared for key meets.
Wetters occasionally did the high jump this season. Since the beginning of the season, Wetter indicated the team improved a lot.
Evart wound up taking second in the regionals and third in the Highland Conference meet.
