LEROY \u2014 Devyn Powell qualified for Pine River in the cross country state finals as a freshman and wouldn\u2019t mind enjoying similar success in the outdoor track season this spring. Powell and the Bucks were scheduled for a home meet Wednesday of this week, weather permitting. This weekend, the Bucks will run at the St. Louis Relays. This season, Powell anticipates running the 200, 400, the 800-meter relay and perhaps the 800 meter run. She\u2019s figuring the 400 will be her best event. \u201cLast year I got a minute flat (at the junior high level), so I\u2019m hoping to be able to break that,\u201d Powell said. \u201cIt will take quite a bit of work.\u201d She has a good finish in the 400 and Powell said she\u2019s focusing on her endurance level. She\u2019s expecting help in producing points in her events. \u201cWe\u2019re such a young team that it\u2019s going to be hard, but I think we do have the skill,\u201d Powell said. Getting outdoors will be critical, but Powell said she\u2019s been able to get in some work. Sheena Vokes is a junior for the Bucks in the 4 by 1, 4 by 2, 100 and 200. \u201cBoth of my relay teams got to go to state, and that was my first year so that was pretty encouraging,\u201d she said. \u201cWe got sixth in both of them.\u201d Vokes was the third leg in the 800-meter relay and fourth in the 400. She\u2019ll run both relays this year. \u201cWe have none of the same people,\u201d she said, adding that being anchor \u201cis a lot of pressure, but I like the feeling of helping my team, especially if we\u2019re behind.\u201d In the 100, Vokes\u2019 best time last season was a 12.6 and she\u2019s looking for a 12.5 this season. Accelerating during her sprint has been a strength, Vokes said. In the sprints, \u201cit\u2019s going to be average for us,\u201d she said. \u201cWe have some distances and we have some sprinters. We\u2019re very young this year. I\u2019m looking forward to seeing how we come together.\u201d Vokes expects Beal City and Manton will be the toughest Highland Conference teams.
