Local athletes hope to strike gold
For 10 local athletes, the time of decision is at hand. They will be competing in the 4A and 1A divisions of the UIL state track and field meet on Thursday through Saturday at Mike A. Myers Stadium in Austin.
Several have moderate to excellent chances to capture medals, including the gold, which goes to only one person in the state in each event.
Two of the entries have been there before -- Gatesville senior Jordan Brock and Jonesboro junior Alex Sarmiento. Both will be looking to improve over past performances.
