Tolar vaulters qualify for state, relay suffers heartbreak

The Tolar boys 1600-meter relay team was leading the race Saturday at the 2A Region II Track and Field Meet at Tarleton State University, but a meet official disqualified them on the third leg claiming there was interference with another lane, Rattlers coach Gregg Lee said. That means that Friday’s two state qualifiers (pole vaulters Rodie Brister and Reagan Mabery) are still the school’s only two state qualifers at this point . Tolar apparently missed out on a chance for a third state qualifier after Garrett Winston’s 43-11 triple jump did not qualify as a wild card after all the regional meet times were compared, Lee said.
