The fastest times of the season weren't enough to help the remaining KHS track members score points at the Arizona State track meet.

"They did a good job, but our best times just wasn't good enough," coach Bob York said.

The meet was split over two days last week, preliminaries on Wednesday and finals on Saturday.

Matt Snay qualified for two events in the state meet. He ran the 1600-meter on Wednesday and the 3200 on Saturday. His finished eighth in his section in the 1600, with a time of 4 minutes, 35.90 seconds. In the 3200, Snay finished 15th overall in a time of 10:04.20

The other male runner representing Kingman was senior Herb Askew, who ran in the 400 preliminary.

He took third in the third heat with a time of 50.60 but missed out on qualifying for the finals by two-tenths of a second.

The girls 4x400 relay team finished seventh in the third heat of the preliminaries, with a time of 4:30.99.

The girl's 4x800 team took eighth finishing the race in 10:15.78, but neither team qualified for the finals.

Individually, Jessica Reinoso represented the Bulldogs in the 800 on Saturday. She finished 11th in 2:22.96.

The Desert West region did not name a All-Region team this season.

"We had a good season," York said. "The kids really worked hard and it was fun for me."
