Local Athletes Prepare For Regional Championships

Finishing up, more than a dozen local track and field athletes will be competing in the AAU Regional Championships this weekend.

Shanice Smith, running here in the grey, will take part in three different events. Including the 100, 200, and 400 meter dash. The Rockford All-
Star Team is made up of mostly high school students with a few middle schoolers mixed in. Boylan High standout, Kory Ramirez fills us in on the teams grueling practices..

"KORY: Well this week has probably been the hardest since the season ended. For Boylan anyway. These guys are working us pretty hard. At least it's getting us ready for the Regional Meet and all that."

The top 4 finishers in this weekend's regional championships will move on to the nationals in Tennessee.
