2 Brady athletes prep for regional

Two athletes from Brady High School are competing in the Region IV Class 3A track meet with the top two finishers in each event advancing to the state meet in May. Sophomore Kayce Pollok, who finished second at the District 26-3A meet on April 9 in her specialty, the 400-meter dash, running a 60.79 seconds, will run at 6:15 p.m. Friday in the preliminaries at Texas A&M-Kingsville’s Javelina Stadium. If she qualifies for the finals, she’ll run again at 2:20 p.m. Saturday. Junior Johnny Menefield, who also finished second in his top race, the 200-meter dash, running a 23.34 second clocking, will be in the prelims at 6:55 p.m. Friday in Javelina Stadium. If he qualifies for the finals, he’ll run again at 3 p.m. Saturday. Brady girls’ coach, Nicole Jones, said that Pollok won her race at Wall last Friday in a warm-up track meet for regional qualifiers. “We posted a 62.50 in a very strong wind,” Jones said. “I felt it was a very good time considering the conditions.” The coach said it was Kayce’s goal to break 60 seconds at Kingsville. “Kayce has a great attitude and has worked very hard all spring,” Jones said. Menefield also had a fine outing at Wall. He was second in the 200, running a personal best 22.95 seconds. “He got a good start at Wall, and finished strong. He is improving with each meet,” boys’ coach Doug Holtzclaw said.
