For the first time since 2001 the Tiger Track & Field team claimed a 2A East Regional Championship over the weekend at Campbell County High School in Gillette. The Tigers put together 139 points to outdistance runner-up Saratogo which finished with 99 points. Burns finished in third with 87 points. Complete team placings include: Tongue River - 70 points, Big Horn, 70, Pine Bluffs 69, Sundance 37, Moorcroft 35, Wright 31 and Southeast 21. “The boys had an awesome weekend” commented Coach Dennis Zowada. “Prior to going into the weekend I thought we had a good chance of winning the track meet, but we would have to have a lot of things go our way and for the most part they did. This bunch of tracksters are pretty competitive and just don’t like to lose. We were very pleased with the way they competed in Gillette last Friday and Saturday.”
