The Devils Lake track team will be sending two athletes to the state meet in Bismarck this weekend. Freshmen Bradley Davidson will be running in the 100 and 200 meter dash, while junior Katie Brandt will be competing in the discuss.
Davidson didn't expect to be going to the state meet this year, but is proud of the accomplishment.
'"It means a lot for me to be going to state this year. My teammates, classmates and coaches have been really supportive" said Davidson.
Katie Brandt is excited for the opportunity to be throwing the discuss over the weekend.
"Going to state shows that all of the hard work has paid off. Everyone has been so supportive and coaches have contributed so much to help me get better," said Brandt.
The Firebirds sent ten competitors to state last year, so this was a down year for them.
"Unfortunately we didn't get to add anyone else at the EDC's last weekend, but we're proud of Bradley and Katie," said head coach Jake Wateland.
The meet will be held at the Bismarck Community Bowl on Friday and Saturday. The first string of events will start at 10:30 am on Friday. Saturday's events are scheduled to begin at 9 am.
