Knoxville placed second in the boy’s team race at the Class three-A State Track and Field Meet Qualifier last night. Right now five events have automatically qualified for the Panthers. Nathan Winters in the shot put and discus as he won both, also Tanner Dunkin in the 100, 200, and 400. The Knoxville Girls Track and Field Squad finished sixth in the team standings at the state qualifier last night. No individual or relay made the state meet automatically, however Sidney Washington’s third place in the 400 bears watching for a wildcard spot. Her time of 1:05.71 was only a couple tenths off the runner up time.
