At the start of the season, every runner, thrower and jumper in the state of Iowa has their eyes on Des Moines and the state championship meet.
During the past week, athletes from Griswold, Essex, Stanton, East Mills, Southwest Valley and Red Oak competed in district qualifying meets.
Classes 1A, 2A and 3A will be represented by Southwest Iowa athletes.
The Stanton boys have had dominant seasons from Chris Jones and Alex Betchold, and unsurprisingly those are the two athletes the Vikings are sending to state.
