Crowley County's Robinette Dominates 2A Track

By  | 

Crowley County standout Shaylee Robinette once again had no peers at the Class 2A state track meet Saturday.

For the second year in a row, she won the 100, 200 and 400-meter dashes and the triple jump. As a sophomore, she also took gold in the 200, 400 and triple jump and was second in the 100-meter dash.

Those 11 gold medal performances were hard for Robinette to fathom Saturday.

''Doing this again (winning four state championships), hasn't sunk in,'' Robinette said. ''I know it's great feeling to end my high school career this way. I just feel that my success is a result of all the support my family, coaches and friends have given me.''

Robinette, who is headed to the University of Northern Colorado in the fall, won the 100, 200 and 400 with relative ease. The triple jump, however, was a different story.

Wray's Emily Post, on the second to last jump of the event, took the lead at 36-5.75.

''When she did that, I knew I had step up and come through,'' Robinette said. ''I definitely knew that I was capable of beating her.''

With one dramatic leap, Robinette sealed the triple jump victory by registering a 36-foot, 7-inch mark.
