Of the Spurger track team participants, one runner, Robby Clark, advanced to the regional meet for the chance to advance to state.
Clark is a junior at Spurger High and has continued to participate in track throughout his high school career. Very competitive in track, Clark took part in the 3200 meter run, that is made up of running two miles on the track, as well as the 800 meter dash, which is two spirted laps around the track. He was the only Pirate to advance to regionals this year, and the first to make is this far for Spurger for the past couple of years. Although he ran with much heart, he did not advance to state. Clark represented Spurger exceptionally well, placing twelfth place overall. He and the coaches are proud of this accomplishment and are eager to see Clark be able to compete next year as well.
