Minden’s Addison Woodward has gone against some of the best track and field competition the state has to offer. On Friday, she will go against the very best at the state meet in Omaha.
Minden coach Shawn Wheelock said Woodward is not one to back down from a challenge.
“What we’ve found with Addi, is that she rises to the competition,” he said. “She’s seen the best, and she’s right there with them.”
Woodward will compete in the 100-meter dash, 200 and 400. Going into the state meet, Woodward boasts the second-best district performance in the 400 and the third in the 200.
The Whippets are also taking a talented 3,200 relay team, though as Wheelock said, it may not be a conventional lineup.
