A Few Stories: 
(Warning! Warning! These stories reflect only the opinion of the author and nothing more)
The State meet went well for Southwest this year. Two years ago, only one Southwest athlete went to state and last year nine athletes participated. This year, eleven athletes qualified, many of them doing exceptionally well. Forrest Tahdooahnippah is the star of the team, outkicking the competition in the 3200 meter run to clinche a state championship. He came back the next day to finish fifth in the mile, running a personal best time. Jamie Cheever did not disappoint either, running to an impressive fourth place finish in the state. The all-star Women's 4x800 meter relay team finished seventh, and Hurdler stand-out Jendayi Berry finished 9th in the finals of the 300 Meter Intermediate Hurldes. Congratulations to all the athletes that participated in this year's State Meet!
