Key earns State trip

May 2, 2018

Wellman-Union’s Gracen Key wasn’t exactly sure what this year was going to hold for her. Coming off season ending knee surgery last year, Gracen missed Cross Country and Basketball seasons completely.

She missed the first part of track season before she was completely ready to run. But, when she was released, run she did!

Gracen will be competing in the State UIL Track Meet on May 12. She will actually be competing in two events.

She came in second in the 800 meter run and followed that up with a gold medal run in the 1600, running a 5:44.71 to make it to Austin in a second event.

Gracen ran a season-best time of 12:43.45 in the 3200 to finish in 3rd place at the Regional Track Meet, just shy of a third event at the State Meet.
