Athlete of the Week - Keaton VanHousen, JR., High Plains

The spring sports season got underway last week, but due to dangerous weather forcing meet cancellations around the state, not many area track and field teams competed. The High Plains boys did, however, and junior Keaton VanHousen scored 18 of his team’s 54 points at the Bulldog Challenge on the campus of Concordia University Friday morning in Seward. VanHousen won the 60-meter dash with a time of 7.31 seconds and took second in the triple jump, leaping to a mark of 39 feet, 11 ½ inches. His performance helped High Plains place third in the boys’ team standings.
