HUNTSVILLE TRACK AND FIELD — Senior Audie Wyatt makes his impression at Relays

HUNTSVILLE — As the only one representing Huntsville at the Texas Relays in Austin on Saturday, Audie Wyatt took fifth place in the Flight A pole vaulting group, clearing 16.275 feet.

“I was with the best of the best,” Wyatt said. “It was the best of pretty much the state of Texas and even the country.”

At the Bryan Rudder track meet the week before, Wyatt cleared 16 1/2 feet, which was a new personal best for him. It also moved him up to ranking second place in state, and broke the Huntsville pole vault record again, which he set last year when he won first place in the Flight B at the Texas Relays.

Even with the impressive performance, Wyatt felt like he could have done even better at the Relays.

“I am kind of proud but I still know I could have done better,” he said. “I could have placed in the top 3 for sure. I feel I have the potential to do way better.”

Now Wyatt has bigger goals of reaching 18 feet on the pole vault and eventually winning state after the district meet in Brenham next week and the regional meet at Sam Houston State on April 25 and 26.

“I want to win state,” he said. “That’s all I’m aiming for right now.”

    Sam Houston State football coach K.C. Keeler made it a point to talk up his quarterbacks this offseason, although he admitted after practice on Thursday that he’s not thrilled with the progress his signal callers have made during the first week of training camp.
    Keeler has gone on the record on multiple occasions to say sophomores Don King III and Jared Johnson have as good of a skill set as any quarterback in the Southland, but Keeler acknowledges that the position will remain a gigantic question mark for Sam Houston until someone decides to run away with the competition.
