Eaton Reds 2023 track season

Eaton’s track team prepares for a great season


With the 2023 track season quickly approaching, the Reds have their sights set on bringing home the championship come May. They began official practices on Monday, Feb. 27, and will be grinding the rest of the season in the hunt for a state title. 

The team is led by returning high jump state champion Zac Grable (23), and he is very optimistic about the team’s success this season. Grable said, “Our team is looking pretty stacked honestly… we have a very strong boys and girls team and we have a great chance of winning state this year for the boys.” 

Grable won the 3A boys high jump title with a mark of 6’5” and will be looking to defend his title this season as well. Even though it will not be easy Grable said, “Winning state last year gave me a lot of confidence. I think it’s because now I know I can do it again and it takes a lot of hard work and dedication to be a back-to-back state champ.” After the conclusion of this year’s season, Grable will be continuing his track and football career at Western State University, in Gunnison, Colorado. 

Senior Logan Gullett (23) will be defending his state title in the 3200-meter race this year and will be helping lead the reds to a state championship, before continuing his cross-country and track career at Colorado State University next fall. 

 Western Carolina commit Dakota Braucher (23), and returning rookie of the year Trent Salberg (23) will also be major factors in the Red’s success this season. They will also be adding many new talented athletes to the lineup who are looking to have a competitive first season. 

Senior Trent Salberg (23) will be running the 4×100 relay, 4×200 relay, and triple jump. Salberg had a very successful rookie season last year as a junior, winning rookie of the year and qualifying for state. 

The Reds have a very promising season ahead of them and many people are looking forward to watching them compete.
