OMAHA, Neb. (KSNB) - All of the 2022 State track and field champions have been crowned for Classes A and B. As attentions turn toward Classes C and D on Thursday and Friday, Local4 is reflecting on which area athletes took home gold medals in the first two days.

The Northwest quad of Kyra Ray, Avyn Urbanski, Grace Baasch and Samantha Roby set a new State and meet record Thursday to win the gold medal in the Class B girls 400-meter relay with a time of 48.12 seconds.

“Oh my gosh (we’re) on top of the world,” Roby said. “That was the coolest thing. That’s what we were trying to get the whole time. We wanted to get a faster time than we did in districts and we just went out and did it and had so much fun. We’ve tried so hard and worked these handoffs so many times and just trusting each other and it felt really good.”
