As the school year comes to a close, so does the season for sports. For Boulder City’s track and field teams, their season ended Saturday with the 2015 Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association Track and Field State Championships at Del Sol High School.

The boys team finished sixth in Division I-A with 42 points, and the girls finished 17th with 10 points.

Faith Lutheran took home the 2015 NIAA Division I-A Track and Field State Champion titles for the girls and boys teams.

At the meet, both Boulder City teams were dominated by seniors trying to break their personal records for the last time.

Senior Brooks Roe finished his high school track and field career by earning the bronze for the 300-meter hurdles, with a personal record of 40.47. He also placed fifth for the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 15.91.

Brenden Cowley, a senior, achieved bronze for shot put, throwing his personal best 49-10. He also placed fifth in discus, throwing a distance of 136-07.
