BUTTE — With the Class AA state track and field meet in Kalispell just a day away it’s become crunch time for every team to finish up their final tweaks and get themselves ready for the big day.

The Butte High Bulldogs are doing just that this week. Almost every boys and girls track event will feature a Bulldog runner competing for the state crown. Butte is coming off fourth-place team finishes on both the boys and girls sides at the Eastern AA divisionals this past weekend.

However, the Bulldogs have turned their attention to the most important weekend of the season, and they feel ready to contend against the best in the Treasure State.

“We’re feeling really good. We don’t have a super-big squad, but we still have a good amount of kids out that can do a lot of work at state,” said Quinn Sullivan, who is qualified in the 110-meter hurdles. “There’s a lot of competition out there, but everyone’s been working as hard as possible, and there’s a really good chance that a lot of people can walk away with a lot of medals.”
