Hesston’s Tyler Rewerts – Athlete Spotlight Presented By Advanced Physical Therapy

By Matt Browning

At the 3A State Track Championships last season, Hesston’s Tyler Rewarts took fourth in the long jump—a accomplishment that most would gladly take.

Don’t get Rewerts wrong, he’s proud of what he did, but he also feels like that’s just the beginning and not just in the long jump, but the 100 and 400 as well.

“I would like to improve in multiple events this season,” Rewerts said. “I am always looking to increase and gain overall speed. I’d like to long jump over 23 feet this season as well. It started with summer weights and conditioning where we look to gain strength and also focused on speed. During the school year I’m in personal fitness and this winter I have been playing basketball. During the fall I did some specific speed and jump workouts with a personal trainer/college athlete.”

A successful season for Rewerts is twofold: what can he do in the postseason and can he break records?

“Individually, success would be defined by qualifying for state in multiple events and medaling at state,” Rewerts said. “Event-wise, I would like to set the school record in long jump which is 23’6”, and run sub 50 seconds in the 400.”

Next year, Rewerts is going to run track at McPherson College and he wants to major in Business Finance or Entrepreneurship.
