Tough Track Competition
April 25, 2012
The High School girls traveled to Creighton for the annual invite. Even though we scored only 8 points to finish last our two relays ran season best times. The 3200 relay team actually ran one of the 10 fastest times in class D this season and still finished 4th on the day. The team members of Ashley Schmit, Kathryn Kuchta, Emily Schnoor, and Mackenzie Lemmons ran to a time of 10:47.2, 15 seconds faster than we had all season. The same girls teamed on the 1600 relay and ran a season best time of 4:40.2 but only finished 6th. Ashley and Mackenzie picked up the only other 2 medals on the day finishing 5th and 6th in the 800 with times of 2:40 & 2:41.1 respectively. The other girls on the team also competed well.
The Junior high girls had a pretty good day on Monday the 23rd, traveling to Hartington for the always tough Crofton invite. This is a combined 7th/8th grade meet. We finished 4th with 67 points trailing Crofton, Hartington Public, and HCC who had 69 points. We also scored in 12 of the 15 events on the day including 2 winners and 2 good second places and many season bests.
