With the warm weather approaching, so is the girls track and field season. The girls were forced to postpone their first meet, which was supposed to be held Friday, April 8, due to bad weather. With such a big roster and very little seniors, the team is young and on the rise. This being the seniors’ last year, it’s their last shot at a run to state. Senior captain Carli Langeland said, “I feel like the team is ready for the meet today, because we’ve been practicing indoor for a while now so I think almost everyone is ready to start competing. My goals for my final track season would be to improve my jumps and place in the top three at sections.” The girls’ first meet was at home last Tuesday where they scored together with the boys, the teams combined scored first and won the meet. Head Coach Mrs. Ann Christensen said, “Our co-ed meet went very well, it was great to get out for the first time and see the team compete. The co-ed meet is always a lot of fun and the girls really enjoy it! We have great leadership from our seniors and our captains, Mary Biegert, Steph Kretlow and Carli Langeland.” Their next home meet will be home on April 26 at 4:30 p.m..
