By Kelsie Hoitomt

The Glenwood City track and field team competed at the St. Croix Central High School last Tuesday, May 6. They were scheduled to be in Amery on Thursday, but severe weather cancelled the event.

The girls performed well with a third place finish out of ten teams with 95.4 points. The boys’ team finished sixth with a total of 71 points.

The girls’ team earned a good amount of their points from the relay teams that had another stellar week on the track including the 4×800, 4×200 and 4×100.

The 4×200 meter relay team consisting of Kayla Bloss, Macie Rasmussen, Kaylie Scalze and Maya Petersen placed second with a time of 1:57.09. First went to SCC who was less than a minute ahead with a 1:56.41.

The 4×800 team also placed second, which featured Taylor Drinkman, Morgan Kadinger, Jenny Lindquist and Jennifer Kopacz. They ran a 10:44.45 and first went to Elmwood/Plum City with a 10:38.45.

Lastly, the 4×100 team was second with a quick sprint of 53.91 by Bloss, Kopacz, Gabby Peterson and Kadinger. SCC took first in that relay as well with a time of 52.46.

Also finishing in the top two on the girls’ team was Kadinger in the high jump after she cleared 4’ 10”, which put her in first. Madison Malecek was the closest jump to her with a 4’ 8”.

Rachel Klatt also brought home a first place finish after she tossed the shot put a distance of 34’ 7”, which was an improvement from her prior week in Boyceville where she hit 33’ 5”.

As for the boys’ team, it was senior Isaac Tuttle who continued to top the 100 meter, this time with a first place finish of 12.20.

Tuttle led the boys’ 4×100 meter relay team which placed first after he, Nick Mrdutt, Charlie Shackett and Sam Melendrez ran a 46.94. First place went to Somerset with a time of 45.32.

Shackett also ran a perfect race for himself in the 200 meter dash with a first place finish from his time of 22.97.

The next scheduled track meet was on Tuesday, May 13 in Colfax. They are then set to host their first varsity track meet of the season on Thursday.
