Track teams finish well in first meet

After an Easter snowfall on April 1, the track and field meet scheduled for Tuesday, April 3, was canceled. Thus, the Sabetha High School track and field teams had to postpone the start of their season until last Tuesday, April 10. The teams traveled to Royal Valley, and both boys’ and girls’ teams took third at the meet.

Head Coach Dave Remmers said the coaches were excited to have decent weather for the athletes to compete in for this first meet.

“Our numbers are really up this year. and we have a lot of new athletes, so we needed a meet to see how everyone would do,” Remmers said. “The coaches are very pleased with the overall effort and competitiveness of our kids, and look forward to seeing them get in better shape and become more competitive.”

Boys

The boys’ team placed first in three events. Earning first place were junior Mason Engelken in the 110-meter and 300-meter hurdle events, and junior Braeden Cox in the high jump. Engelken had a career best of 15.33 in the 110-meter hurdles.

Girls

The girls’ team placed first in two events. Earning first place was junior Megan Meyer in the high jump, and the 4×800-meter relay team of junior Skylar McAfee, sophomores Nikole Kuenzi and Hannah Wertenberger and freshman Hattie Lukert.

The teams traveled to Jackson Heights on Tuesday, April 17. Those results were not available at The Herald’s press time.
