“Katie Saner had a big night by winning the 100, 200, 400 and anchoring the 4x400. She also had a personal record in the 100 dash. Kristen Reicks had a personal record in the shot put (36 feet). We doubled up our points in a lot of events. Cassidy Ihns ran well in the 1500 and the 3000. Ellie Friesen also had a good night (taking first in the 800 and the 3000).
“No one on our team had a bad day at the meet. It was great to see the girls perform well against so many good teams at the meet. In the field events alone, we scored 30 points. Lexi Hoppe had a personal record in the long jump at 15 feet, 11 inches. 
“In the 4x800, our half milers did a great job. They included: Emily Friesen, Rachel Steffen, Sarah Mashek and Hope Dohlman. It was nice for us to get on a track outside, and we appreciate North Fayette Valley doing a lot to get ready to host the meet,” Obermann said.
