Girls track and field team still making progress
BROKEN BOW—Conflicting activities and injuries kept a few Gothenburg girls from competing at the Broken Bow Invite on Friday.
Still, there was plenty to celebrate as the Swedes finished fourth as a team with a host of individual success stories for the week.
McCook took the team title with 155 points followed by Holdrege at 116 points.
“We saw a lot of good things happen,” said coach Steve Reeves.
Senior Joslyn Oliver was the only Swede girl to earn a gold medal. She finished first in the high jump by clearing her best height so far this season at 5 foot, 3 inches.
Other girls set new personal best marks.
Freshman Abbie Mazour, competing in her first outdoor varsity meet this season, clocked 6:13.7 for sixth in the 1600-meter and placed third in the 3200-meter run in a time of 13:28.2.
Junior Kersten Nelson threw her personal best in the shot to place second with a distance of 35-3.5.
“Getting runner-up is great for her,” Reeves said.
