Girls depth on display at Cozad Invite
Swedes place first or second in 10 events.
Gothenburg girls scored in all but one event Friday at the Cozad Invitational track meet.
The Swedes featured five gold medal performances.
“It’s kind of a tune-up meet,” Gothenburg coach Steve Reeves said. “We just want to try to get to district as healthy and as tuned up as we can be.”
The highlight of the meet for Gothenburg came when Aryn Meisinger cracked the 10-foot barrier in the pole vault. Her 10-0 jump bumps her up a spot on the Swede all-time chart to a tie for No. 3.
Other individual gold medal winners included Madi Gilg in the 100 (:13.6), Andie Geiken in the 400 (1:02.07), Sydney Gruber in the 3200 (14:09.43) and Taylor Mroczek in the 300-meter hurdles.
Gothenburg will compete Thursday in the District B6 meet at Ogallala. Field events start at 10:30 a.m. MDT, while running events begin at 1 p.m. MDT.
