Track and field: Minnewaska girls take fourth in Class A true team state meet
The Lakers had multiple top-five finishes and some wins at the Class A true team meet on Saturday.
The Minnewaska Lakers girls track and field finished as one of the best teams in the Class A true team state meet on Saturday in Stillwater as they placed fourth.
The Lakers scored 459.5 meet points.
“Overall, it’s where we expected to be,” Minnewaska girls head coach Jennifer Johnsrud told the West Central Tribune’s Joe Brown. “We were hoping for top three, which we got very close to.”
The Lakers had a win from McKenzie Luetmer in the 400m (59.14).
“Her senior leadership has just been remarkable all season,” Johnsrud said of Luetmer to the West Central Tribune. “She’s stepped up to the plate. She has a lot of experience in state meets, which is really helpful for us.”
The Lakers also had a win in the 4x800m relay (10:10.11).
Jayda Kolstoe broke the school record in the shot put (38-10.75) and place third. Lauryn Ankeny rounds out Minnewaska’s top-three finishes with a time of 48.56 in the 300m hurdles.
The Lakers compete in a sub-section meet on Tuesday at Maple Lake at 3 p.m.
