TigerHawk gals open indoor season

The North Fayette Valley girls’ track team opened the 2014 season at the Wartburg Indoor Track Meet on Tuesday, March 18.

No team scores are kept at this particular meet. NFV did not take home any medals, but competed well in the 20-team field, many of which already had one or more indoor meets under their belts.

Stephanie Koch and Regan Wolverton were the closest to earning medals with fourth-place finishes (Koch in the 55 hurdles and Wolverton in the 800).

It may be hard to draw any conclusions from the first race of the season. One good thing for TigerHawk fans is the fact the girls doubled up in six events, including the long jump, shot, 200- and 400-meter dashes, 55 hurdles and the 800.

In the relays, the 4x400 led the way for NFV as Jade Daughton, Becca Miller, Shelby Lehmann, and Wolverton combined for an eighth-place finish.

The TigerHawk girls have their first outdoor meet on Tuesday, April 1, at Waverly-Shell Rock High School. The gals return home that Friday for the first home meet of the season; West Central, Kee, Tripoli, Dunkerton and Valley Lutheran will be in West Union.
