The 13-team Elwood Track Invitational was held on March 29 in quite cool (make that cold) weather. Wilcox-Hildreth was among the schools competing and the Falcon girls came in seventh with 31 (the top three being Maxwell (99), Bertrand (91) and South Loup (55.5)) while the W-H boys finished ninth with 29.5 (as South Loup (123), Brady (63) and Bertrand (61) were the top trio).
Coach Meyers’ summary: Despite the weather we had a good meet with some very good performances. For the boys, Garrett Ortgiesen won the long jump. AJ Jenkins and Sidney Gruwell continue to perform well.
AJ was fourth in the pole vault and third in the 300 intermediate hurdles. Sidney was second in the triple jump although having the same distance as the winner but due to not having the better second jump, he was second.
