LAKE CITY — Todd Constable called it an “awesome night” to run.

And his Fort Dodge girls track and field team delivered strong performances here Friday at the South Central Calhoun Invitational.

The Dodgers placed second overall, winning six events including five relays.

Aleaha Pommer picked up the lone individual event, capturing the 200-meter dash. She was also part of the winning 4×200 and 4×400 relays.

Fort Dodge’s 4×100 relay of Keyonna Douglas, Haley Wills, Tory Bennett and Martyne Lowrey set a new personal-record in 51.56.

Lowrey, Wills, Bennett and Piera McBride claimed first in the sprint medley, Mackenzie McIlrath, Morgan Bodholdt, Alexis Ross and Eileen Fierke won the 4×800, Douglas, Wills, Bennett and Pommer captured the 4×200 and Pommer, McBride, McIlrath and Bennett the 4×400.

“It was just a great night to run,” Constable said. “It was nice to run against some different competition, more local competition, especially because we could be seeing more of these teams in the future.”

Gracie Miller was the runner-up in the discus with Isabel Beekman doing the same in the 3000. Bodholdt added silver in the 1500 and the quartet of Maggie Elsbecker, Aeva Alstott, Maia Davis and Lainey Maehl were second in the distance medley.

Lowrey added a third in the 100.

Fort Dodge competes next on Tuesday when they travel to Mason City for the CIML Iowa Conference Invitational.
