Gaels face stern test in Bondurant

BONDURANT — With weather likely to cause meets to be called off Tuesday, the St. Edmond girls opted to hit the track here Monday night.

Competing against a slew of new programs, the Gaels finished sixth overall. Adel-ADM was first with Pella second and North Polk third.

Mariah Myers continued her strong season, winning the shot put while placing second in the discus. Anna Lursen claimed the 400 title and the 4×800 relay of Ellie Knox, Hannah Landwehr, Michaela Leiting and Lursen finished first.

“This was some strong competition and good weather despite the wind,” SEHS head coach CJ Tracy said. “These girls went out and performed extremely well.

“We had several PRs in both individual and relay events. It was fun and exciting to watch because these girls are so much fun to be around. They just go out and give it everything they have in every event.”

Knox, Sasha Hess, Landwehr and Leiting were third in the distance medley with Lily Eslick placing eighth in the 3,000.

If the weather cooperates, the Gaels will head to Pocahontas Tuesday.
