Wolves perform strong at WIC Conference Coed Track Meet

It was a cold night at AHSTW Community School as nine schools competed in the WIC Conference coed track meet. Wolves head girls track and field coach Emma Konkler spoke on behalf of their performance.

“Overall our strongest finishes came from our distance group,” Konkler said. “Emily Albertsen and Morgan Hanson both pushed each other to place in both the 3000 and the 1500.”

Konkler went on to address that these two girls set records in their events.

“Morgan PRed in the 3000 by 15 seconds and the 1500 by about 5 seconds,” she said. “Emily PRed in the 1500 by about 2 seconds.”

Konkler was pleased with the efforts her team put forth in such a tough competition.

“Overall the team did a nice job of getting out and pushing themselves in a really tough and competitive conference,” she added.

Wolves boys head track and field coach Kyle Vanderhorst was satisfied with how his boys competed.

“I was very pleased with how our kids competed,” Vanderhorst said. “We had a few guys out with injuries and we set a goal for a top three team finish in the standings.”

Vanderhorst acknowledged a few individuals who stood out and broke records.

“Caden Keller and Lane Sams set PR's in the 3200 and 1600 respectively along with an individual conference championship for both in those races,” he said. “Reed Hinners ran a lifetime best in the 1600 and was runner up.”

On May 12 at 4 p.m., the boys track and field team will be competing at 1A-1 State Qualifying Meet at Audubon High School.

“I feel like our team is in a good place right now going into the State Qualifying Meet next week at Audubon,” he added. “The athletes have been working hard all season and we are excited to see what they can do next week.”
