Storm Track Team

The track season has not gotten off to a great start. “The weather has been miserable,” explained Head Coach, Mike Mayer. “We were finally able to get out to the track last week, but there are still some places under water that aren’t usable to us. It was really nice for the throwers to get outside so they could actually practice throwing instead of just foot work in the gym,” he continued. The cold and wet spring has led to a couple cancellations of early meets this year, and will continue to wreck havoc with the schedule. However, several members of the team traveled to Fargo for an indoor meet on March 29. As Mayer said, “We only took a few members, and they did pretty well.” Connor Ottmar placed second in the long jump and triple jump; Zoey Heid placed second in the 60-meter hurdles; Isabelle Boyer placed sixth in the long jump; Faith Marion placed third in the triple jump and placed in the long jump; and Rayman Zimmerman placed fifth in the high jump and also placed in the 400-meter dash.
