The Chanticleer track and field teams had one of their best days of the season on Monday, April 8 at the annual Arcadia-Loup City Invitational.  The girls finished third in the 11-team meet to record their highest finish of the season. The boys finished fourth in the meet that featured 11 teams.  “I was really happy with the way our kids performed in this meet”, Coach Derry Trampe stated. “We had a nice day and our kids really took advantage of it.  We had 29 personal best performances on the day and brought home a lot of medals.” The boys scored 73 points to earn their finish. Grand Island CC won the meet with 127.5 points while St. Paul was second with 119 points.  Ansley-Litchfield finished just ahead of the Chants with 82 points. Rounding out the team scores were: Ravenna (63), Burwell (54), Arcadia-Loup City (53), Central Valley (45.5), Wood River (25.5), Riverside (12.5), and Spalding Academy (8).

They are really coming along nicely.”  Second place medals were won by Kloe Severance in the 1,600-meter run and by Payton Hackel in the 300-meter LH.
