Boys Finish Third

The Ord High School track and field teams competed in the LouPlatte Conference meet this past Friday in Loup City.  The Chanticleer girls had an outstanding day as they won the conference team title.  “Our girls really had a good day”, Coach Derry Trampe stated.  “We had a lot of good things happen on the day and were able to hold on and claim a team title.  Our long and triple jumpers really had a great day as Journi Moran and Lexi Vancura finished 1st and 2nd in the long jump respectively.  Right after the long jump they put together another great effort in the triple jump and finished 1st and 3rd.  Those two girls scored 34 out of our 85 points in the meet.  That was really a great way for us to start the meet.”  The chants scored 85.3 points to just edge St. Paul for the team title.  The Wildcats scored 81 points to finish as the meet runner-up.  Doniphan-Trumbull and Wood River finished 3rd and 4th respectively with 73.3 and 70.3 points.  Rounding out the team scoring were: Central City (65), Centura (57), Arcadia-Loup City (43), Gibbon (30), and Ravenna (22).

Centura won the team title in the boys’ portion of the meet with 113 points.  St. Paul finished second with 98 points.  The Chants scored 71 points to finish in third.  “I thought our boys had a really good day at conference”, Coach Trampe said.  “We had a lot of personal best performances and we competed really well.  I had us figured to finish in third if we competed well and we did.  I am really proud of the way all of our kids competed.”  Rounding out the team scores were: Doniphan-Trumbull (62), Wood River (52), Central City (46), Ravenna (36), Gibbon (28), and Arcadia-Loup City (21).
