track 3

The Ord High School track and field teams had another successful outing this past Friday at the St. Paul Invitational.  Both the girls and boys finished first in the eight-team field.  “We had a really good day on Friday”, Coach Derry Trampe commented.  “Not only did we win both meets but our kids had a total of 26 personal best performances on a day that was tough for running.  I am very pleased with the way we are performing as a group right now.  We have a lot of depth that I didn’t think we would have, and we also have some high-quality performers.”  The boys scored 122 points to just edge out St. Paul (120) for the top spot in the team race.  Centura was distant third with 90 points.  “I was a little surprised that our boys were able to win the meet”, Trampe said.  “St. Paul has a very good team, but our kids just competed really well.”  Rounding out the team scoring for the boys were:  Burwell (77), Wood River (46), Central City (34), Ravenna (30), and Palmer (7).

The girls dominated the field finishing 38.5 points ahead of the second-place team.  The Chants scored 142.5 points to finish well ahead of Centura (104).  “We have a lot of quality points on our team”, Trampe stated.  “We can pick up a lot of first and second place points with our girls and we still have enough depth to earn a lot of points for 4th through 6th place finishes.  I am really pleased with how hard our girls compete.”  Rounding out the team scores for the girls were: St. Paul (87), Wood River (71), Ravenna (48), Central City (37), Burwell (31.5), and Palmer (5).
