Two greats nights of track & field weather in a row weren’t in the cards for the Greene County High School squads. After Monday’s Ram Relays in Jefferson had nearly perfect conditions, that wasn’t the case on Thursday at the Tiger-Knight Relays in Carroll. Temperatures hovered around 50 degrees under cloudy skies with some northwest wind.
The Greene County girls didn’t take the whole squad and entered just 11 of the 19 events. They were not originally scheduled to go to this meet. Megan Durbin won the high jump at 5′ 2″ in a jump-off with two others, and the 4 x 200 meter relay of Tieryn Tucker, Melanie Doran, Olivia Hansen, and Durbin placed first in 1:54.54. The 4 x 100 was second in 53.00 with Melanie and Megan Doran, Hansen, and Durbin, and Janelle Brophy went 14′ 7″ in the long jump to finish in second place.
The best finish for the Greene County boys was second. Kolin Reed was the runner-up in the high jump at 5′ 6″. The Rams had a season best in the 4 x 100 meter relay in 45.46 seconds with Logan Lansman, Chase Stoline, Clint Dennhardt, and Nick Schroeder, and placed third.
The girls’ team champion was Denison-Schleswig with 105 points. Dallas Center-Grimes had 98 with Creston at 93, Boone 80, Carroll 64, the Rams 58, Atlantic 48, and 35 for Kuemper Catholic.
Atlantic had 161 points to win the boys’ title with Kuemper Catholic next at 128, followed by D-S 117, Carroll 80, 56 for the Rams, and 30 from Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln.
The Greene County teams go to Woodward on Tuesday.
