It’s indoor track & field meet number two of the 2018 season today for the Greene County High School girls. The Rams were in Cedar Falls last week for the Dickinson Relays inside the UNI-Dome on the Northern Iowa campus last Monday, and today they go to Ames to compete at the Iowa State High School Classic inside the Lied Recreation Center. The boys go to the same place tomorrow.

Girls’ head coach Derek Merk will be taking a partial squad to Ames. Action starts at 3 p.m. today for girls and at 3 p.m. tomorrow for boys. One of the first events is the high jump, where Greene County senior Megan Durbin is expected to compete. She jumped 5′ 2″ at this meet a year ago, but went 5′ 3″ last week in Cedar Falls. Durbin is the most accomplished high jumper in program history and is an Iowa State recruit.

Durbin talked with Raccoon Valley Radio about her goals for the 2018 season. “My mentality going into the season is to have fun. Obviously, I want to do well, and I’ve gone to a few guys to help me with high jump. We kind of took down my technique from last year, which is completely different, so I’m kind of iffy about the high jump, but also really excited. For sprints, I want to make it to State in at least one event pretty much every year.”
