Glenwood second, third at Atlantic Co-Ed

-A A +A

The Glenwood boys track team rested some of its top runners and shuffled lineups in some other events while placing second at the Atlantic Co-Ed Track Invitational on Friday.

The Rams finished with 86 points. Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln and Harlan tied for first at the meet with 108 points.

“We purposely went into this meet trying to get our athletes a good workout while resting a a few others,” said Glenwood coach Mark Starner. “Our goal wasn't to necessarily win the meet, but to compete and be in the top three at the end of the meet.

“We did a lot of things well on the evening, while other events may seem like we didn't run well, but as said earlier, we used the meet as a workout for some athletes, so we weren't as worried about times as we were competing and finishing races.”

The Rams' rested top long distance runner Johnny Fuller and middle distance runner Eliot Lincoln and Kyle Wheeler after all three ran in the 4x800-meter relays.

“We purposely were backing off them for this meet to simply get them off the track,” said Starner.

The 4x800-meter relay team still managed a season-best and meet-best best 8:14.72.

Mark Abrams picked up for Fuller in the 3,200-meters (second place), the 1,600-meters (first) and the 800-meters (third place).

“He ran extremely well, especially in the wind,” said Starner of Abrams. “Had there not been any wind, Mark would have had three personal best on all three events. He is starting to run with confidence and is also heating things up on the track.”

The Glenwood Girls track team placed third at Atlantic with 69 points. Harlan was the meet champion with 158 points and Atlantic was the runner up with 110.

The Rams' Shelby Brewster fought off the flu to battle Harlan's Dena Baughman of Harlan into the finals of the high jump. Baughman won the gold but Brester set a personal best of five-feet to finish second.

Rachelle Martin continued her consistency in the discus finishing in fourth place after a battle with Kylie Perkins of Shenandoah and Morgan Darrington of Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln. Martin 's best throw was 103 feet, seven inches

Abby Brown set a personal best in the long jump with a top leap of 15’ 5” and finished in fifth place.

Shaniece Nott, also battling illness, put up good performances in the 100-meter dash (2nd place) and a 3rd place in the 200-meter dash.

The Rams' 4x100-meter relay team of Shaniece Nott, Kassie Finn, McKenna Henze, and Brewster ran their fastest time of the year.

Ram's Win Relays

The Glenwood boys track team completed the sweep of all three home track meets this season with the team title at the Co-Ed Ram Relays last Tuesday.

Glenwood has previously won its Ram Relays and Ram 9-10 Relays.

“This also marks the third straight year of this feat,” said Glenwood coach Mark Starner. There were several outstanding performances on the day.”

The Rams' 4x800-meter, shuttle hurdle, 4x200-meter, 4x100, 4x400 relay teams all set season-bests. Mark Abrams (3,200-meter run), Kyle Wheeler (400-meter run), Michael Lawler (400-meter hurdles), Eliot Lincoln (800-meter run), Taylor Williams (200-meter dash) and Jared Peterson (200-meter dash) all set personal bests.

“Some of our goals this year were to win every home meet; especially this one,” said Starner. “This meet gives our seniors a boost competing on our home track for the last time and ending up on top of the field. That's important for us. Its a good send off for them and we were fortunate enough to attain that goal for them.

“Things are starting to come together as the season is winding down. We've got some areas to work on within the next couple of weeks before we compete in the Conference and District Track meets.”

Atlantic was the girls' meet champion with 132 ahead of Council Bluffs Abraham Lincoln's 121 points.

Glenwood finished with 113.5 points for third place.

The Rams' Abby Brown placed second in the long jump with a top leap of 15' 1/2”.
