ELDORA - The Northeast Hamilton girls' track team found it hard to make inroads in the 10-team United Suppliers Invite here Friday evening, as the Trojets slipped away at the back of the field with eight points.
Iowa Falls-Alden strung up 122 points to win the team title by 11 points over runner-up Grundy Center (111). BCLUW (106), South Hardin (96) and Denver (81) rounded out the top five.
With its six-girl roster, Northeast Hamilton competed in just nine events. Junior Jennifer Jeffers turned in the team's best result in the discus with a toss of 77 feet, 2 inches to place sixth. She later took seventh in the 400-meter dash in 1 minute, 7.88 seconds.
Taylor Olsen, Lydia Winkler, Sierra Thomas and Molly Greenfield teamed up to place seventh in the 4x200 relay (2:11.46). Lillian Chamness took over for Olsen on the eighth-place distance medley relay (5:24.43).
"We knew it was going to be tough in a large meet like this," NEH head coach Brandon Frohwein said. "We can just do what we do and try to improve in each meet."
The Trojets will travel to Britt on Monday to take part in the CWL Panther Relays.
