ALGONA - All Webster City girls' track team co-head coaches Kristy Manson and Theo Clark are looking for right now is improvement.
Ask and you shall receive.
Fresh off a week break, the Lynx showed significant improvement in their second outdoor meet of the season here last night, as they finished in a three-way tie for second place at the Hannover Relays.
Meet host Algona dominated the field and won easily with 198 points. Webster City, Lake Mills and Bishop Garrigan all finished with 100.
"We worked well as a team, and our field events did really well (last night)," Manson said.
The Lynx notched 31 points in the field events, anchored by runner-up showings by freshman Carrie Gerdes in the long jump (15 feet, 11 inches) and sophomore Kaylee Schnathorst in the discus (93-7).
