Gerdes, Schnathorst gold medalists for Lynx at Cadet Relays

WCHS again scores well in field events, places 3rd

The Daily Freeman Journal

IOWA FALLS - The Webster City girls' track team continued to feast on the field events and then look for points where it could on the track during last night's Cadet Relays.

Six of the Lynx 15 top-three results occurred before the meet went to the track, and the high jump, long jump, shot put and discus provided a hefty portion of their 137 points en route to a third-place finish in the field of four North Central Conference teams.

"The field events were once again our strength," WCHS co-head coach Kristy Manson said.

Iowa Falls-Alden won its own meet with 157 points. Eagle Grove was second with 139, and Fort Dodge St. Edmond sat in the back with 131.

Sophomore Kaylee Schnathorst picked up her first gold medal of the season with a winning throw of 104 feet, 2 inches in the discus. She was also second in the shot put (34-4).

Freshman Carrie Gerdes provided the only other first-place result; she continued to have a strong season in the long jump with a meet-best leap of 15-4.
