Flaws sprinting royalty, Lynx 2th at NCC

May 7, 2013
The Daily Freeman Journal

EAGLE GROVE - She's just a freshman, but she's now officially the face of the Webster City girls' track team.

Have fun dealing with her for the next three years, North Central Conference.

Rookie sprinting star Allie Flaws continued her unbeaten season individually last night and in doing so helped the Lynx vault all the way up to second in the team standings at the conference meet.

Flaws won the 100- and 200- meter dashes and helped add points in two more relays. WCHS piled up 106 points and nipped Humboldt (106) by the slimmest of margins with a sixth-place finish in the 4x400 relay at the conclusion of the meet.

"We're kind of thrilled right now," WCHS co-head coach Kristy Manson said afterwards. "We thought we had a shot at the top three ... we had some things that went better than we thought and we had some other things that didn't go as well as planned, but this is just a fun group of girls to work with."

Flaws blazed to wins in 12.71 and 26.49 seconds in the 100 and 200. Teammate Kisston Thomas finished third in the 100 (13.16) and fourth in the 200 (27.33).

"Kaylee taking second in three events was huge," Manson said.

Schnathorst also led-off the Lynx third-place shuttle hurdle relay (1:12.63). Chelsey Wagoner, Kenzie Garvey and Hannah Myers followed on the final three legs.

Defending Class 3A state long jump runner-up Carrie Gerdes wasn't on her game, but a leap of 14-9 still earned her second place.
