LESS THAN A BLINK AWAY

EARLHAM — A blink of an eye usually takes one-third on a second, or .33 — not exactly a long amount of time. Now try this on for size — the South Hamilton girls’ 4x100-meter relay enters today’s final day of qualifying for the Drake Relays sitting on the outside by just eight ...

Hawks battle the elements to finish 5th at Earlham

3RD TIME THE CHARM

LYNX GOOD, ’CATS BETTER AT CHARLIE BUNN RELAYS

HUMBOLDT — Chad Hisler looks at his Webster City boys’ track and field team and likes what he sees. The Lynx have depth in the field events. They’re loaded with sprinters and have plenty of distance talent as well. But he’s also a realist. As good as his team is — and it’s dang ...
