Webster City girls in action on the track

EAGLE GROVE — The Webster City girls placed fourth here Thursday night at the Lady Eagle Relays hosted by Eagle Grove.

Algona was crowned overall team champions followed by St. Edmond and Pocahontas Area. The Lynx had 60.5 points, just a half-point back of the Indians for third.

A pair of relays earned silver medals for Webster City, as the 4×100 finished second in 53.95 and the sprint medley in 1:59.75.

Running the 4×100 were Cloe Savitski, Olivia Gallentine, Ellie Weinschenk and Adeline Tesdahl. The sprint medley consisted of Tristyn Wright, Gallentine, Savitski and Izzy Grossoehme.

“We did some awesome things,” WCHS head coach Tyler Mosbach said. “First and foremost, I was very proud of the girls who overcame a little adversity and doubt to help their team and themselves get better.

“There were also a fair amount of personal records throughout the night. To have that many being set at this point of the year shows that if we continue to work and compete, good things will be coming.”

Tesdahl was third in the high jump, as Adysen Poppen added a bronze in the shot put. Both the 4×200 and shuttle hurdle relays also placed third.

Grossoehme was fourth in both the 800 and 1,500, while Savitski (100), Wright (200) and Jakaela Cherry (shot put) all finished fourth.

Kaitlyn Winkler added a sixth in the long jump, as did Weinschenk in the high jump.

“We definitely have some things that we need to work on, myself included, but for the most part, we competed hard as a team,” Mosbach said. “With the teams that were there, I think that is something that can be celebrated as we continue to work to get better.”

Webster City heads to Algona on Tuesday.
