Freeman Girls Win C-2 District Runner-Up Track Title

Freeman Qualifies Five Athletes In Five Events

The Freeman girls had an outstanding day at the C-2 District Track Meet that was held at Auburn High School.   Every girl competed hard and several girls crushed their own personal records in their events.  Each one of them rose to the challenge and did what was asked of them on their way to the District Runner-Up Title.  Lincoln Christian won the meet with 109 points and was followed by Freeman with 90 points.  Nebraska City Lourdes Central rounded out the top three with 69 points.

Morgan Lenners qualified for the State Meet in three events:  the 800 meter run, the 1600 meter run, and she was a member of our 1600 meter relay team that qualified.  Kylie Trobee’s throw of 37’ 11” in the shot put met the automatic qualifying mark for the State Track Meet and won her first place in the District.  Kylie is also a member of the qualifying 1600 meter relay team.  Marissa Haynes qualified for State in the 200 meter run by finishing second in that event and she is also a member of the 1600 meter relay team.  Other members of the 1600 meter relay team that will be going to the state meet are Taylor Sugden and Mackenzie Ruskamp.  The girls in the 1600 meter relay knew they were running against the defending State Champions, Lincoln Christian, and they would have to qualify for the State Meet on time.  Coach Renken told them they had to run a 4:20 and the girls responded with a 4:19.2.  This broke the previous school record they set this year at 4:23.5. 

We had a few athletes that were extremely close to qualifying for the State Meet.  The girls’ 3200 meter relay team took 15 seconds off their previous best time, but fell short to Johnson-Brock by 6.1 seconds.  Mackenzie Ruskamp finished third in the 300 hurdles and ran a personal best time.  They take the two best third places from across the eleven districts and Mackenzie missed it by half a second.  Marissa Haynes also had a third place finish and a personal record in the 100 meter dash, but her time did not qualify her for the State Meet. 

Savannah Banks and Mallory Dorn ended their athletic career at Freeman yesterday at the District Track Meet.  “Both girls are extremely hard workers and they should be proud of their accomplishments.  They were tremendous leaders for our track team and they will be missed next year!”
