MS Girls Track wrapped a successful season last night in Atlantic.  In some tough conditions, the ladies ran a great meet and had lots of PRs for the season.  

The 7th grade ended their season as the 2022 Hawkeye Ten Champions, beating 2nd place Lewis Central 130 to 122.  Conference Champions for the Rams were Megan H. in the 400; Katelyn Harms in the 1500; Emersyn H. in discus; the 4x800 relay team of Katelyn H, Grace B, Gabby L., and Megan H; and the 4x400 relay team of Katelyn H., Kati B., Aubrey R., and Megan H.

The 8th grade ended their season as the 2022 Hawkeye Ten Runner Ups, improving on a 4th place performance last year.  Conference Champions for the Rams were the 4x800 team of Averi N., Micah S., Audrina J., and Halee H.

We will wrap our season up with a celebration and equipment checkin on Thursday.  It will last until about 4:15.
