  • And last but not least, the 4x400 team of Margaret Tobias, Kate Timboe, Janey Meilander and Kelsey Schweizer finished 2nd and set a new school record in the process.

From the beginning, the season has been one of ups and downs -- through Coach Weier’s continuing recovery, the weather and multiple injuries, the team found a way to push through, try new things and trust that their faith would prevail even if the results weren’t necessarily always what they wanted. We continue to pray for Coach Weier’s continued progress and look forward to the challenges and successes next season will surely bring.

BOYS TRACK & FIELD

The team finished 8th at the State Meet! Congrats to all of the athletes on a very successful season!

BOYS TENNIS

The boys tennis team season came to a close last Friday, with a loss to Ames in Substate competition. Jack Drey and Evan Schultheis won their #2 and #4 singles matches. Daniel Lu lost a competitive match 6-4, 6-3 to last year's State Champion Tim Ellis. Michael Frazier, Ben Kinkor, and Logan Cox also lost tight matches. Trailing 2-4 going into doubles, the team needed to win all 3 doubles. Although they were leading at #2 and #3 doubles, they lost at #1 doubles, ending the season. The boys played well this year under the direction of their new coach Kirk Trow and assistant coach Spencer Cox, finishing with an 8-3 record in dual meets, a 2nd place finish in both the Ankeny Invitational and in Districts, and a win in preliminary Substate. They will be graduating just one senior from the Varsity team, so should be strong again next year. Good luck to Jack Drey, Michael Frazier, and Daniel Lu as they compete at individual State this Friday in Cedar Rapids!

GIRLS GOLF

Congratulations to the Girls Golf team for finishing 4th at the Regionals this past Monday.
