Lady Tigers Fifth At A Club Relays
The weather was more fit for ice fishing than a track meet but the Scotland County Lady Tigers braved the below freezing temperatures April 2 to compete in the A Club Relays in Bloomfield, IA. SCR-I finished fifth in the six-team event.
It was simply cold miserable conditions," said Coach Josh Smith. "We still showed promise despite the weather. We need to work on our handoffs for relays but it's still early in the season."
Sara Norton topped the individual performance list with a first place finish in the shot put with a throw of 28 feet 10.5 inches. That was seven inches further than the third place throw by teammate Amy Morgan. The duo flip-flopped in the standings in the discus where Morgan was third with a throw of 82 feet 1.5 inches while Norton finished fifth at 76 feet nine inches.
The best performance on the track came from Amy Blomme who was second in the 400-meter low hurdles in a time of 1:21.734. The junior was also a member of three of the Tigers' top finishing relay teams.
