The JH Girls team had the most successful year of any team in the last 15 years with two first-place finishes and one second-place finish. They continually hit PR's throughout the season and grew as a unit as they did. During our Second to last meet, the girls managed to score 180 points all together which was the highest point total from any team or meet we saw the entire year! The girls should be very proud of themselves and excited for continued success in the years to come.
During the Jr. High track season Kael Hamann ran mostly 800s and 1600s. He set out on a chase to take down a 21-year-old record of 5:09.28 in the mile run. It took him 3 tries to get to a 5:09.40 which just barely missed it. After that performance, he never looked back. He went on to run a 5:02 and then ran his best race with a 5:01.82 at the conference meet! Congratulations Kael on a successful 8th-grade season!!
Congratulations to Will Forbes who had a season-best of 6'2" in the high jump last night and earned a spot to compete at the 2A State Track & Field Meet.
Congratulations to Camric Hamann, MVAOCOU Senior who has earned Iowa All State Honors for Quiz Bowl for the third consecutive year. Camric was the highest point-scorer in the state and was an integral part of our Quiz Bowl team. Way to go, Camric!
