Another Hawkeye 10 Track and Field Championship For Glenwood Girls

Glenwood high jumper Keisi Duran finished in third place at Thursday’s Hawkeye 10 Conference Meet.

Destiny Yale was a member of the Rams’ 400-meter shuttle hurdle team that captured fourth place at the conference meet. She's shown competing at a meet earlier this year in Glenwood.

The Glenwood girls track and field team held off runner-up Atlantic by six points to win Thursday’s Hawkeye 10 Conference meet in Red Oak. Glenwood won three events and tallied 133 team points. The Rams have won four consecutive conference meet titles and eight out of the last nine. No conference meet was held in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Rams won a pair of relay championships. The 4x100-meter team of Zoie Carda, Jaylynn Floyd, Danika Arnold and Alli Koontz breezed to a winning time of 50.44, while the 4x800-meter foursome of Lauren Hughes, Neyla Nanfito, Haylee Hughes and Breckyn Petersen dominated the field with a winning time of 10:12.67.

Arnold provided the Rams with an individual championship in the 200-meter dash, crossing the finish line first in 26.88. Koontz finished fourth in the race with a clocking of 27.71.

“That meet really ended up closer than maybe we would have liked, but the girls really competed all the way through and we were able to come away with the conference win,” Glenwood Coach Jordan Bueltel said. “Atlantic really ran a great meet and really made it interesting. Danika Arnold really had a nice night and helped us out teamwise when she won the 200 and really pulled away from the rest on the third leg of the 4x1.”

The Rams had a pair of second place finishes. Carlie Clemmer was the runner-up in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 16.37 and the 4x200-meter relay team of Carda, Courtney Crawford, Elaina Dougherty and Ella Richards finished a strong second with the time 1:52.69.
