Glenwood wins Red Oak Relays

Lauren Hughes helped Glenwood to a gold medal in the 4x800-meter relay at Thursday’s Red Oak Relays.

Glenwood placed first or second in all but three events and edged Clarinda by a single point to win the team title at the Red Oak Relays Thursday.

The Rams won the “AA” (large school) portion of the meet with 202 points, narrowly surpassing Clarinda’s 201 points. Stanton won the “A” (small school) port with 132 points.

Glenwood coach Jordan Bueltel said the weather was perfect and his team had a full line up in Red Oak - and they didn’t waste either.

“We were able to try a few different things with our line up and really ended up with great performances all around,” Bueltel said. “We gave some different girls a chance to run in the 4x8 and three of the four set career best splits.”

Glenwood’s Zoie Carda in the (100-meters), Allison Koontz (200-meters), Brooklyn Schultz (400-meters), Kelsi Duran (high jump) and Abi Hiller (discus) each notched top finishes.

Schultz set a new personal (1:00.74) and moved into sixth in program history while winning the 400.  

In the 800-meters, Breckyn Petersen (second place) and Madelyn Berglund (third place) both sets personal records and notched the fourth and sixth fastest times, respectively, in school history.

“They had Mayson (Hartley) from Clarinda, who is an amazing runner, in there with them to really push the pace and bring out the best in them.  I think they really surprised themselves at how fast they could run that race.

The Rams added relays wins in the distance medley (4:34.46), the 4x800-meter (11:12.67) and 4x400-meter (4:20.58) relays.

“Again another very encouraging night, but we are excited to get a little break from meets for a week and actually get a few practices in which we can work on some things and keep improving,” Bueltel said.
