On April 11, the Adel-DeSoto-Minburn girls’ track team competed at Ballard High School in Nevada. The sprint medley relay team consisting of Madi Bertman, Haley Schepers, Kari Dufoe and Torrie Hook set a new school record and took first in the event.
The Tigers also got first in the 4x100 meter relay. Sydney Bertman took first in the 200 meter dash.
The 4x800 meter relay team of Erin Person, Jenny Wicks, Haley Canney and Emma Riker took second place while the 4x200 meter relay team of Olivia Anderson, Mallory Pierce, Haley Canney and Piper Freestone also got second. The 4x400 meter relay team also got second place.
The Tigers got back outside and competed at the Waukee Girls’ Relays at Waukee Stadium on April 10. The Tigers finished third overall with a team score of 73 points.
A-D-M’s Kari Dufoe had what coach Bart Mueller called an "epic night," and it started with the 100 meter dash. She got first place in that event, finishing the race in 12.40 seconds. 12.40 seconds is a new school record for the Tigers and currently the third-best time in the state.
Dufoe also won the 200 meter dash, again breaking a school record with a time of 25.99 seconds, which is second-best in the state.
Brianna Mueller won the 800 meter run with a time of 2:20.63. The 4x200 meter relay team for the Tigers got second place.
Torrie Hook, Mueller, Regan Engleman and Dufoe helped the Tigers get first place in the 4x400 meter relay with a time of 4:01.77.
Both Sydney and Madi Bertman jumped over 16 feet in the long jump competition. Sydney got third in the event with a jump of 16-05.75 while Madi got fifth with a jump of 16-02.
Based on Thursday night’s results, Bart Mueller thinks that four relays seem poised to qualify for the Drake Relays.
