“I knew we were up against a tough field so I just told myself to stay locked onto the girls beside me and I'd give the rest of my team a good chance going forward,” stated Mikota.
“I knew I had a lot of girls on my tail so I knew I had to at least keep my pace steady but I also knew I didn't want to let anyone down so I dug deep and sped up there at the end,” finished Sterbenz.Sara Frett - qualified for the finals in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 15.56 seconds. Frett resided in arguably one of the fastest heats that included Grace Martensen of Benton Community who had the fastest qualifying time of Class 3A heading into the state meet. Frett talked about running with such an experienced field.
“I knew I was running up against one of the fastest if not the fastest girl in 3A which was kind of nerve racking but I knew that if I just kept pace with her that I would be fin,” stated Frett. “The rain was a little scary, thought I would slip multiple times but in the end, it wasn't too bad. I thought I had a strong finish and I'm proud of my performance.”Boys 4x200 meter relay: Grimes, Todd, Liebe, Collins - finished 16th with a time of 1:33.14
