The arrival of spring kickstarts the beginning of track, with the first Plevna high school meet scheduled for April 1. Some of the events that our team will participate in are the 3200 m (2-mile), 1600 m (1-mile), 800 m, 400 m, 300 m hurdles, 200 m, 100 m dash, 100 m hurdles, discus, shot put, long jump, triple jump, and high jump. Let’s just hope the weather decides to cooperate!

The first high school track meet was scheduled for March 30, but was postponed to April 1 due to weather. Dacy Buerkle and Sophia Schumacher were the only students to compete at the Bowman track meet. Dacy placed 12th in 100 m, 17th in the 200 m, 11th in 400 m, and 34th in Discus. Sophia placed 22nd in the 200 m, 10th in 400 m, 23rd in Discus, and 28th in Shotput. Way to go girls, we can’t wait to see you improve over the season!
