Area Girls Compete in Pella Tulip Time Relays

The Oskaloosa Girls’ Track and Field team was in action at the Pella Tulip Time Relays last night and had a solid outing, setting six personal bests. Taylor Richardson got the only win for the Indians, however. She finished first in the long jump with a distance of 16-5.5. There are no team scores, as they are under question for the time being. Osky’s girls’ team will be back in action on Monday at the Little Hawkeye Conference Championships.

The Eddyville-Blakesburg-Fremont Girls’ Track and Field team was in action in Pella as well, and they grabbed a couple of wins in their division. The shuttle hurdle relay team of Sadie Baugher, Torie Alexander, Briana Ver Steegh, and Karlie Taylor got the win with a time of 1:10.20. Karlie Taylor grabbed the win in the 100 meter hurdles in a time of 15.38 seconds. It was another great outing for the long jumpers, as Emma Bunnell got the win at 15-9.5 and teammate Sadie Baugher got second right behind her at 15-9. EBF will be in action for the South Central Conference Championships next Thursday.

In that same division, Pella Christian was in action in girls’ track and field. Although there were no wins, there were several high finishes.
