The Oskaloosa Indians sent a pair of representatives to the 2023 Drake Relays in Des Moines over the weekend. Senior Maleah Walker competed in the Girls Long Jump while senior Tatum Westercamp took part in the Boys 110m Hurdles.
Walker entered as the 7th seed after qualifying with a mark of 17’09” at East Marshall earlier in April. She earned the chalk finish at 7th place in the state with a mark of 17’04” in her final trip to the Relays with Oskaloosa.
Westercamp entered as the 20th seed and outperformed his seed with a 12th place finish after sprinting and leaping his way to a 15.01 second finish, a new personal record.
The Indians will be sending their full teams to Pella on Tuesday (5/2) for the Little Hawkeye Conference meet. The State Qualifying meet will also be at Pella and happens next Thursday (5/11).
