Today is Day 6 of the 6-Day Cycle






  • The HS boys track team traveled to the University of Dubuque on Friday night for the Tri-Rivers Conference indoor track meet. Team scores were not kept on the night. We did have some very good performances for the first meet of the season. Noah Valenzuela was the only champion we had in the 1600m run with a time of 4:56.75, a little over a second faster than the Lisbon runner in second place. Hunter Bowers placed 8th in the 200m dash with a time of 24.97. The 4x200m relay team of Jordon Massow, Chase Fults, Gavin Reck, and Hunter Bowers also placed 8th. The 4x800m relay of Talan Walker, Westin Moses, Sawyer Bowers, and Tod Dawes placed 7th. The 1600m medley relay team of Fults, Reck, Hunter Bowers, and Valenzuela placed a close third to North Linn. Cody Fox placed 6th in the shot put with a new personal best throw of 40’7″. Every healthy guy got to participate in at least 2 events and it was nice to run against some other competition. We have another meet this week on Thursday at Cascade. The guys would love to have fans cheering them on. 
  • Thank you to Mrs. Giese and the drama department for allowing StuCo to fundraise for Juvenile Diabetes at the musical this weekend.
