CARDINAL GIRLS – Cardinal Shellamae Farmer won the 300-meter hurdles (54.58) and Kynlie Crowdis won the 800 meters (2:46.16).

Hoisington's girls won the 1,600-meter relay (4:39.06) with Farmer, Mallory Mooney, Reese Merlau and Kelsi Maier. They placed runner-up in the 400-meter relay (53.93) with Farmer, Hahn, Merlau and Mooney

Kylee Hahn earned a pair of runner-up medals in the 110-meter hurdles (16.82) and 300-meter hurdles (55.14).

“Our seniors displayed great leadership, and were the backbone to a great start 2023 track season,” said Hoisington coach Dan Schmidt. “I was proud of our team's performances. We have talent on both the girls and the boys sides. In many cases we were outstanding considering how youthful we are. The conditions for the meet were windy to say the least, but our kids used the wind to their advantage throughout the day.”
