By Andrew Schnebel ~ The Sioux City relays took place over the weekend at Elwood Olsen Stadium. It was a two-day event that brought hundreds of schools from all over, with kids in elementary school all the way up to the college level competing.
Both the Morningside’s men’s and women’s track and field team competed. The second day was cut short due to inclement weather. Nine collegiate events got cancelled Saturday afternoon, but it was still a great weekend with many records broken.
Sophomore middle-distance runner Cecily Waddell said, “It was a great experience to run with higher level athletes and to see high school athletes compete with us. 19 people on the team set personal records so it was successful for the Mustangs.”
Morningside Sophomore Megan Glisar broke the meet record and her personal record by jumping 5 feet, 10 ¾ inches. Other results included freshman Neeia Cooperwood, who had two finishes in the top three, in both the high jump and 100 meter. Also senior Jessica Weborg, had a third place finish in the women’s 1500-meters.
The Mustangs next meet will be this upcoming weekend when they travel to Orange City for the Northwestern Invitational.
