Starting with the ADM girls, Coach Bart Mueller had his team qualify an incredible 12 events for the state track meet next week in Des Moines. For how poor the conditions were yesterday, Coach Mueller says he’s more than pleased with how the Tigers performed, coming in second as a team behind DC-G.
As expected, Kari Dufoe qualified in both the 100 and 200 meter races, and she also helped a couple of relay teams qualify for state. Another highlight individually came from Brennan Hook, who made up a ton of ground in the final lap of her 3,000-meter race to qualify in second. It’ll be her second straight trip to Des Moines.
Coach Mike Whisner’s ADM boys qualified five events for state last night, four of them being individual qualifiers and one event being a relay.
Tate Jensen won the 110-meter hurdles and got second in the 400 hurdles. Jesse Bennett then qualified in second in the shot put with a throw of 48’10.25”. Kyle Hovey also qualified in second in his signature 1,600-meter event.
Coach Whisner says his boys ran their best overall meet of the year in what was their final competition of the year together. The Tigers came in third in the district, scoring 96 points.
