Seier Quad final district tuneup for Cardinals

Thursday, there will be no tomorrow – unless an athlete is able to perform well enough to qualify for the 2015 Nebraska State Track & Field Championships.
Joe Brugger exhorts Zac Glidden to finish of 4x100 relayIt’s time for teams and athletes across the state to vie in all-important district competition, with the Boone Central/Newman Grove Cardinals ready for the challenge of the B4 District at Pierce.
The Cardinals had their final prep this past week, hosting B4 rival Scotus and two additional teams for the annual Jerry Seier Memorial Quad in Albion.

BC/NG and Scotus will both be strong contenders for B4 hardware and Tuesday’s meet gave the teams a chance to get a feel for each other while athletes honed their skills in individual events.
Although the visiting Shamrocks won the girls and boys divisions, Cardinal Coach Kris Pestel was pleased with the work put in by her charges.
“We had a pretty good day. We had athletes break one school record and tie another,” Pestel said. “Catherine Weeder broke the 800 meter record, running a 2:26.39, and Jared Zwiener tied the school mark of 13’ in the pole vault, also held by Joe and Matt Brugger.
“Our girls and boys teams have both done an amazing job this season. We have one week before district and every practice is vital to preparing us for an extremely competitive meet.
“We are looking forward to the competition and the challenge!”
