Central City won both the girls (86) and boys (97.5) divisions in team scoring. Boone Central was a very close second in girls competition (77) and also took second in the boys division (68).
The Boone Central girls had six winning efforts in the meet, held in extremely windy conditions, with gusts topping 50 mph.
The Cardinal boys had three individual event winners and took one relay victory.
Battling miserable weather conditions and its toughest competition of the season, the Boone Central girls track & field team scored 66 points and placed a solid fifth in the Northwest Invitational at Grand Island Thursday, April 17.
On a cold, rainy day, the Lady Cards had one gold medalist and four runner-up performances to lead their effort. The BC boys placed in each relay, but had just two individual medalists.
“The cold and wet conditions didn’t seem to bother us,” commented Boone Central Coach Kris Pestel. “We stepped up and did very well against some very stiff competition.
“I was proud of how the girls competed.”
