On Thursday, May 23rd, several North Crawford Track and Field athletes traveled to Bangor to compete in the WIAA Division 3 Track and Field Sectional, with a trip to the State Meet on the line. There were many strong individual and team finishes, including a 6th place finish by Helen Carstens in the 1600m run, 8th place finish by Kloee Chamberlain in the 300m hurdles, 9th place finish by Rachel Peterson in the High Jump, 8th place finish by Elena Esparza in the Shot Put, and a 6th place finish for Stephen Munson in the Triple Jump.
The highlight of the evening came when Sophomore Helen Carstens finished in 3rd place in the 3200m run. Helen's third place finish qualified her for the WIAA State Track and Field Meet. Helen will compete in the State Meet at UW-La Crosse on Saturday, June 1st. Running events begin at 10:00 a.m., but there is no precise time as to when Helen's race will be run.
Congratulations to Helen and all of the North Crawford Track and Field athletes on an excellent spring season. We look forward to continued great things happening with the North Crawford Track Program.
