The girls track team has already improved their performances since last week. They placed in 14 out of 15 events. There were also more records broken as well.

The meet was hosted by Sauk Rapids and was held at SCSU Halenbeck Hall Field House. Teams competing were: Sauk Rapids, Rice, Mora, Paynesville, Albany, Detroit Lakes, and Royalton. It was their last indoor meet.

The 3200-relay team started the meet off by breaking another school record. Carin Frenchick, Jenny Hess, Erin Aagesen, and Paula Leyendecker are the runners for the relay.

Heidi Jansen ran a great race in the 55-meter dash. ďIt was the biggest surprise of the meetĒ said coach Randgaard. Jansen ran an 8.4 last week and jumped to a 7.93 this week.

Another record was broken by Tiffany Rausch when she ran the 400-meter dash. Actually, she broke her last weekís record of 1:02.50. This week she ran a 1:01.70.

The record for the 800-meter run was also broken. Hess is now the new holder with a time of 2:31.56. The old record was 2:35.

The 1600-meter relay team did another fabulous job by breaking the record with a new time of 4:30.45.

The Paynesville girlís dominated the pole vault by earning a first, a tie for second and a fifth. Camille Flanders received first, Krysta Larson and Joy Hemmesch tied for second and Cindy Lang received a fifth.

ďI was very pleased with our overall team performance, but we do need to make some mental changes. We did break three more school records though,Ē said Randgaard.
