Girls track brings home a fourth place

This article submitted by Nicole Orbeck on 05/06/97.

The Paynesville girl's track team competed on April 29 in Minnewaska. The nine-team meet turned up a fourth place finish for the girls.

Cold and windy weather conditions slowed the girl's times a little, but the team combatted the cold and had an overall good meet.

Second through fourth place team scores couldn't have gotten much closer, being less than four points away from each other.

The May 2 meet in Litchfield was postponed due to weather. The make-up date is not yet available.

Monday the girls host a meet, scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday they will travel to Benson, and Friday is True Team Sections at Rocori.

Last year the team placed sixth at True Team State. This year Paynesville was moved into a section with much bigger teams, so there is a greater challenge on hand for the team.
