Indians take 2nd

CAMANCHE — Camanche and Northeast expect to battle all season at the top of the Big East Conference in girls track and field, the Indians led by their strength in the field events, the Rebels by their prowess on the track.

The Indians won two of the four field events Thursday and took second in three of them, but they might have been helped had Northeast had its full complement of runners.

Instead, Western Dubuque came from behind in the final three events to deny Camanche the title of its own Indian Relays. The meet originally was scheduled for Tuesday but was postponed by cold weather. The change forced three teams to drop out, and because it also has a meet today, Northeast sent only six sprinters to compete Thursday, leaving behind a talented group of distance runners that finished second at the state cross country meet last fall and might have cut into Western Dubuque’s point total.

Western Dubuque grabbed the lead when it finished first and third in the 1,500 meters, with Dakota Tell winning in 5 minutes, 25.19 seconds. Those 16 points put the Bobcats in the lead 123.5-112, and they wound up beating the Indians 139.5-128 for the team title.

But, Camanche coach Brenda Metzger had no complaints.

“It was a good night,” she said.

Helped by its success in the field events, Camanche led most of the night. The Indians got first-place finishes from Courtney Sowle in the high jump (4 feet, 10 inches) and Kiana Turner in the discus (100-11).

“My goal was to get better than my first time out last year, and I accomplished that,” Turner said.

The Indians also got runner-up finishes from Sydney Grell in the long jump and Lindsey Short in the shot put and discus.

“It’s nice to get 46 points in the field events,” Metzger said.
