Indians lead area teams at Duncan meet

DEWITT — They finally got a nice day for a track meet, and the Camanche girls continued to look strong with a third-place finish behind a pair of Class 4A schools Monday at the Pam Duncan Invitational at Central DeWitt High School.

"We have strong field events, and our freshmen who have come in have grown the team even more," said Camanche's Libby Schnoor, who won the high jump competition moments after taking second in the 800 meters.

She said the running preliminary helped her in the high jump, where she cleared 4 feet, 10 inches on her first attempt. Central DeWitt's Sam Barr, who took second, and Camanche teammate Courtney Sowle, who was third, each needed all three attempts to clear 4-10, and none of the three cleared 5-0.

"My legs were more warmed up but tired, too," Schnoor said. "I just wanted to get it done."

Both Barr and Sowle also had to squeeze the event in between races.

"It's really rushed," Barr said of the high jump competition. "I feel I can't do really well because I'm really rushed. Consistency is the big thing. To get back in the zone is hard. I feel I can do much better."

Sowle finished her jumps moments after winning the 400-meter hurdles in 1 minute, 7.24 seconds. It was the Indians' lone victory on the track.

"It's such a nice day, I figured maybe this would be the one," she said of her race, which was .24 slower than her best time this season. "I ran the best I could and tried not to stutter. The wind was hard down the homestretch, but that's when you've got to push through."

The Indians finished with 78 points, scoring 30 of them in the field events. Camanche, a Class 2A school, finished behind only Davenport Central (116 points) and Western Dubuque (93) in the 10-team meet.
