River Kings light up the Day


Marcucci said earlier this week that she would like to lower her time to 1:05 by the end of the season, but her time Thursday wasn’t her season best.

The sophomore’s fastest time is 1:07.58 on April 11, and on Thursday, Marcucci ran a 1:07.85, and it was the best time.

But does it fit the Drake Relays cut-off?

In the 400 meter hurdles, the top eight runners get to run on the blue oval. Marcucci (as of Thursday night) was ranked 11th in the state and still second in Class 2A. Marcucci has a top-32 time in the 100 hurdles, so she will run in that race in Des Moines. Marcucci also won the 100 hurdles with a time of 15.73 seconds.

Meanwhile, Tierra Hildebrandt had the fastest time — 13.13 seconds — in the 100 dash. She won the dash in a full tenth of a second ahead of Monticello’s Rachel Gadient.

Northeast also had the fastest sprint medley relay at 4:32.59 while Camanche finished sixth (4:57.19).

The Rebels had two in the top eight during the 3,000 meter run. Junior Mariah Casey finished fourth at 11:48.55, while freshman Maddie Kaczinski came in at 11:59.06.

For the Indians, senior Libby Schnoor won two events. First, she won the high jump with a leap of 5-feet even ahead of Davis County’s Jaylynn Sharp by 1 inch. Then, Schnoor had the fastest 800 run at 2:30, 1 second faster than Hannah Kilburg of Northeast. Camanche’s Syrene Ball finished seventh with a time of 2:42.50.

Panthers win title

EDGINGTON, Ill. -- Erie/Prophetstown led the seven-team field at the Rockridge Lady Invitational, winning the team title by a wide margin with 183 points. Monmouth-Roseville was a distant second with 97.

Erie/Prophetstown swept the relays, winning the 400 in 52.05, the 800 in 1:51.31, the 1,600 in 4:23.44 and the 3,200 in 10:27.19.

Sisters Courtney and Rachel Cobert also combined for three wins in individual events.
