While those three had a good night, so did DeWitt long jumper Sarah Schoel.
Sabers coach Eric Olson said: “She had five terrific jumps. It was really impressive to see her make five jumps that all were personal bests.”
Schoel’s best jump was 17-5. Schoel also won the 800 and was part of the 1,600 relay team that closed the night with a win.
Hailey Saunders, also from DeWitt, had a second-place jump of 15--5.
Abby Willis won in the discus competition with a 104-7 throw.
“Up and down, I thought we had a good night,” Olson said. “I was really impressed with our performance.”
DeWitt also took care of business on the track. Starting with the 3,200 relay, the quartet of Lauren O’Neill, Mikayla Coyle, Colleen Kinney and Brittney McNamara came across at 11:09. Then, the Sabers’ shuttle hurdle team of Adrian Templeton, Sam Barr, Saunders and Gretchen Henningsen finished a second ahead of Camanche’s team in 1:15.82.
Saunders and Henningsen went 1-2 in the 100 hurdles, while Indians sprinter Lexie Campie finished in third.
“Like one of my girls said tonight, ‘It was a great workout,’ “ Camanche coach Brenda Metzger said. “These girls are very young, and have a lot of learning to do, but we’re going to take it one meet at a time.”
“It was a hard night to get pumped up for with it being cold. It was a good first meet, and we’re going to count it as successful.”
Camanche brings back Schnoor, Jordan Nissen and Bailey Mensinger, a state qualifier in the 800 last year as a freshman.
Meanwhile, Olson expects the Sabers to finish strong and improve from wire-to-wire.
“We’re setting the bar high early, and our girls are buying into the idea that they can do anything they can set their minds to,” he said.
