Indians take 2nd


Turner also was pleased by tossing a personal record in the shot put (32-4). She is hoping for a big senior season with her father, Chris, in his first season as an assistant coach.

“It’s extra special because my dad is now our assistant and my throws coach,” she said shortly after he presented Kiana and the other five seniors on the team with flowers during a Senior Night ceremony. “He got to see me throw outdoors for the first time.”

It was a special night for Chris Turner, too.

“I got a little emotional,” he admitted. “I started with all six of the seniors in pee-wee basketball. It’s hard to see them graduate, and she’s my youngest.”

Sowle also won the 400-meter hurdles, using a late burst to pass Maquoketa’s Aubree Taylor and Western Dubuque’s Sara Davis.

“I didn’t think it would be that tough, but I started falling behind about halfway through,” Sowle said. “It was Senior Night and I couldn’t let myself down, so I had to push through. I know if I’m even or a little bit behind, my legs are long so I have a good stride at the end.”

Sowle also ran the third leg as Camanche finished the night by winning the 1,600 relay. Unfortunately for the Indians, Western Dubuque finished right behind them to sew up the team title.

Central DeWitt finished third in the team standings, although it had no champions.

Northeast took fourth despite bringing just six runners, and the Rebels won five events.

“I thought we did real well for bringing just six runners,” Northeast coach Pat Healy said. “I think we won every one (we entered) but the hurdles, and we false-started there. We didn’t bring our distance runners because we have a meet (today) and we didn’t want them to go back-to-back.”
