Indians lead area teams at Duncan meet


"Third is not bad with the big schools," Schnoor said. "I'm feeling a lot better for districts now. It really helps having new competition we don't see."

Northeast claimed fourth place with 72 points, and coach Pat Healy saw some good signs.

"Our relays are looking good today," he said. "We're getting nice times; that was our second best in the four-by-2(00)."

The Rebels won the 800 relay in 1:50.53. Tierra Hildebrandt flew past several runners and to the front with her third-leg split of 27.3 seconds, then Danae Diedrich widened the margin over runner-up Camanche with a 26.57 split on the anchor leg.

"We can make up a lot of ground right there," Healy said. "Throw in (freshman Aleenah) Marcucci, and we're real good."

Clinton placed sixth with 58 points, but coach June Wilden gave the performance mixed reviews.

"It was a Monday, and I thought the kids really looked sluggish," she said. "We have to step off the bus ready to go.

"The freshmen are starting to figure it, but they will have to be faster in the next couple of weeks."

The River Queens picked up one victory. McKenzie Petersen, Shelby Weets, Erin Wenzel and Elle Tubbs won the 3,200 relay in 10:20.90, their fastest time of the season.

"We're coming together, we've just got to know our places and where everybody is going to run," Wenzel said of the River Queens' performance. "We dropped about five seconds in the four-by-4(00) but have to make bigger strides."

Central DeWitt, the host school, finished seventh with 50 points.

Sarah Schoel won the long jump for the Sabers at 15-7, and the foursome of Emily Hawkins, Cori Peterzalek, Gretchen Henningsen and Barr won the 400-meter shuttle hurdle relay with a season's-best effort of 1:10.02, a top-six time in Class 3A this spring.
