The North Fayette girls managed to get in two track meets last week, running at Mason City on Tuesday, April 8, and at Dyersville Beckman on Friday.

Between the two meets, TigerHawk thinclads won five gold medals, a silver, and eight bronze.

Tuesday’s Mohawk Invitational in Mason City did not have team results available at press time. The TigerHawks competed against teams from Waterloo East, Waverly-Shell Rock, Charles City, and host Mason City.

Emily Creery and Natalie Moyle won two medals apiece. Creery won gold in the shot and discus, while Moyle won the 3000 and earned bronze in the 400 dash.

Regan Wolverton won the 800 with teammate Becca Miller winning silver.

TigerHawk hurdlers did well at the meet. Jade Daughton brought back gold in the 400, Natalie Fettkether took bronze in the 100, and the shuttle of Julie Breuer, Jessica Koch, Daughton, and Fettkether also won bronze.

The 4x800 of Miller, Kim Rounds, Megan Feldman and Wolverton also won a bronze medal.
