“We had a good showing,” stated NFV head girls’ track coach Mark Nuss after the State Qualifying Meet Thursday in Osage. “It was a really tough meet because there were so many good athletes competing. We placed in most events and recorded a number of season- and personal-bests.”

Weather was also a factor. It was windy but 72 degrees when the field events kicked off. By the end of the meet, it was still windy, but the temperature had fallen over 15 degrees and a light rain had been falling for a while.

Marin Ehler and Ryin Lehmann were the heroines for the TigerHawks by qualifying in two events apiece for the State Track Meet this Thursday through Saturday in Des Moines.

For the third consecutive year, the TigerHawk boys’ golf team advanced out of the Sectional Golf Tourney. NFV finished third and will compete at the District Tournament on Friday at Fox Ridge Golf Course in Dike.

The Sectional Meet last week was moved ahead from Friday to Thursday because of anticipated bad weather.

Host New Hampton (ranked ninth in Class 2A) won the meet with a 327. That meant three teams qualified for District. Denver was second with a 335 and NFV came in with a 354, four strokes better than Sumner-Fredericksburg. 

Colin Gavin was the hottest golfer on the course with a 37-38-75, earning medalist honors for the TigerHawk junior. For the tourney, Gavin was just 3-over, making   par on 12 of the 18 holes; he also birdied No. 6 during the opening round. The Chickasaws’ Ryan Anderson was runner-up with a 76.

The Warrior boys’ track team was in action on two occasions last week, traveling to Osage on Tuesday, April 24, and then competing at the Crestwood Co-Ed Meet on Thursday.
