The North Tama Girls Track team were able to compete against schools similar in size as they traveled to Montezuma for the Lew Lundy Relays on Tuesday, April 17.

"My expectations were the girls would come in and do the best they could to run some of their best times," coach Katy Johnson said. "This should be our sixth meet of the season, but it will only be our second. Just to go and run is enough."

In the short distance relays, Takoa Kopriva kicked off scoring for the Lady Redhawks placing sixth in the 100 M Dash, followed by fellow sophomore Katelyn Kucera placing sixth in the 200 M Dash and Carrissa Calderwood not far behind Kucera in 14th. Calderwood would also place eighth in the 400 M Dash.

"They were far more prepared tonight than they were at Dike the week before," Johnson said. "They went out, prepped early and worked as a good team."

Kopriva's highlight of the evening came in high jump as she posted a jump of four foot six, good enough for third in the competition. Abbey DeBoef also placed sixth in the event. Other field events saw Sable Fehr place fifth in discus and Carlie Gorder place seventh in the long jump.

"Tokoa did good in high jump after her first jump of the season," Johnson said. "Katelyn Kucera is running some good sprint times. Molly Kvidera ran her fastest 800 and doing really well."

In the relays, the 4x200 took fifth with 2:12, 4x400 placing sixth with 5:02 and 4x800 placing in sixth with 11:40.

"We really need to work on our handoffs and making sure those are smoother," Johnson said. "We also need smoother starts."
