DHS' Weber Wins Triple Jump At Doane, Other Longhorns Place
The Friend Sentinel reports that the Dorchester track team had some highlight reel moments at the Doane Invitational held recently in Crete, and that coaches were happy with the marks the athletes turned in.
“We put up some marks and times that are a good starting point where our goal will be to continually improve upon them,” Dorchester Coach Ryan Voelker said. “There is always room for growth, and it will start for us in being in solid physical condition.”
Jacee Weber led the way for the Longhorns, winning the triple jump with a leap of 33-3.75. Lydia Kahle finished third in the discus with a throw of 84-8, and the 4x400- and 4x800-meter relays were both sixth.
The Longhorn boys’ teams is down in numbers, the story points out, and that meant fewer team points.
Riley Zahourek and Corey Bird each placed in two events for the Longhorns. Zahourek was second in the triple jump at 39-6.25 and third in the long jump at 20-3.5. Bird finished fifth in both the long jump and high jump.
Today, April 1, DHS was in the field for the Turkey Creek Relays held at Friend High.
