While the weather so far this spring hasn’t been all that conducive for track, the Watford City track teams opened their 2013 season with first place finishes at the Northwest Conference Indoor Track Meet last Thursday in Minot.
In the girls division, the Wolves garnered 157 points to win the meet, while Surrey came in second with 89 points and Parshall took third with 45 points. The Watford City boys team rolled up 113 points to take first place, while Stanley-Powers Lake took second with 92 points. Other teams placing in the boys division were: 3. New Town, 86; 4. DesLacs/Burlington-Lewis & Clark, 64; 5. Williams County, 40; 6. Parshall, 32; 7. Garrison-Max, 23; 8. Surrey, 21; 9. Bishop Ryan, 12; 10. Glenburn, 8; 11. Trenton-Trinity Christian, 7; 12. Mohall-Landsford-Sherwood, 0; 13. White Shield, 0.
“I was very impressed with how the girls competed on Thursday,” stated Greg Brown, girls’ head coach. “We took many athletes because they have been working extremely hard in practice. There are not enough adjectives to explain how happy I was on Thursday. Our team is working extremely hard in practice day in and day out and came prepared to compete. The idea is to now continue to build on that success and see what happens.”
Placing in first place for the Watford City girls team was Lea Arndt in the 400 meter dash, Asha Smith in the 1,600 and 3,200 meter runs, and McKayla Haugeberg in the high jump and pole vault. In the boys division, placing in first was Brandon Stoker in the long jump and the boys 3,200 meter relay team of Dustin Kleppen, Bradly Wilson, Guy Ross and Dillon Smith.
“We had a good start to our season with the boys that had enough practices to go,” stated David Gumke, boys head coach. “We saw some exciting things from our young kids as well as some good leadership from the upperclassman.”
Gumke was also impressed with how well the girls and boys pole vaulters did at their first outing of the season considering they haven’t been able to practice in the outdoor pit.
