Charger Girl and Boy Thinclads Place Fourth at Van Meter
On the coolest evening of the young track season the ACGC girls' and boys' track teams both place fourth in the Van Meter Invitational last night. The Charger girls scored 86.5 points to finish behind Winterset, Van Meter, and ADM, while the boys came up with 114 points in a very competitive field to also finish behind the same three schools. The points spread between first and fourth place in the boys' meet was just 14 points.
Cael Hoing had a good day in the weight events, as he took first in the discus and second in the shot put. His discus throw of 132'4" and his put of 43'1.5" were both season bests. Charlie Crawford picked up the other Charger gold in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:08.6.
On the girls' side Chloe Largent continued her winning ways in the high jump with a leap of 5'2". The only other first place for the girls was by the 1600 medley relay team consisting of Anaston Benson, Sophie Dorsey, EmmaKay McClain, and Jorja Hoover. The foursome ran the event in 4:50.10.
