Peabody-Burns High School girls had their best track meet of the year Tuesday at Haven.

“We set nine personal records and the girls continue to improve in all their events,” Coach Brian Lightner said.

Two relay teams took home medals from the meet. The 4x800 runners Brandee Burnett, Karolina Ganko, Carlee Wentworth, and Kenzie Young ran two laps of the track each for a team total time of 13 minutes and 2 seconds. They placed second in the final standings.

The 4x100 team of Ganko, Jenny Kimmeskamp, Wentworth, and Burnett placed third with a time of 1:02.1.

Ganko placed fourth in long jump with a leap of 12 feet, 2.5 inches.

The girls’ team finished fourth out of five teams at the meet.

In boys’ competitive events, Lucas Larsen led the Warriors with two first place finishes. In discus, his winning toss was 132 feet, and in shot put he achieved a personal best record going 40-3.

Seth Topham scored points for the team with a second place in 110 hurdles with a time of 16.6, second in 300 intermediate hurdles at 45.0, and second in high jump clearing the bar at 5-8.

Zach Preheim finished third in 110 hurdles with a time of 17.8, and third in 300 hurdles at 47.8.

Patrick Miller ran the 200-meter dash in 26 seconds to take third place, and Corbin Blank was second in the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.1. The Warrior 4x400 relay team of Michael, Clayton, Kyle, and Corbin placed third with a time of 3:57.1.

“It was a great team meet as the boys scored points in nearly every event,” Lightner said. “They finished second in the five-team meet with 79 points.”
