At the state high school track meet North Tama’s Sarah Stokes claimed her second title in as many days a set another record in the process. After winning the 400 on Thursday in record fashion Stokes won the 400 hurdles this morning with a time of 1:02.14.
Stoke says she did a lot better than she thought she would. Stokes says her coach told her to run on the edge, but run in control and that’s what she did.
Stokes has two more events on Saturday, the 800 and the 1,500. She says she wants to run a good time and try to win the 800, and she says with the competition in the 1,500, she hopes to get a personal record.
Whitney Westrum ran the anchor leg as Waukee won the girls 4A four by 200 relay. Westrum says she’s excited to see what they can do in their other races. Waukee won the race while starting out in lane number eight. She says it’s tough because you don’t see anyone in lane 8.
