The state high school track meet opened this morning with a record setting run in class 2A. Carly Olsen from Logan-Magnolia won a second straight title in the three thousand meter run with a time of ten minutes 16-point-seven-four seconds.
Olsen says she went out with the goal of setting a new record. Olsen says she knew she had to work hard and turn in her best.
Megan Glisar of Sergeant Bluff-Luton is now a record holder in two different classes. After winning the class 2A high jump a year ago and setting a record in the process, Glisar won the 3A high jump earlier today and equaled the 3A record of five feet, six inches.
Glisar missed on three chances to set a new record. She says five eight and a quarter is her personal best, but it didn’t work out to clear that today.
The Monticello won the boys four by eight hundred meter relay for the second straight year. Travis Larson ran the anchor and the winning time was seven minutes, 59 point-six-six seconds. Larsons says it was a total team effort. Moticello had finished second in the event at the Drake Relays, and they knew they had to run hard.
