Girls’ Track: Brumbaugh Shines as Panthers Take Third

Jadan Brumbaugh finished just one-half inch away from the school record in the shot put as the Mount Pleasant girls’ track team finished third overall at the Tulip Time Meet.

Brumbaugh’s toss, 44 feet, two inches, was the talk of the meet — Brumbaugh is cruising as she remains steadfast in her pursuit of a state title.

The Panther shuttle hurdle quartet of Karsyn and Kenna Lamm and Jenna and Josie Gilmore went 1:10.54 for first, beating Newton’s group by nearly two seconds.

Mount Pleasant had four runner up’s, while they had three events who took third.

The Little Dutch won the girls’ team title race with 176 points, while Oskaloosa took second.

The Panthers scored 113 points for third.
