Girls’ Track: Mount Pleasant Dominates Home Relays

By: Nathan Bloechl — 

Mount Pleasant — Jadan Brumbaugh hurled a state best 44 feet, 1 inch in the shot put as the Mount Pleasant girls’ track team earned a solid home invite win at the Denny White Relays last night.

Brumbaugh, who automatically qualified for the Drake Relays next week, narrowly missed Mary Wester’s school record with her throw last night.

Grace Kelley was another top finisher for the Panthers. Kelley led the Class A discus with a toss of 115 feet, 4 inches, nearly five and a half feet better than that of second place Abbey Bence of West Burlington-Notre Dame.

The Lamm sisters also played a pivotal role in the win last night.

Both Karsyn and Kenna finished top-three in the hurdles, with Karysn winning the event in 16.19 seconds — Kenna placed third in 16.26 seconds — which both should be good enough to head to the Blue Oval.

Abby Blint, a state cross country qualifier, continued her ascension with a narrow win over Isabel Manning of Van Buren County in the 800m run. Blint ran 2:42.18 to squeak it out.

Cristina Carthey followed up a strong performance earlier this week with another last night, as she continues stacking success. Carthey won the 1500m run with a time of 5:35.53.

Mount Pleasant scored 207 points for first, West Burlington-Notre Dame finished as runner-up, while Keokuk placed third.
