DES?MOINES - With less than optimal conditions for most of the weekend, track and field athletes from Emmetsburg gave strong performances at the 2017 Iowa State Track and Field Championships. The State Meet concluded Saturday after a three-day run at Drake Stadium in Des Moines.

Highlighting the E-Hawks and Lady E-Hawks' appearances at State was a new Emmetsburg High School record performance for the boys' 4x200 relay during action on Friday afternoon. In wet conditions on the Jim Duncan Track in Drake Stadium, the foursome of Aaron Hutchison, Brent Wesley, Blake VerMulm and Grant Deitering earned a fifth place finish in Class 2A with their new EHS?record time of 1:31.98.

The Lady E-Hawks had several solid finishes in their competition, starting with an eighth place finish in Class 2A for Shelby Loomis in the 400 meter dash. Loomis ran Thursday evening and finished with a time of 1:00.32 to cap off her high school career.
