Emmetsburg Thinclads Compete At Drake Relays

By Staff | Apr 28, 2009

Emmetsburg’s Lady E’Hawks and E’Hawks both had the honor of participating in the 100th Anniversary of the Drake Relays this past weekend. While none of the three entries qualified for finals, all three entries gained valuable experience in running on the Jim Duncan Track at Drake.

The outing started on Friday for E’Hawk senior Trevor Dettmann in the 110 high hurdles, where he ran a :15.48, which was the tenth fastest time overall, but did not advance to the finals.

Saturday was a tough day to run with rainfall and cooler conditions. The Lady E’Hawks’ Shuttle Hurdle Relay, with Nicole Leuer, Katie Malm, Bailee Moore and Kayla Herbers, ran a :70.21 to finish 14th overall in the event.

The E’Hawks’ Shuttle Hurdle Relay, with Jake Morris, Justin DeFord, Joey Naig and Trevor Dettmann, would turn in a time of :60.97, which equaled the ninth place time overall.
