RUTHVEN – Scheduling conflicts hampered the Graettinger/Terril-Ruthven-Ayrshire girls’ track team in a pair of events last week.

At the Alta-Aurelia Relays, Marly Bakken would earn a fourth place finish in the shot put for the Raider girls as the only competitor.

On Thursday, the squad, minus members from G-T, competed at the Jon Larsen Relays in Armstrong. Marly Bakken would win the shot put with a throw of 33 feet.

Additionally, Morgan McGrauth placed ninth in the 400m dash with a time 1:14.35.

“The girls that were present ran hard and we improved times in most events,” noted Coach Austin Simmelink.
