On Monday, April 30th, New Haven High School held the Four Rivers Conference Track Meet. St. James, Sullivan, Hermann, St. Clair, Owensville, Pacific, and Union participated in the meet as well as New Haven.
The first question asked to the Shamrock athletes was what they thought of Conference, and senior Emma Engelbrecht said, “I thought it was a pretty good day for our team as a whole. We had a lot of season bests and are starting to come together as a team.”
“It was pretty fun, but it started to get really hot as the day continued,” replied sophomore McKenzie Overschmidt.
Sophomore Lauren Hoerstkamp answered, “I thought it was great! It ran very smoothly and the sun was shining, so that was great!”
“The meet went pretty well, and it was fun all-around,” responded sophomore Samuel Penning.
The next question asked to the track athletes was how they performed in their events, and sophomore Kayla Brumels answered, “I performed pretty well in my events, better than I thought I would in the heat.”
“I did well in my events,” said sophomore Johnna Bloch.
“I think I did well, but I could’ve done better,” responded freshman Brande Kubiak.
“I felt like I did my best,” answered freshman Haleigh Nicholas.
The athletes were then questioned if they had any special moments, and sophomore Jenna Haeffner said, “I got 4th place in the junior varsity 400 meter dash.”
“When I got a personal record on all three of my discus throws,” answered freshman Bailey Leuthauser.
“I just liked watching everyone in the conference being gathered at our school. It was definitely a good conference track meet,” responded junior Elsie McNabb.
The Conference track meet went well for most Shamrock track athletes Monday. Good luck to the Shamrocks that are competing Saturday at Districts!
