TIME TRIAL

Over 30 cows came out to compete in the spring time trial! For the first unofficial meet of the season, there were some amazing performances. Out of the 21 male athletes in the mile, Evan Routhier finished in first in 4:26. On the female side, while only 4 cows competed, Allie Levin came out on top with an impressive time of 5:38. The 200m and 800m races had less competitors, but no shortage of fast times. Peter Van Beek and Alice Hermet sprinted to victory in the 200m finishing with times of 23.25 and 28.5. Martin Haugstad and Zoe Panos were the champions in the 800m, finishing in 2:06 and 2:32.

While it's true these individual races provide a great baseline for the rest of the season, the event we were all waiting for was the 4x400m relay. The all male team of Gabe, Payton, Logan, and Kevin came out victorious. Thanks to all the competitors and volunteers for making the event a success!

Complete meet results can be found here, and the pictures can be found here. Thank you Luke for taking some great photos!
