The Lourdes Central Knights girls set a meet record in the 4x100 as the Lady Knights placed first as a team during the Lourdes Invite on Friday, May, 4 at the Nebraska City High School.
Macey Allgood, Anna Heng, Elaina Madison, and Brianna Fulton set a meet record in the 4x400 meter relay with a time of 4:17.06, breaking a 2016 meet record set by the Lady Knights, Libby Fulton, Leah DeFreece, Maggie Funke, and Laura Box.
“It was a great day for a meet,” Coach Michael Parde said. “Both of the Knight squads did very well. The field event athletes finally had some great weather to compete in. Athletes for both boys and girls started the day off scoring points and setting season and career records. The fun thing about the athletes setting pr’s (personal records) is that they have been able to keep breaking them. As long as we keep getting better, we are doing something right. The drive to keep getting better has allowed us to have the success we have had this year.”
