Lakeville North Girls Win Conference
May 31, 2011By Todd Endersbe of Lakeville North Track & Field
This brings us to the South Suburban Conference Championships at Apple Valley High School. The girls were eager to right a wrong the week before and came out firing on day one. After the first day, we were 7 points ahead of Prior Lake and 11.5 points in front of Lakeville South. The scores were 36, 29, and 24.5.
Final in the Pole Vault, Discus, Triple Jump, 3200m, and 4x800m relay. Nicole Naatjes won the vault, Emma Erickson won the Discus, Angie Anyaogu took second in the Triple Jump, Taylor Perkins finished 6th in the 3200m, and the 4x800m relay placed 7th. The other races were prelims and we felt good going into finals. We had everyone successfully qualify that should of.
Day two was similar to day one...we just kept on rolling. The field events continued to the top story. Jennifer Svobodny won the Shot Put, Angie came back and won the Long Jump, and Katie Dillie whom last week had a frustrating meet at true Team State stormed back to finish second in the High Jump. We either won a field event or took second.
On the track we were steady. Angie Anyaogu and Rachel Banham scored well in the 100m, Banham and Alexa Trakalo moved up one place each to get us much need points in the 200m, 8th grader Saija Lowery ran a tough 400m to finish 5th. The girls 4x100m relay team of Anyaogu, Nicole Naatjes, Trakalo, and Banham finished in 3rd. In the 100m High Hurdles faired well, Emily Pratt -2nd, 8th grader Michaela Preachuk placed 5th, and Max Leake finished 8th. 9th grader and newly appointed 300m hurdler Kendall Naatjes finished a strong third.
With 10 points in front of Prior Lake going into the final event, the 4x400m relay needed to finish in the top 8. The team of Lowery, Jaya Perkins, Taylor Perkins, and Michelle Ferguson finished 7th while Prior Lake placed second.
Girls win 117 to 113 over Prior Lake with Lakeville South finishing a strong third with 101.5 points. The top five teams had a 20-point separation between them.
