STORM LAKE — The Estherville Lincoln Central girls track team ran at the rain-shortened relays in Storm Lake on Thursday.

The Midgettes still had time to make a few highlights.

ELC’s distance medley won in 4 minutes, 32 seconds. The foursome consists of Taylar Jacobson, Brenna Wegner, Landra Lapka and Emily Jensen.

Jensen added another first-place finish in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:31.

The 4×800-meter finished second as the team of Brooke Egeland, Halli Winter, Beth Larscheid and Brittany Ross clocked in at 10:40.

Thrower Christina Weston’ had her own peronsal highlight with a career-best throw in the shot put of 35 feet, 10 1/2 inches.

While that only placed her third, a throw over 35 feet often is good enough to qualify for state competition.

The Midgettes return to action next Tuesday at the Sheryl Mahs Relays in Spirit Lake.
