LAURENS — The Graettinger/Terril girls track team scored 21 points to place sixth at the Charger Coed Relays on MOnday.

“We placed well in all our events,” said G/T coach Karlton Hector. “Amanda Oleson got back on track in the 800 after an illness and Lindsay (Flaharty) ran a personal best in the 400. Both these girls are young and have a lot to look forward to in their track careers”

Olesen took third in the 800-meter run in 2 minutes 45.72 seconds.

Flaharty was second in the 400-meter dash in 1:08.17 and fifth in the 100-meter dash in 14.07 seconds.

Amanda Kropf added a fourth-place finish in the discus with a throw of 94 feet, 1 inch and sixth in the shot put with a toss of 30 feet, 2 inches.

“Amanda has been consistent all year long in both the shot put and discus,” said Hector. “We can always count on her to place in both her events night and night out.
