Mustangs unable to round up Mavericks
ARMSTRONG – The Armstrong-Ringsted boys track team put everything on the line, but Clay Central-Everly was just too deep.
The Mavericks won the 2010 Cornbelt Conference Meet Tuesday with 176 points. A-R finish second with 148.
West Bend-Mallard/Twin River Valley was a distance third with 68 points followed by North Sentral Kossuth with 65, Corwith-Wesley-Luverne with 58, Ventura with 21 and Ruthven-Ayrshire with 13.
“They just had too much depth and talent,” said A-R coach Robert Zotz of CCE. “However, we showed lots of guts and played very hard, losing to one team and beating five others isn’t too bad.”
