CHEROKEE – The Estherville Lincoln Central Girls Track Team finished fifth with 71 points at the Tomahawk Relays in Cherokee on Friday.
Odebolt-Arthur/Battle Creek-Ida Grove took first in the 11-team field.
“It was a good meet, and it was cold,” said ELC coach Tina Burton. “But we saw some personal bests and that’s what we’re looking for-continued improvement.”
