EMMETSBURG – With the Lakes Conference meet four days away, Estherville Lincoln Central coach Tina Burton is looking for more from her squad.

“We need to get down to business next week,” she said. “They’re ready to show the work they’ve done. We just have to prepare mentally over the next few days.”

On Thursday, the Midgettes finished fourth at the E’Hawk Relays with 108 points.

LeMars won with 136 points followed by Western Christian with 132, Spencer with 115. Emmetsburg was fifth with 89 points.

Senior Morgan Schichtl’s throw in the shot put was one of the team’s highlights as she threw 35 feet, 1/2 inch.

“Morgan had a big night for her-35 is where we know she can throw and tonight she did it,” said Burton.

Burton also said the shuttle hurdle relay team had its best time of the season. The team of Sadie Winter, Megan Karels, Irlanda Cabrales and Ashley Weston placed third with their time of 1 minute, 11.23 seconds. However the top three teams were separated by less than a second in the race. Emmetsburg won in 1:10.40 with LeMars 15 hundredths behind for second.

ELC won only one event, the sprint medley relay. The team of Alicia Jorgenson, Maggie McCauley, Casey Sievert and Emily Kirchner won in 1:57.41.

ELC went 2-3 in the 400-meter dash with Kirchner running in 61.43 seconds and Sievert in 62.97 seconds.

ELC’s 4×400 and 4×800 relay teams also finished second. Brianna Enerson, Macy Dahl, McKenzie Woodyard and Sievert clocked in at 10:33.55 n the 4×8000. The 4×400 team of Kirchner, Dahl, Sievert and Jorgenson finished in 4:18.65.

ELC went 3-4 in the 100-meter hurdles with Weston clocking in at 17.37 seconds and Winter in 17.55 seconds.

The Midgettes also went 3-4 in the long jump with Winter leaping 14 feet, 11 inches and Karels leaping 14 feet, 8 1/2 inches.

Also Dahl finished third in the 800-meter run in 2:32.40.

Allie Sievert placed third in the high jump with a leap of 4 feet, 10 inches.

ELC finished fourth in the 4×100-meter relay with Jorgenson, Molly Wittmer, Maggie McCauley and Paige Guge running a time of 55.56 seconds. The same foursome finished fourth in the 4×200-meter relay in 1:58.34.

The distance medley team of Wittmer, Guge, Tayler Bodle and Lissy Gjerde finished fourth in 5:02.85.
