With five teams in Class A at the 2014 Estherville Lincoln Central Girls Relays, the Midgets finished third overall with 95 points.

Spencer took top honors with 192 followed by Spirit Lake Park with 165. Forest City was fourth with 65 points while Storm Lake had 59 points.

ELC had five first place finishes on the night-two each by Alicia Jorgenson and Caitlyn Clayton and one by Megan Jensen.

Jorgenson won the 200-meter dash in 27.40 seconds the 400-meter dash in 1:02.01.

Clayton threw a career-best 115 feet, 1 inch in the discus. She also came up with a bit throw in the shot put of 40 feet, 3 1/2 inches.

Meanwhile Jensen won the 400-meter hurdles in 1:10.44

“Overall, we ran some races differently and placed higher in some events than what we have been,” said ELC coach Tina Burton. “It was fun to see us place in events we don’t normally place in.”

However, the Midgets still have some work to do.

“Our handoffs weren’t what they needed to be,” Burton said.

ELC is on the road at Humboldt on Monday and at Storm Lake on Thursday.
