2017 ELC Relays ELC runs strong in sprint relays

By Staff | Apr 23, 2017

While Estherville Lincoln Central couldn’t come up with any top finishes, the girls did come up with a couple second place finishes in the sprint relays at their own Class A Relays on Friday.

The foursome of Ieshia Klein, Riley Christoffer, Natalie Lausen and Morgan White placed second in both the 4×100 and 4×200 to pace the Midgets. The Midgets also had a second-place finish in the sprint medley with Ieshia Klein, Lausen, Riley Christoffer and Hannah Olson.

“We had huge results tonight,” said ELC coach Tina Burton. “We had many personal records for everyone. Handoffs were either spot on or a few struggled but adrenaline will do that to them every time. The girls are understanding the importance of the adjustments and how the handoffs affect the overall times of their relays. It’s exciting to see them understand the need to make them better. “Field events saw some personal bests as well, “Burton continued. “Throwers finished their throws very excited about their efforts. I enjoy seeing them excited about meeting their goals.”
