The Gladbrook-Reinbeck Boys & Girls Track Teams had a busy week on the track. Monday, both teams traveled to Oelwein for the Wapsie Valley Warrior Coed. Thursday, the girls traveled to Grundy Center, while the boys traveled to Parkersburg. And Friday, the girls went to La Porte City, while the boys went to Dike. If anything, we did get a chance to compete this week in some decent weather.
Hopefully, we can continue to improve and put together some relays that can contend for a state berth. Obviously, the middle distance events are our strength in both the boys and girls. Some of the performances last week were not indicative of what we can do, but other performances gave us a glimpse of some strong possibilities. We will continue to fine-tune things and train our best for a strong finish to the season.
The Rebels saw some impressive performances on the track. We are looking to put our best foot forward as the homestretch of the season is upon us. The NICL West Meet will be Monday, April 29th at Grundy Center. And the State Qualifying Meet is on May 9th at Grundy Center as well. The season is winding down quickly!
