KML track and field faced strong competition while competing in the annual Washington County Invite. Though competition was stellar, KML was able to stay in the mix of it, doing very well as a team. The girls team had an exceptional meet and finished 4th on the day, out-scoring Slinger, West Bend East, Kewaskum, and Living Word. KML’s relay teams really stood out on the day, trimming precious seconds and boasting strong handoffs in almost every race. The boys 4×200 ran an excellent race and were rewarded with 3rd place (Mason Knueppel, Drew Truse, Hunter Schroeder, Levi Vagnini), trimming four seconds off of their season’s best time (1:37.87)! The boys 4×800 team also ran well, placing 4th with a time of 8:55.09 (Logan Measner, Keegan Kabelowsky, Max Banner, Aaron Weiss). On the girl’s side, the largely freshman 4×200 team, put together an excellent race, facing stiff competition they ran a season best 1:53.01, good for 3rd place (Stella Zarling, Nadia Schroeder, Eden Cruse, Lexi Cramer). Congratulations on dropping almost four seconds off your time, ladies!
