EPC begins prep track and field season
MENOMONIE - The Elmwood/Plum City prep track and field team got the 2013 season underway Friday in the Blue Devil Open held at UW-Stout's Johnson Fieldhouse.
EPC was the smallest school in the field. The girls finished 11th out of 15 schools and the boys were 15th out of 17 schools competing nbut both teams had several place winners. Hudson swept both the boys' and girls meet.
The highest place for the EPC girls was their 1600-meter relay squad. They finished second in 4:30.04 seconds. In fact EPC had a very good day in relays for both boys and girls as the girls' 800-meter relay team finished eighth and the boys' 1600-meter relay team finished fifth.
Individual place winners included Leonie Rensner, eighth in 55-meter hurdles; Jillian Holt, fifth in the pole vault with a mark of 7-0 and Andrew Gilles, seventh in the 3200-meter run.
EPC will be in action next weekend at the even bigger Northern Badger Track Classic, also at UW-Stout.
