Fast Times at North Central College!

1 min read

The DGS girls team competed Thursday night at the inaugural North Central College Cardinal Classic Invitational meet.  The field was loaded with talent from 11 local area high schools and the results showed that. The Mustangs performed well across the board and also had several stand out performances.  Senior, Abby Kargol placed 3rd in a stacked 3200m run, running an indoor school record time of 11:07.14, besting the previous record of 11:08.46 set last year by Amanda Thate.  Abby now holds both the indoor and outdoor school records in that event.  Junior, Michaela Hackbarth nearly set an indoor school record of her own with her winning performance in the 800m run.  Michaela ran 2:18.38 in her first 800m effort of the season, just missing the record of 2:18.28 set by Megan Rossi back in 2003.  Sophomore, Soren Umali bested a solid field of 55m hurdlers winning in a PR time of 8.68 seconds.  All three DGS athletes are currently ranked in the top 5 in the state in their respective events. They were not alone in great performances, as the team totaled 25 personal bests in the meet.  The team will return to North Central College on Monday to host the 12th annual Mustang Relays meet.
