GIRLS TRACK: Lynx unable to keep up with metro schools, place ninth at Waukee Relays

WAUKEE – The Webster City girls’ track team got a first-hand look at how the big schools do business here last night and Lynx head coach Kristi Manson said one word summed up the outing: Humbling.

“It was definitely a humbling experience,” she said after her squad scored just 34 points and placed ninth at the Waukee Relays. “But it’s also great for the girls to go up against that kind of competition.”

Host Waukee was a bully all night, piling up a whopping 213.5 points. Johnston was a distant second with 85.

WCHS placed no higher than fourth in any event, and that included the sprints where sophomore Allie Flaws failed to win a regular season race for the first time.

But that had everything to do with the competition.

Flaws raced to her No. 5 seed in the 100-meter dash in 12.92 seconds, and she later was fourth in the 200 (26.88). Twin sister Ashley Flaws was solid in the 400; she was fourth (1:06.19) as well.

Kaylee Schnathorst added a fourth-place result in the shot put (32-4).
