At a meet that saw several athletes missing because of other extracurricular activities, several Fillmore Central athletes still let their stars shine at the 2015 Dale Feeken Memorial Track Meet.
Panther Jarrod Hinrichs set a New School Record in the shot put on April 8 at Hastings Adam Central.  The FC senior won the event with a heave of 50-feet, 6-inches.  Teammates Nate Rasmussen and Jamey Broman also enjoyed outstanding days in Hastings.  The Panther boys landed in second place in the team standings with 112 points.  The host Patriots won both the girls and boys team standings.  The FC girls took fourth place on April 10 with 53 points.
Broman struck gold in Hastings in the long jump with a winning leap of 15-7.50.  Broman also blazed second-place finishes in the 100-meter dash, 13.55; and 400-meter dash, 61.95.  Broman chased home Minden's Addison Woodward in both events.  Rasmussen won two individual events at the invite.  The Panther speedster took first in the 200-meter dash in 23.52 seconds and also sailed to victory in the long jump with a winning effort of 20-6.25.  Rasmussen was also second in the 100-meter dash, 12.05 seconds; and teamed up with Heath Boman, Josh Taylor and Christian Lovan to earn runner-up honors in the 100-meter relay in 46.71 seconds.
"The boys were a little short-handed with the FFA and FBLA kids gone at state convention," Panther boys coach Adam Verhage said.  "I like how the boys competed.  Nate (Rasmussen) really did well and Heath Boman was great today.  I like how we are progressing...the kids are continuing to improve.  Jarrod (Hinrichs) also set the school record in the shot."
FC girls coach Colby Smith commented the Panther girls displayed great effort and determination at the meet.
"With only nine girls, the Lady Panthers placed fourth out of eight teams and brought back nine medals for their efforts," Smith said.  "Jamey Broman won the long jump and placed second in the 100 and 400.  Alexis Schmidt placed second in the shot and third in the discus.  As a team, I thought the girls showed the potential that this young team has to compete and we continue to take more steps in improving each day bettering ourselves as a team."
