For the E-M girls, Maitlyn Thomsen provided the scoring in Omaha with a fifth-place finish in the 100-meter hurdles in 16.33 seconds. Thomsen also placed 11th in the long jump at Burke Stadium with a jump of 15-10.  Her 2015 medal was her third straight year of earning some hardware at the State Meet, as Thomsen placed fifth in both 2013 and 2014 in the Class D girls long jump in Omaha.
