On Wednesday, the Bruning-Davenport/Shickley Eagles track team traveled back to Friend for the second meet in a row, this time to participate in the Meridian Mustang Invitational.  Once again, windy and cool weather prevailed. Athletes could compete, but also had to contend with the conditions and try to perform.
The girls team was led by Catherine Mick's four gold medal day performance.  She started by winning the pole vault with a leap of 10-feet, 6-inches.  She followed that up with a victory in the 400-meter dash in a time of 65.5 seconds.  She completed her day by winning both hurdle events, the 100-meter hurdles in a time of 15.7 and the 300-meter hurdles in a time of 49.2.  
Courtney Kamler added a third-place finish in the pole vault to the team's total and then joined with Brice Ardissono, Lexi Kadel and Haley Pena Lopez to take sixth in the 3,200-meter relay.  Lexi later came back with a fifth-place finish in the 1,600 meter run to complete her day.  Tara Lee Hudson broke the School Record and established a personal best by tossing the shot 31-10 and taking fifth place and Megan Grote captured a sixth-place point in the high jump to round out the girls scoring.
The boys were led by Hunter Krehnke's hurdling success as he won the 110-meter hurdles with a  personal best time of 16 seconds and he later placed third in the 300-meter hurdles as well.  Sam Christensen also doubled up as he claimed third in the 110 hurdles and fourth in the high jump.  Taylor Anderson took third in the high jump, Kendall Dickson was fifth in the shot put, and Brandon Anderson was sixth in the triple jump to complete the boys scoring.
Both the boys and the girls teams were missing some team members due to the FFA Convention in Lincoln.
