Davis County girls run away from competition at Lady Dee Early Bird Meet

CENTERVILLE — The Davis County girls track team seemed to be in mid-season form at Albia’s Lady Dee Early Bird Meet Thursday. The Mustangs won a dozen events in their outdoor opener, including a sweep of the field events, on the way to scoring 190 points to beat out second-place Centerville by almost 100 points.

“It was a cold start, but a nice start to the outdoor season,” Mustang head track coach Josh Husted said. “We saw areas that we needed to improve in, but we had an outstanding achievement in every single field event.”

“To have 12 first-place finishes overall, it shows the fight our girls have this early on in the season.”

Centerville, who was hosting the meet with Albia being on spring break, scored 98 points for its runner-up finish highlighted by winning runs the sprint and distance medley relays. Twin Cedars finished fourth with 68 points while Seymour came in sixth with 12 points in their outdoor openers.

Among the numerous highlights for the Mustangs on the night was sophomore Kate Birchmier, who had an impressive start in the field for the Mustangs. After breaking the school’s outdoor shot put record with a toss of 41-6, Birchmier added the discus throw to her Drake Relay-qualifying list with a winning toss of 126 feet.

Davis County hosts their first outdoor meet of the season next week, hosting the Dennis Anderson Relays. The Mustangs junior varsity will compete on Monday while the varsity squad will hit the track next Tuesday in Bloomfield.
