Mustang girls track set new marks at Brookhart Relays


MOUNT PLEASANT — Another round of record-setting efforts led to another great night for the Davis County girls track team Monday at Fairfield's Brookhart Relays. Fresh off a pair of top-ten finishes at the Drake Relays, sophomore Kate Birchmier set another new benchmark in program history with a record toss in the discus as the Mustangs finished second as a team with 148.5 points, 29.5 behind Mount Pleasant.

"This was a great meet on a nice night for our girls track team," Davis County head girls track coach Josh Husted said. "This is the best that we have done (as a team) since I have been at Davis County. It seems like our girls are getting better in each meet. "

"We had several hall of fame performances, school records, and meet records broken in this meet. Our girls are also climbing the ranks within 2A across Iowa."

Birchmier toss of 137-11 broke the previous school record set back in 1981, giving the sophomore a sweep in the field along with a win in the shot put after winning with a toss of 39-10.25. Other Mustang winners on Monday included Chandra Smith in 3,000-meter run (12:08.6) and Maggie Hougland in the 400 meter dash (1:04.59).

Fairfield finished third as a team in their home meet with 135 points. Centerville also finished sixth on Monday.
