Track turns into fun sport for East's Karge


In an indoor meet at Minnesota State on Thursday, Karge won the high jump at 4-10 and helped the 4x200-meter relay team finish third (1:56.7).

Paarmann says he has about 120 girls out in grades 7-12 this season. With state qualifiers Claire Ziegler and Alyson Enderle back to anchor the throws, that figures to be a strong suit this spring.

Karge is also one of the captains as is sprinter Mishya Rowe, another returning state qualifier who will do mostly 200s and 400s and compete on some relays.

The veteran coach believes the Cougars can finish in the top three again in the Big Nine Conference this season. He also hopes East can successfully defend its section true-team title and move up from its seventh-place finish at last year’s state meet.

At an indoor meet hosted by Blue Earth Area at Minnesota State on Thursday, the Bucs’ Taylor Grandgenett won the 55-meter high hurdles in 9.25, Skylee Bell won the 55-meter dash in 7.52, Karli Olsen took the 400 meters in 62.36 and Shayna Stevermer won the 55-low hurdles in 9.47.

East’s Steph Morrow won the pole vault (8-6), while the Lake Crystal Wellcome Memorial/Nicollet foursome of Jordan Welsch, Maddy Saucier, Damia Siebenhaler and Tessa Germscheid won the 4x200 relay in 1:37.1.

St. Clair’s Julia Loeffler captured the 1,600 meters in 6:02.4.

There were eight events remaining in the meet when the paper went to press.
