Senior Emily Mantor of United South Central/Alden-Conger is poised for another strong track season as a distance runner. Mantor won the 3,200-meter run and was second in the 4x800 relay at an indoor meet Tuesday at Bud Myers Field House.

It’s safe to say Junior Emily Mantor of the United South Central/Alden-Conger girls track and field team is a high achiever.

Last spring she qualified for the Class A state meet and finished fifth in the 3,200-meter run with a time of 11:25.65.

This past fall, she qualified for the Class A cross country meet and placed fourth in 14:39.5.

This year all she wants to do is keep getting better.

“I just want to improve and have fun,” said Mantor at Tuesday’s USCAC five-team meet at Minnesota State’s Bud Myers Field House. “I ran OK at (the state track meet) last season but it wasn’t my best time. My best was 11:14 in the section meet last year.”

The 3,200 is definitely her strongest event in track. She also does the mile run and, lately, has been running with the 4x800-meter relay.

“I like the longer distances but the relays are fine, too,” she said. “Wherever the team needs me, that’s where I’ll go.”

Mantor began Tuesday’s meet with a second-place finish in 4x800-meter relay. She combined with Samantha Chaffe, Beth Stevermer and Amber Klein for a time of 10:44.0.

In her final event, Mantor won the 3,200 meters in 11:31.

The Rebels Mikayla Gormley was a three-event winner Tuesday, winning the 55-meter dash in 7.8 and taking the 200-meter dash in 25.29.

Gormley also combined with Annissa Janzig, Linsey Thisius and Caitlyn Klocek to win the 4x200-meter relay in 1:59.0.

USCAC’s Aubrey Olson was first in the 55 low hurdles in 9.51 and Amanda Allis won the shot put with a toss of 36-feet-10.5.

Fairmont won Tuesday’s meet with 188 points. The Rebels placed second (153), Holdingford was third (69), Minnesota Valley Lutheran placed fourth (60) and Gibbon-Fairfax-Winthrop finished fifth (60).
