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).
