(KMAland) — Woooooeeee! The windshield wiper Mother Nature gave us last week was caught up last night with over 80 events at KMAland.
There haven’t been exactly a ton of track encounters, but there are a ton of new top fives. Today’s blog is dedicated to those…
I’ve updated the KMAland Girls Track & Field leaderboard, and there are 35 new top-fives after last night’s track action. Here they are:
100: It all starts here in the 100, where Riverside Veronica Andrusyshyn ran a 12.86 to move up to No. 2 on the list. They were running fast at Treynor, by the way. There are 20 of this meeting.
200: Riverside Izzy Blum (27.10) and Maddie Bergman of Lewis Central (27.13) are ranked 3rd and 4th respectively.
400: Logan Magnolia Courtney Sporrer decided to show his speed in the quarter with a 1:01.84, ranking No. 5 in the region.
800: Big evening in the half mile! of the Atlantic Ava Rush (2:24.09), Audubon’s Hannah Thygesen (2:27.52), Mayson Hartley by Clarinda (2:29.00) and Courtney Sporrer of Logan-Magnolia (2:32.01) are now our 2-5 in the area. They’re all still chasing that 2:22.52 from Harlan’s Kaia Bieker.
3:00 p.m.: The four best times in the region fell last night. Courtney Sporrer (5:13.06), Denison-Schleswig Lola Mendlik (5:14.91), Logan-Magnolia madison sporrer (5:15.90) and Clarinda Mayson Hartley (5:17.67) all listed in that order after last night’s events. Big up to those who had a chance against the Sporrer and Hartley in the same race.
3000: Madison Sporrer takes first place after posting an 11:20.83 in the Treynor encounter. Clarinda’s Hartley is now No. 3 after an 11:31.08, and Audubon’s first year Stefi Beisswenger clocked an 11:46.85 to rank No. 5.
100 hurdles: Still at Treynor last night, Clara Teigland continued to push his time lower and lower. She is the first KMAlander to go under 16 seconds this season, posting the best time in the zone (15.96). Riverside’s Andrusyshyn is No. 5 with a 16.66 last night.
400 hurdles: Atlantic Chloe Mullenix is gradually approaching this Drake Relays Blue Standard. She went in 1:08.67 to move up to No. 2 in KMAland (behind Abby Hughes of Glenwood, who clocked a Blue Standard time of 1:06.48 over the weekend). Tri-Center Quincey Schneckloth improved his time this season with a 1:10.84 and is No. 4. And get it, Schneckloth went to Treynor after playing a full game of football! That, my friends, is why Quincey’s face is at the helm of today’s blog. I love bi-athletes. by Treynor Carissa Spanier is also in the top five thanks to his 1:11.42 last night.
4×200: Lewis Central’s 4×200-meter relay team clocked 1:51.76 to move up to No. 5 for the season.

The boys narrowly outplayed the girls last night. There are 41 new top-fives!
100: CAM Lane Spieker finally had a full track encounter, and he took advantage of it. Spieker ran an 11.26 at Lenox and is No. 4 in the straight race.
200: Spieker was even better in the 200, taking a win in 23.07. This is the new No. 2 time at KMAland.
400: A big night for quarter-miles. The top five has been almost completely reset. Mount Ayr Ryce Reynolds continues to fall, posting a 50.23 to maintain its lead in the race. by Kuemper Michael Pottebaum ran a 51.14 (#2), Shenandoah’s Alex Razee sprinted to a 52.00 (#4) and Red Oak’s Jack Kling is back with a 52.16 (No. 5).

110 meters hurdles: The two best times remained, but the next three are new. Johnathan Weaver from Lenox (15.36), from Audubon Gavin Smith (3:40 p.m.) and CAM jack follman (15.49) are now 3-4-5.

It is number 2 of KMAland. And finally, Mound City’s William Rother jumped in a three-way tie at No. 4 with his jump of 11-00.00.
Throw the javelin: Give up for Alex Rinehart of Worth County, who is still No. 1 in this event, but he extended his lead with a 150-11.25 throw. Northeast Nodaway Dawson Vore is the new No. 5 with a draw of 127-03.75.
