Track girls look ready for meets that will count

The Ranger girls’ track and field team wrapped up its fourth and final time trial last week. If the early results are any indication, the regular season – which started with a meet in Roseville this Tuesday – could be one to remember.

Forest Lake has already seen 12 entries qualify for the state honor roll. Rocci Wohlk qualified in a pair of long-distace running events. The ninth-grader finished the 1600-meter run in 5:22 and the 3200-meter run in 11:32. Seventh-grader Allie Bartlett ran the 3200 in 11:23.

Junior Jessica Dhaene made the list in the 300 hurdles, having posted a time of 48.73.

Sophomore Caitlin Freer has reached a distance of 34-1 in the triple jump. High-jumper Sarah Jaeb, a ninth-grader, has cleared 5-2.

Two Rangers are honored in the shot put: senior Sam Anderson threw 37-8 and sophomore Bailey Norby threw 35-11. Anderson also is on the honor roll for a discus throw of 128-8.

Three girls made the cut in the pole vault: sophomore Katie Dison and ninth-grader Cassidy Baker cleared 9-6, while junior Cassie Geisner cleared 9-0.
