The Waukon girls track team was able to get its full slate of competition in this past week, although the second of those meets didn’t actually involve a full slate due to wet conditions causing the field events to not take place at the Thursday, April 28 MFL/MarMac Invitational. Regardless, the Lady Indians still won that MFL/MarMac meet after finishing fourth at their own Indian Relays two nights earlier, Tuesday, April 26, with the Indians not having two point-scoring sophomores in the competition mix this week due to injury.

The Waukon girls were next slated to compete in the Edgewood-Colesburg Invitational Monday, May 2 before taking part in the Northeast Iowa Conference Meet at Waverly-Shell Rock Thursday, May 5. The track Tribe will then prepare for its Class 2A State Qualifying Meet scheduled for Thursday, May 12 at Osage.
