Harrison girls’ track coach Scott Menze was hoping for a better finish for his team than ninth place in the 12-team Harrison Invitational track meet last week, but poor weather to start the season has teams still trying to figure out what events are best for their athletes.
“We want all our sprinters to at least get a mark in the 100, 200, and 400,” said Harrison coach Menze. “Because we missed the first two meets of the season (due to bad weather), we are still experimenting.”
One of those sprinters is Claudia Dawson, a regional qualifier in the 400 meters a year ago. Last week she won the event with a solid time of 1:03.78.
