CHS steps up for competition


With tougher competition at the Milford Invitational April 9, the Centennial track team stepped up.

Savannah Horne set a new meet record in the 200-meter dash, winning in 25.92 seconds. She also won the 100 in 12.7 seconds.

Paul Fehlhafer scratched his first two attempts in the shot put but came back to win the event with a throw of 50-11.5.

Camden Winkelman set a new personal best in the pole vault at 12-6 and finished second. Ella Wambold placed second in the 1,600-meter run with a time of 6:03.85.

Also in the distance, Grace Schernikau broke 13 minutes (12:55.01) in the 3,200 and finished third.

Wambold joined Cora Payne, Karley Naber and Marley Olson to finish second in the 4x800 relay.

Josie Butzke set two PRs in the hurdles – 17.44 in the 100s for third place and 52.64 in the 300s for fourth.

“Her technique in the 100 has improved with four-stepping and alternating lead legs,” Coach Rob Johansen said. “That time placed her No. 8 on our school’s top 10 list.”

Trevor Fehlhafer earned sixth in the discus with a PR of 124-5.

“Nice weather made a huge impact on the personal bests for the season,” Johansen said. “Low winds and warmer temps were a big highlight as we are already past midseason for the year.”

The Broncos were scheduled to host their invitational April 16. The next competition is Monday, April 22, in a quad at Sutton.
