This weekend the boys track team competed in the Kansas Relays. The relays were in Lawrence, Kansas. Nate Kennedy qualified in the 100m and 400m. Glenwood also qualified three relay teams to compete at the Kansas Relays (4x100,4x200 and the 4x400).

Below is the recap from Coach Starner on how the Rams competed down in Lawrence.

Coach Starner’s Recap: Kennedy qualified in the 100m dash and 400m dash. Nate ran a :11.27 in the 100m prelims finishing 24th out of 44. He qualified for finals in the 400m dash after finishing 3rd in his heat with a clocking of :49.47. Kennedy would be seeded 5th overall in the finals for Saturday. But due to the cold and rainy weather on Saturday; Nate was scratched out of Saturday's Finals for the 400m Dash for precautionary reasons due to a tightness in hamstring.


The 4×100 Relay team of Saddler, Lee, Silvius and Vondra finished 59th with a time of :46.38.

The 4×400 Relay team of Stanislav, Weddum, Watson and Kennedy ran 3:27.36 and would clock the 9th fastest time in the prelims, but that time would not move onto the Finals based on the qualification procedures. Each heat winner got the automatic qualifying bid and then the next fastest time would round out the finals. The Rams finished 3rd in the 8th and final heat, but three other teams won their heat to receive the automatic qualifying standard, even though all three were slower than the Glenwood time.

The 4×200 Relay team of Saddler, Vondra, Watson and Kennedy finished 12th overall out of 36 teams, clocking a 1:33.29. The Rams finished third in their heat, behind #9 Grandview (1:32.28) and #3 Ankeny Centennial (1:30.83).
