CLASS D GIRLS STATE TRACK PREVIEW: BDS no stranger to challenges

The Bruning-Davenport/Shickley girls track and field team may be short in numbers — according to head coach Fred Kluck, the Eagles have 13 athletes — but that didn't stop BDS from winning the Class D, District 4 championship.

And it won't stop the Eagles' seven competitors from giving their all Friday and Saturday at the state meet in Omaha.

Five of the Eagles' seven state qualifiers will compete in multiple events, with Catherine and Jennifer Mick qualifying in four events. The Eagles are spread out over eight different events.

"It's nice to have some balance in different events like that," Kluck said. "We cover the pole vault pretty well, we cover the hurdles pretty well, (Jennifer Mick) covers the sprints well and Kalli (Schroeder) covers the distance pretty well. And, we still have the depth to cover the relays."

Jennifer Mick qualified for the 100-meter dash, 200, 400 relay and pole vault. Going into the district meets, she was in the Tribland leaders for the pole vault and the 200. Last year, Mick tied for sixth at the state meet in the pole vault. Catherine Mick will compete in the 100 hurdles, 300 hurdles, 400 relay and the pole vault.
