Fillmore Central competed somewhat shorthanded in the 2017 Dale Feeken Memorial Track Meet on Friday, April 7, at Hastings Adams Central. Despite this, the Panther girls finished in second place in the team standings at the 8-team, large school meet in Hastings. Conditions were less than ideal for the field events with a never-ending gusty wind blowing. Track conditions were somewhat better and improved as the meet progressed.
Panther Jamey Broman was able to brave the conditions and win three events on Friday. The FC junior won the 200-meter dash in 26.54 seconds and the 400-meter dash in 63.50 seconds. Broman also bested the field in the long jump with a leap of 16-feet, 4.25-inches. Teammate Grace Jacobson struck gold in the 1,600-meter run in a winning time of 5:42.34.
FC's McKenzie Scheil and Alexis Schmidt continued their dominance in the throws for the Panthers. Scheil won the discus with a PR toss of 116-.50 in the brutal windy conditions in Hastings. Schmidt was third with a throw of 109-9.50. Schmidt struck gold in the shot put with a heave of 41-2, while Scheil was runner-up with a toss of 37-7.
