The Denver men and ladies’ track teams competed Friday, May 10 at the state qualifier meet at Garner-Hayfield-Ventura. Other teams in attendance included Garner-Hayfield-Ventura, Eagle Grove, Aplington-Parkersburg, Osage, Crestwood, Emmetsburg, Clarion-Goldfield, Pochanon Area, New Hampton, Forest City, and Lake Mills.

Sometimes, in the pressure of do-or-die competition, things don’t go exactly as expected. This was the case for the Denver track teams, as some of the events they expected to automatically qualify for state in they did not. Stiff competition and a few unfortunate errors left some of the athletes without a guaranteed spot at the state meet.

The events that Denver automatically qualified for the state meet include: 400-meter hurdles with Ireland Pollock (District Champion); girls’ sprint medley (District Champion) with Tiffany Wright, Bella Laures, Ireland Pollock and Allison Waterman; 3000-meter run with Chloe Ristau; 4×200-meter relay with Katie Mortenson, Bella Laures, Ireland Pollock and Allison Waterman; 800-meter run, Allison Waterman and Alex Gebel (District Champions); 4×100-meter relay with Katie Mortenson, Bella Laures, Tiffany Wright and Ireland Pollock, and Brock Farley for shot put and discus. Allison Waterman for the 400-meter dash, the men's distance medley relay team, men's 4x800-meter relay team and Nathan Eggena for 400 meter hurdles all received an at-large bid Saturday afternoon for the state meet.
