The start of Spring was marked today by the JMM Girls Track & Field team kicking off the 2014 season by traveling to Dubuque, IA to compete in a 16 team invitational against WI and IA teams. The team was represented in both varsity and jv competitions finishing 7th in varsity with 34 points and 8th in jv with 15 points. The performance of the day goes to the girls in the 1500m run who finished 2nd, 3rd, & 6th overall scoring 17 points in one event. They were led by freshmen Delaney E (5:17.46), followed closely by senior Meghan S (5:17.56), and joined by fellow senior Amelia F (5:24.90). Delaney, Meghan, & Amelia also joined senior Siena C to run a Spartan Seven time of 10:18.43 in the 4x800 finishing 6th. Siena C came back later in the meet to finish 4th in the 3000m run with an 11:32.90. Additionally, scoring in the 3000 was freshman Lilly S (6th) running 11:58.68.
