AMES - The Washington and Mid-Prairie girls track teams ran at the Iowa State High School Girls Classic Monday. It was an indoor meet.
Mid-Prairie’s Marie Hostetler won the 3000-meter race in a time of 10 minutes, 19.93 seconds. The Drake Relays qualifying standard is 10:30.0. Teammate Ana Fleming was 29th in 12:18.0.

The 4x400 meter relay team of Ashley Telleen, Leah Marek, Tori Hinson and Pacha finished in 4:38.66 to place 34th.
“Kelsey Pacha had a great meet,” Washington coach Stefanie Haworth said. “To finish fifth in the long jump was a great way for her to start her freshman year. She also ran solid splits in the 4x1 and 4x4. She works hard at practice everyday and I can’t wait to watch her continue to improve each meet. I was also very pleased with Ashley Telleen and Leah Marek in the 4x400. They both had solid splits and I expect them to drop all season.”
Isabel Bailey was 39th of 90 in the long jump at 14-0.5. Washington teamates Elyse Hunt (9.13) and Olivia Marek (9.43) were 74th and 99th of 135 in the 60 meters.

The 4x100 of Marek, Bailey, Hunt, and Pacha ran 54.60 to take 20th out of 60 total.
“It was a good first meet,” Haworth said. “We were without a few girls due to spring break, but overall, the girls that competed did well. You can tell it’s still early and there are some things we haven’t had much of a chance to work on yet, but I felt like everyone left it all out there. It was a good starting point.”
