(Guthrie Center) The Guthrie Center girls track team has just 12 athletes on the team this year but it’s a squad that expects to be strong in the distance events as well as the hurdles.
Guthrie Center’s 2012 girls track team features several returning state qualifiers including distance runners Therese Frels and Leah Courtney who were also state cross country qualifiers.
Guthrie Center head coach Dave Spratte says the shuttle hurdle relay team has a goal of returning to the state meet for the fourth straight year. Guthrie Center placed 5th at last years state meet in the shuttle hurdle relay.
Coach Spratte says the unseasonably warm weather has also helped the team to be ahead of schedule. The next meet for Guthrie Center will be Monday at Jefferson.
