GRISWOLD GIRLS STATE TRACK PREVIEW: CAN THEY DEFEND TITLE?

Rebekah Topham leads the Tiger’s list of qualifiers. The two event Drake Relay’s winner is the favorite to win the 400M Hurdles, 800, 1,500, and 3,000. The key will be how many points the Tigers get in their other events such as freshman Alyx Flippen in the 1,500 and 3,000 and the Distance Medley Relay.

Coach Everett also notes the 4X400 and 4X800 could score some points for the team if they run well. He describes the experience that his team has running at Drake Stadium as ‘huge’. Another factor in Griswold being able to defend their state title is how good of shape they are in compared to their opposition.
