Greene County is first outing for Lady Bulldogs

Ogden girls saw their first action last Tuesday at Jefferson, in a meet that was rescheduled from Monday due to the rain and cold. Although the Bulldogs finished fourth, Coach Dena Boyd says she is very happy with how every girl contributed and competed. “These girls gave their all for their team and I am excited to see how this attitude will benefit everyone in the end.”

Highlights from the day included Allea Klauenberg finishing strong in her two field events. A shot put throw of 33’ 4” put her in second place. Klauenberg claimed third in the discus throw at 92’ 2”.

Myra Bolton fought to the finish and edged her opponent by just .06 for second place in the 200 meter dash, finishing with a time of 29.60.

Boyd says Hannah Booth is steadily cutting time off of her races. The distance runner took second in the 3000 meter, running 12:05; and third in the 800, clocking 2:41.

In both the sprint and distance medleys, the Bulldogs placed second.

The coach feels the hurdlers will continue to drop times as they get more and more comfortable in their races.

Up next for the Bulldogs is a meet Tuesday, April 3 at Panorama.
