Bulldog Coach Dena Boyd said her girls weren’t running at full strength Monday, April 23 at Des Moines Christian due to illnesses and sore legs, but she was happy with their efforts. Hannah Booth one of the seniors who had just gotten back from the senior trip picked up a win in the 1500, running 5:32. Lauren Kennedy ran a season best time of 1:17 in the 400 meter hurdles.

“Both Allea Klauenberg and Hannah Dutcher are throwing well and scoring points for us, too,” said Boyd. 

 

At Woodward

 

The Bulldogs placed second as a team at Woodward-Granger Tuesday night, and were just seven points behind winner Greene County. 

“I’m proud of the girls for scoring so many points (130) and competing for their places, especially with how sore many of the girls are and how they’re struggling to keep their bodies healthy,” said Coach Boyd.  Ogden took first place in two events.

Gabby Diggs took some advice to heart and it paid off. Diggs was approached by a Des Moines Christian meet official following completion of the long jump event the night before. He noticed she was initiating her jump too early, cutting almost 12” from her final measurement. Diggs jumped 15’ 9” at Tuesday’s meet and took first place.

Booth won the 3000 meter run and finished second in the 1500. 

Individual results are published in the May 2 issue of The Ogden Reporter.
