HHS senior trackster Marissa Smith broke two more records last week at the Yuma Bill Kalb Invitational Thursday, April 29.

The sprinter claimed meet records in the 200 and 400 meter races with times of :25.91 and :59.25 respectively. Smith would have broken the record in the 100 meter dash as well, but the race was “wind-aided” and did not qualify for a new record.

After Saturday’s competition at the Dick Evans Invitational in Wray, Holyoke will be sending another relay team to the state meet. The girls’ 4x200 meter relay with Heather Duester, Marci Vasa, Mallory Bennett and Smith had a state-qualifying time of 1:47.02.

HHS girls’ team claimed second place at both meets last week.

With a number of first-place finishes at Yuma and Wray, Holyoke athletes are looking good heading into post-season action.

Top honors at Yuma were earned by Duester, Bennett, Vasa and Smith in the 4x200 meter relay; Smith in the 100, 200 and 400 meter dashes; and Jeremy Loutensock in the 800 meter run.

First place at Wray was claimed by KrisAnna Ham, Bennett, Vasa and Duester in the 4x100 meter relay; Duester, Bennett, Vasa and Smith in the 4x200 meter relay; Smith in the 100, 200 and 400 meter dashes; Vasa in the triple jump; and Loutensock in the 800 and 1600 meter runs.

“Overall we are doing well,” said coach Sandra Rahe. “We are nursing a few injuries but hope to be at full strength in another week.”

Heading into the end of the season, the weather is finally beginning to cooperate with the team. “The kids are doing great and they continue to get better and stronger,” added Rahe.
