With the possibility of winter weather moving back into Northeast Iowa later this week, the South Winn girls’ track team added Tuesday’s meet at Waukon to the schedule, finishing fourth with 72 points. Kee High won the team title with 154 points.

Leading the charge with three golds was Ellie Loesch. The senior sprinted down the track in the 100-meter dash in 12.96 for the crown and later added the 200-meter dash gold in 27.42. At the end of the night, Loesch joined forces with Ashley Kriener, Becca Wagner and Shira Hageman for gold in the 4x100, producing a combined time of 54.38.

Emmaleigh Ohrt sailed the discus 99 feet, 3 inches for her gold medal.
