“It was a really good showing by the girls,” commented NFV head coach Mark Nuss after his girls placed third in Thursday’s UIC Meet in Guttenberg. 

“We scored in every event but the one that we did not have someone competing,” Nuss explained. “We were also able to double-up in several events.”

As expected, Kee won with 151 points. Central/Elkader and NFV formed a solid two-three with 138 and 116 points, respectively. South Winn was a distant fourth with 91 points.

The NFV senior boys won their fourth consecutive UIC track championship on Thursday, May 2, in Guttenberg. This time the guys won in dominate fashion, beating second place South Winn by 70 points, 204-134.

   As one might expect with so many points, the medal count was very high; infact the TigerHawks earned 19 of them, including 11 gold medals. NFV was able to finish one-two in four different events.

  This was especially true in the distance events where Chandler Douglas and Caleb O’Hare finished first and second, respectively, in the 800 and 1600. The duo ran side-by-side throughout the 3200 before putting on a strong burst down the backstretch with O’Hare taking the gold and Douglas claiming silver.
