Girls HS Track and Field: Mandan showing significant progress after first 3 meets

National Sports

In girls high school track and field, the Mandan Braves have really made progress since the beginning of the season.

In their first outing at the State Indoor Meet in Fargo, the Braves took 12th, but Mandan followed that performance with a fourth-place finish at the WDA Indoor Meet. Then last Friday, they took home second at Watford City.

This is a young team for Mandan. Of the 40-plus girls competing, Alexis Radke is the only senior. and she and head coach Brooke Wiedrich agree that so far they like what they have seen from the team.

“Because we are one of the smaller teams,” Alexis Radke said, “were not like Bismarck where we have a bunch of girls coming out. We really try to work together and go to practice with one another and give our best and give 110 percent effort.”

“Our sprints are probably going to be the strongest this year,’ Wiedrich said, “Just overall, we have a lot of young athletes. We have a lot of speed. We have a lot of veteran athletes with a lot of speed. I think we’ll really step up in that area.”

The Minot Invite is the next scheduled event for the Braves on April 18.
