The Pella High track teams opened the season Thursday night at the Little Hawkeye Conference Indoor Meet in Grinnell.

The Lady Dutch had seven first place finishes – Paighton Malek in the long jump, Emily Vos in the 60 and 200 meters, Emma Thoreson in the 60 meter hurdles and three different relay teams – shuttle hurdle (Kiki Pingel, Elsie Thoreson, Sydney Weppler, Emma Thoreson), 4×200 (Pingel, Mackenna Goemaat, Malek, Vos) and 4×400 (Pingel, Caroline McMartin, Erica Halstead, Lindsey Blommers).

For the boys, Reece Schnell took second place in his first even long jump competition, and the 4×800 relay team of Nick Bernhagen, Isaac Vos, Blaise Winegardner and Joshua Van Dusseldorp were also runners-up.

We’ll have a full season preview of both the Pella girls and boys track and field teams next Saturday on the Knoxville HyVee Radio Coaches Corner.
