There will be a bit of black and gold on the Blue Oval of the 108th Drake Relays this week. Knoxville Freshman Katie Keitges, who has set new school records in the 800 and 1500 meter runs has qualified for the 1500 at the Drake Relays this coming Saturday. Keitges qualified with the 13th best time and will run Saturday afternoon. In an interview heard on the Marion County P-M Sports Page a few weeks ago, Keitges told KNIA/KRLS she likes the Drake Relays because she is able to run against girls from bigger and smaller schools. Keitges will run at around 12:45 Saturday afternoon at Drake Stadium.
