Nebraska week

ending May 3

At the Mike Lehl Invite (Blair) on Friday:
Elizabeth Lange (jr.) of Lincoln Pius X ran a 2:09.40 800m today, second best in state history. She doubled up with a win in the 400m in 57.30. Current North Carolina Tarheel star Alice Schmidt (Elkhorn, 1999) set the record of 2:08.84.

At the Omaha North Invite on Thursday:
Colby Wissel, a junior from Kearney, set a meet record and the #2 time in Nebraska state history (behind current Univ. of Michigan runner Brian Turner, Millard North, 2000, 4:10.8) in the 1600m, 4:12.77. He beat his big rival, Jack Lemke, a junior from Omaha Benson, by over 9 seconds (4:22:23). Chase Beideck, a senior from Kearney, broke the meet record in the shot with a 60-5 throw. Beidick also took the discus in 167-3. Kearney's boys extended the nation's longest invitational meet winning streak to 75 (Kearney 181, Benson 97, Fremont 78.5). Kearney has won the past nine Class A state titles, and they have defeated over 7,000 opponents in a row without a loss. They look unbeatable once again. Omaha Central's 4x100 relay ran 42.62 to win.
In girls action, the best marks were Ashley Brown of Kearney's meet record of 15.23 in the 100 hurdles. Joslyn Dalton doubled in the 1600/3200, going 5:15.68 and 11:12.44.

At the Northeast Nebraska Classic on Thursday
Atkinson West Holt senior Cassidy "Bubba" Kramer broke the meet record in the shot put with a 60-11 toss. He doubled with a win in the discus at 174-0 (Trevor Votruba, sr., Norfolk, 173-7 was second).
