Boys’ track season continues in Ames
Despite fresh snow falling on the ground outside, spring sports are beginning to kick into full force this week for Iowa high schools. The area boys’ track teams continued their seasons at the ISU High School Boys Classic in Ames on Tuesday.
Newton took part in its second meet of the season following an impressive performance against conference opponents Friday in Grinnell. The Cardinals hoped to build on that performance, especially considering it was the first time for many of the athletes even practicing in their respective events, let alone competing.
Kicking off the festivities for the Cardinals with an impressive performance in the 60-meter hurdles was sophomore Deonne Harris. Harris bolted out to the lead in his heat and held on to the finish. His time of 8.50 seconds was good enough to place him fourth out of the more than 100 athletes competing. Harris’ time was nearly two-tenths of a second faster than his 8.69-second performance, which earned him a win in the same event at Grinnell on Friday.
