WAVERLY – They came from far and wide.

Looking at the numerous schools which traveled to the Wartburg Co-ed Indoor Track & Field meet on Tuesday, March 18, they were from as far east as Cascade, from the west in Fort Dodge, the furthest north was Lake Mills and as far south as Montezuma. There were also plenty of schools from around the state in-between.

But both area schools Hampton-Dumont and West Fork competed with the best of them.

Although none came away with an individual title, finishing among the top-10 at this meet was a indeed a feat and several brought home top-three finishes in the meet in which no team scores were kept.

More on this story will be found in the March 26 print edition of the Hampton Chronicle.
