Track (4-21)

We had a request on the live chat today for more track coverage on the blog. And since I live to fill the requests of our wonderful readers, here you go!

I talked to El Dorado’s Molly Milbourn today about her time at the KU Relays. She won the 3200 at the KU Relays last weekend in 10.52.92, the first time she’d gone below 11 minutes.

No surprise, Milbourn was thrilled with her time. Especially since her goal was to finish in 11:04, a time she didn’t think she’d reach. She blew past it, besting her previous PR by nearly 30 seconds.

Milbourn, a junior, overtook Washburn Rural’s Avery Clifton in the final 200 meters. And when she saw her time, she was shocked.

Another finish from last week that was impressive to see was Valley Center’s Joe Fisher’s 10.3 in the 100 meters. I saw Fisher run at the Pre-State challenge, where he finished second in the 100 to Morgan Burns and then won the 200.

How about that Southeast girls 400 relay team? You know, that team is always fast and this year is no different. But the Buffs dominated at the KU Relays.
