The top area team in the girls standings was Morrill. The Lions were third with a total of 44 points.

The top scorer for the Kimball boys was Brady Kilgore, who’s going to Omaha in three events. Kilgore took first yesterday in the 110 hurdles, the 300 hurdles, and the high jump.
The top performer from local schools on the girls side of things was Hemingford’s Josie Stewart. Talk about some versatility; Stewart qualified for state with a first place finish in the 300 hurdles, a second place in the open quarter, and another second in the pole vault.
For Morrill, a solid day overall for both the girls and boys. Laura Sherrod qualified in the long jump and triple jump while Jerry Tarin won the pole vault and both Keaton Robb (long jump) and Blake Lofink (400 meters) both will head to Omaha after second place finishes.
