    On May 10th, the Durant Wildcats high school girls’ track team was in Tipton for districts for a 2A qualifying meet.

    Durant’s Meg Koenig finished first in the 200-meter dash with a time of 26.83 seconds. Since Koenig placed first, she will be moving on to state.

    Durant’s Abby Ryan placed fourth in the 400-meter dash with a time of 1:03.11 minutes, qualifying her for state as well. Koenig also placed fourth in the 100-meter dash in a time of 13.36 seconds.

    When Ryan was asked how she feels going to state, she said she was “really excited about making it, but a little nervous.”

    Ryan also said, “I hope next year we can get more people to state.”

    Ryan placed sixth in the 200-meter dash in 28.55 seconds. Senior Ellie Berry placed sixth in the 1500-meter run in 5:34.88. Freshman Elizabeth Daufeldt placed eighth in the high jump with a leap of 4-06.
