Wulfekuhler sets meet record, makes history

Thursday, April 19, 2001

SHELDON - Amy Wulfekuhler set a new meet record in winning the long jump to help Storm Lake finish sixth in the Sheldon Invitational girls track and field meet Tuesday night.

Unity Christian won the meet with 112 points. Storm Lake scored 46.

Wulfekuhler leaped a career-best 17 feet, 3 1/2 inches to win the event. The sophomore became only the second girl in school history to break the 17-foot barrier. Marianna Gutz jumped 17-8 in 1985, which won the state title that year.

Freshman Molly Daniels captured the 200 meters with a time of 28.07 seconds. Paige Havens claimed the 400 meter hurdles in a time of 1 minute, 10.2 seconds.

Stacy Schmidt placed second in the 100 meters in 13.16 seconds, while the 4x100 relay team of Schmidt, Havens, Jill Parman and Daniels was second in 53.18 seconds.

The sprint medley relay placed fifth with a time of 2:05.99, while the distance medley was sixth in 4:51.9. The 4x800 relay also was sixth with a time of 11:41.6.

Freshman Morae Youde took sixth in the 100 meters in 14.09 seconds and sixth in the 200 in 29.66 seconds.

"The girls did a fine job on such a cool night," Storm Lake coach John Brostad said. "The veterans and freshman Molly Daniels had great nights."

"Our concern is that we only scored in eight of the 19 events," Brostad added. "We knew coming in that our depth and lack of numbers would be a problem in the team scoring and it showed."
