IOWA CITY– The boys indoor track season opened last Thursday, March 6, with the Demon indoor meet hosted by Washington (Iowa) High School at the University of Iowa’s Recreation Center. The non-points earning exhibition match gave the men a chance to compete while snow still covered the ground.
Both Iowa City West High and Clear Creek Amana participated in the event with the Trojans’ 4x800-meter relay team (Daniel Gardarsson, Wynton Karanja, Noah Brase and Kaleb Greiner) taking home a secondplace finish in 8:16.75. The Clippers’ Jack Murray finished fourth in the 1600-meter run with a time of 4:46.22.
On Saturday, March 22, the Clippers will run in the WaMaC indoor meet at Cornell College in Mount Vernon. That meet starts at 2 p.m.
On Monday, March 17, the West High Trojans will head for the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls for the MVC Indoor meet with a 4:30 p.m. start time.
