Northern Valley Middle School Girls Compete at WKLL

The Northern Valley Middle School girls traveled to Logan to compete in the Western Kansas Liberty League (WKLL) 2022 Track Meet. The girls competed in some beautiful weather but not without a little wind and a rain delay. This was the first year to compete as one team (grades 6-8) and we knew there would be some tough competition, but the girls came together to score 99 points taking home a first-place plaque. Grinnell was right behind us with 94 points, Logan with 88, and Golden Plains with 83.

Audrey Bina has a great day with two gold medals in the long jump and triple jump and two silver medals in the 200m and 400m. Audrey’s triple jump of 33’1” set a new school record for the third time this season.
