Wykon girls take first at Norway Invitational

IRON RIVER—Showing no signs of rust, West Iron County’s girls track team raced back to action April 23 by rocketing to first place at the Niagara Invitational.
    It was the team’s first meet since a meet inside the Superior Dome on April 15. A scheduled April 21 outdoor meet at Lakeland High School in Woodruff, Wis., was called off because of cold, wet weather.
    At Niagara, the Wykons wound up with 131 points to claim team honors. Norway was second at 91, and Iron Mountain claimed third at 86.
    Elizabeth Pellizzer notched two of the Wykons’ seven first places, winning the 400 (1 minute, 5.17 seconds) and the 200 (28.83).
    Other Wykon firsts came from Victoria Harris in the 3200 (12:46.17), Sydnie Mazurek in long jump (13 feet, 10.75 inches), Keeley Nolingberg in shot put (31-5) and the 3200 and 1600 relay teams (11:24.17 and 4:43.58, respectively). Erin Angeli, Sydney Berutti and Harris ran in both winning relays.
    Earning second place were Angeli in the 800 and Mazurek in the triple jump. Thirds went to Mazurek in the 300 low hurdles, Emika Anderson in shot put and Victoria Maloney in high jump (tied with two others).
