The True Team track and field meets reward the overall team depth of participants. While the season-ending championship meets are oriented to acknowledge the success of the top-tier athletes, the True Team meets score each individual athlete.
The Farmington girls track and field team had a mix of performances at last week’s Class 3A, Section 1 True team meet. The Tigers placed sixth as a team with 586 combined points. Lakeville North won the team title with 987.50 points.
Farmington also featured four first-place finishes.
Nadia Lorencz got the Tigers started early by winning the 100-meter hurdles. Her time of 16.18 seconds broke her own school record.
She later set another school record — again breaking her own mark — in the long jump. She cleared 18 feet, 5.5 inches to take first place.
Lorencz added a second-place finish in the triple jump and was 10th in the pole vault.
Alyssa Parco garnered another top individual finish for Farmington by taking first in the 300 hurdles. Teammate Jessica Arey finished 14th.
Parco then teamed with Izzie Ferm, Erin Hickey and Maria Kiminski to win the 4x400 relay, finishing just three-tenths of a second short of setting another school record.
In the 4x200, Parco, Courtney Johnson, Ferm and Hickey teamed up and finished second.
Backing Lorencz’s second-place effort in the triple jump, Hickey placed fifth. Hickey was fourth in the long jump.
Kiminski crossed the line in fourth place in the individual 400.
Hannah Seitzinger placed seventh in the 800.
Mary Cline added an 11th place finish in the 100.
Jordan Bridges was 12th in high jump and Shelby Schillerstrom placed 12th in pole vault.
