Girls track: Lorencz turns in state-best performances for FHS

Last Friday's meet at Lakeville South was put together at the last minute, but the Farmington girls track team showed up well-prepared.

Shortly after last Thursday's home meet was rained out, coach Tom Hart signed the team up for an impromptu triangular with South and Eagan. There were no relays, and no team scores were kept, but the Tigers came away from the meet with six first-place finishes and a pair of new school records.

Junior Nadia Lorencz did the bulk of the damage, winning three events and breaking her own school records in two of them. She won the 100 hurdles in 14.99 seconds and covered 37-2 in the triple jump and 18-1 in the long jump. The hurdle time and triple jump distance both bested the previous school records she set last spring and all three performances rank as the best in the state this spring.

Senior Alyssa Parco added a pair of victories in the sprints. She won the 100 in 12.81, the fifth-fastest time in school history, and came back to claim the 200 in 26.22, the sixth-best clocking at FHS. Parco also placed fourth in the 400. Izzie Ferm won the 400 in 1:00.89 and placed third in both the 200 and long jump. Other top finishes came from Aly Grebner in the shot put (second), Destiny Schmitz in the high jump (third), Maria Kiminski in the 800 (fourth) and Megan Graham in the 400(fifth).
