The full list of qualifiers for the Drake relay’s for the girls has been released.

Here are the qualifiers from Southeast Iowa.

From Washington ,Sammy Ellingson in the high Jump, and the girl’s 4×100 meter relay.

From Mid-Prairie, the 4×100 meter relay.

From Highland, Sam Dutton in the high jump.

From Lone Tree, Madelyn Flemr in the 100 meter dash.

From Columbus Junction, the 4×100 meter relay.

From Winfield Mt. Union, the shuttle hurdle relay, and last years class 1A state champion Cassie Kingery.

WMU head track and field coach Allyson McCarty said Kingery is higher than she was last year, and has battled some adversity, but could bust out a good run at Drake.

“[We] still haven’t really touched on her real potential, she’s been fighting an illness, and hasn’t run her best time yet, so I’m hoping that by the end of this week or when we head up to the Drake relays that she kind of picks it up and taps into that, and brings down that time a little bit, but I think she has the potential to run a good time,” McCarty said.

Kingery will be the first event featuring Southeast Iowa with the 100 meter hurdles at 8 AM on Friday.
