Members of the Lake Mills girls’ track and field team qualified for the Drake Relays in two events last week.

The competition will take place from Thursday through Saturday at Drake Stadium in Des Moines.

Avery Eastvold qualified in the high jump, and she, along with Brittany Leibeg, Regan Eastvold and Makenzie Budach, qualified in the 4×100 relay.

This will be Avery Eastvold’s third time competing at Drake. She will compete at 4:30 p.m. Thursday.

The relay team will compete in the prelims at 9:45 a.m. Saturday.

“Very exciting that the girls were able to get two events qualified for such a major event such as the Drake Relays,” coach Skyler Ahrens said.
“We have conversations that track meets and life is more enjoyable with more people. This year that conversation is a reality as the 4×100 (Brittany Leibeg, Regan Eastvold, Makenzie Budach and Avery Eastvold) were able to qualify as well. It will be a bit of a chaotic week for the girls, but this will be something they will remember for a long time.”
