Lady Longhorns dominate at Cambridge Invitational

    As more snow was expected this week, Lady Longhorn Coach Troy Hauxwell is still waiting for a “normal” meet.
    Coming off just their second meet of the season Monday in Cambridge, question marks were already out there if there will be a meet this weekend in Sutherland.
    No time to dwell on that, however.
    “No. 1, we were happy to compete Monday,” Hauxwell said.
    “If you had told me earlier that we’d have the same number of meets as the junior high at this time, I wouldn’t have believed it,” he said.
    It’s important to have a meet with both prelims and finals so athletes can get used to the recovery times, he said.
    That hasn’t happened yet.
    Despite that, Chase County’s girls did pretty well on Monday at a meet with smaller schools.
    Chase County won the team title, bypassing second place Cambridge by 142 points.
    Runners Adelaide Maxwell and Mallie McNair, both earning four golds at the meet, were co-winners of the meet’s Outstanding Female Athlete Award.
