The Ankeny Centennial boys’ track team made the short trip to Ames on Tuesday to compete in the ISU Indoor Meet at the Lied Athletic Recreation Center.
Due to spring break, the Jaguars were missing many of their key athletes. But they still turned in some solid performances.
“It was nice to see Avery Gates post a competitive time in the 60-meter dash (7.28 seconds) and take sixth (place),” said Centennial coach Nate Smith. “And Curt Peters looked strong in the 3,200. He ran the second-best time of his career (10:39.28).”
It was the third and final indoor meet for Centennial, which will now have two weeks to prepare for the start of the outdoor season. The Jaguars will compete in the Nevada Invitational on March 27.
“We got a good look at some underclassmen,” Smith said. “Now we’re looking forward to going outdoors.”
