ELDRIDGE — Erica Loussaert won two individual events and anchored a runner-up finish in the shuttle hurdle relay to propel North Scott’s girls track and field team to second place Monday at its home invitational.
The meet was originally slated for last Thursday, but inclement weather pushed it back.
With six teams in the field, Dubuque Hempstead compiled 180 points to stave off North Scott by 22 points for the team title. Bettendorf was third with 133 points and Davenport Central took fourth with 72.
Hempstead claimed three of the four field event titles along with the 100, 400 and 3,000.
Loussaert prevailed in the 100 hurdles in 15.63 seconds and won the high jump with a leap of 5 feet, 2 inches. North Scott’s Presley Case (800 meters) and Jessica Junker (400 hurdles) also tallied victories.
Bettendorf dominated the relays, winning all of them except the 400 relay. The Bulldogs’ Trinity Borland, Jenna Nickles, Breanna Vermeer and Sydney Spranger ran a season-best 9:55.02 to capture the 3,200 relay.
Alli Wroblewski anchored the victorious 800 and 1,600 relays. Erin McQuillen ran on the 800, 1,600 and sprint medley relay victories. Bettendorf’s Olivia Lewis won the 200 in 28.47 seconds and Borland secured a win in the 1,500 in 5:05.55.
