West Central Area junior Annabelle Haarstad competed in the Class A Track and Field Meet this past Friday at Hamline University in St. Paul. Although she didn’t have as good a day as she did when she took second place in the Sectionals, Haarstad threw the discus 106’ 4”, which was good for 10th place.
“She might have been a little nervous, but coming off of her great Sectional showing, she proved she belonged at the State Meet,” said her coach Kyle Owings. “We still have her for another year, and with her dedication, she will be back.”
Owing said Haarstad is an outstanding athlete and is a pleasure to coach.
“She is so good at helping my younger throwers, and I appreciate that.”The coach said he has already gotten several calls from colleges interested in recruiting the WCA track and field star next year.
