Indoor meet helps prepare for outdoor opener

Swedes travel to Ogallala Saturday.

KEARNEY—With more of a full squad competing at the Kearney High School Indoor Invite on Friday, the Swede boys have an even better idea than before what kind of talent they have.

Coach Steve Reeves said many encouraging things came out of the second indoor meet of the spring.

“The jumpers performed well,” he said. “That’s an area we’re showing improvement and it’s an area I think we can be successful.”

Reeves said the hurdlers did well despite minimal practice and a gold medal by the non-traditional 4x160 relay is an indicator of potential for the 4x100 outdoor sprint relay.

“We had some very encouraging performances,” Reeves said. “We also found some areas where we are going to need to prepare better if the kids are going to get where they want to be.”

Senior Tannor Mroczek improved his time in the 55-meter dash from 6.72 seconds last week to 6.68 seconds this meet placing second. Reeves said it will be good for Mroczek to get outside for a full 100-meter race.

Reeves was also pleased with senior Dillon McMichael’s personal best performance in the pole vault.
