They finished first or second in most of the meets they competed in that season. It remains to be seen whether the HCHS thinclads can stay at that level this season though. Coach Curt Bladt has a talented senior class to work with but there are several holes remaining to be filled. Depth won't be a bonus either with the fewest numbers out in many years, just 47. To compound matters, the conference is loaded with talent. "We had a few kids that didn't go out that could have helped us but the numbers don't really concern me," he said. "It's easier working with this number. Any return from the 400 and 800-meter relay teams that were among the top few in Southwest Iowa last year. Although half of those outstanding relays are missing, Coach Bladt hopes that Todd Gross will step in to fill one of the spots. The other will be filled by Duane Brus, Kenyon DeHaan or Cohen Johnson. All except Johnson are seniors. Another outstanding senior this season is Curt Schulte in the hurdle events. He qualified for the state meet in the l l0- meter hurdles and is a strong 400 hurdler as well. It won't be easy for Schulte to win meets this year despite his reputation in those events. Several quality hurdlers re- turn in the Hawkeye Eight. Bladt commented, "Curt should have a good year but it depends a lot on how much he works at it. There are a lot of good people in the hurdles this year so he can't expect to just show up and win." One school record holder will return to the lineup this spring. Shane Murphy sur- prised everyone with a 6'2-1/2" high jump effort last year that tied Dave Larsen's mark set in 1966. The only other record established last year was by graduated Bryan Tiller in the long jump (22'3"), now a member of the Drake track team. There aren't many more letterwinners returning for the Cyclones. The only others are seniors Tony Burger and Marty Stein and junior Chad Wageman. The team may have lost another letterman for the season as junior hurdler Cory Carter severely sprained an ankle in pre-season workouts. Burger will compete in the weight Koesters, Carin Rodenbom, Jenny Borden, Jenny Bruck, dulie Graeve, Jenny Schultz, dessl Kuhn, Jenny Chadwick, Tracy Feser; Back: Theresa Kloewer (mgr), Kelly Ohlinger (mgr), Klm McCutchen, Shellie GiUespie, Jeanna Rouhoff, Suzanne Mathiasen, Marcy Klein, Denise Wigness, Amy Graeve, Tricia Wegner, Michelle Rau, Sara Hemminger, Jennifer Peters, Kathi Funk, Theresa dacobs, Donna Voge, Miki Kloewer, Nlkld Schaben, Shannon McKinney, Coach Dave Lathrop, Coach Eldon McCall; Missing: Katie dohannsen, dulie Behrens, Becky Schechinger, Becky Scheel and Darci Zea. more and it seems like you're falling over each other." The weather hasn't been very coopera- tive either as the first meet of the season nears. The Cyclones are scheduled to run in a triangular at Carroll Kuemper on Tuesday but the team hasn't even been outside as of mid-week. "I could have told you this was going to happen way back in January when the weather was 70 degrees," chuckled Bladt. "We aren't really concerned about what happens in our first few meets. We hope to hit our stride in about the third week of the season." Sprint and hurdle events were the strong spots in the HCHS lineup a year ago and that shouldn't change a lot this year. Seniors Jason Moore and Todd Hansen The Harlan Community Cyclonette track team will have its largest roster in school history as nearly 60 are out for the sport this spring. Members of the team include, front, from left: Diana Froh, Tina Kenkel, Cindy Wingert, Joi Smith, Leslie Johnson, Jenny Smith, Dana Book, Stacy Smith, Geri Weihs, Vicki Tremel, Angle Bruck, Ann Goetz; Second row: Ginnie Carlisle, Brenda Hansen, Tanya Kleffman, Tammy Foxhoven, Kelly Buhman, Kathy Wegner, Shari Simdom, Kerry Foxhoven, Julia Slagle, Kara Selby, Michelle Spetman; Third row: Leann Hursey, Jeanna Gross, Charlotte Blum, Linda Herbst, Jill events along with newcomer Scott Baker. Stein and Wageman are two of a thin crop of distance runners. Wageman was the top cross country for HCHS last fall and will compete in the 2-mile this spring. The other runner Coach Bladt hopes to get some distance mileage out of is freshman Jason Cairney. As in the past few seasons, Glenwood is the team to beat in the Hawkeye Eight It will be tough for HCHS to repeat their runner-up finish of 1988 because Shenan- doah and Creston should put very strong teams on the track while CB Lewis Central has usually fielded a good squad, too. "Shenandoah is going to be one tough bunch," said Bladt. "They might not have the field event people to catch Glenwood but we know Shen's got sprinters and they won the state cross country meet last fall." The Cyclones open the season with Carroll Kuemper and Atlantic in a triangu- lax at Carroll Tuesday, weather permitting. Their first major meet is April 8 in the Denison Coed Relays. The Johnson Coed Relays are slated for Tuesday, April 18, at Merrill Field in Harlan.
