Happy Birthday, Addy
Addison Dorenkamp’s last race on the Blue Oval as a high school athlete was one for the ages. Dorenkamp knocked two Hall of Fame runners from their lofty perches when she won the Class 4A race in 4:25.32. The West Des Moines Valley senior eclipsed Linn-Mar’s Stephanie Jenks, who went into the Hall of Fame earlier in the day, for the 4A and overall meet record. And she pushed aside Sioux City’s East Shelby Houlihan for the all-time best in the event, doing so on her 18th birthday. Dorenkamp finishes her prep career with three titles each in the 1500 and 3000 , just the third runner in state history to accomplish that. The five others all are in the Hall of Fame. Dorenkamp, also the all-time leader in the 1500, will run at Alabama next season.

Impressive Debut For Pella Christian Freshman
Pella Christian freshman Rachel Kacmarynski made quite a splash in her first state meet. Kacmarynski beat an experienced field in the Class 2A 100 in 12.61, running into a stiff headwind. She also helped her team win the sprint medley relay in a record-breaking time (1:46.05) earlier today, ran the opening leg on the first-place 4x400 unit to close out the meet  and ran on the winning 4x200 relay on Friday. Kacmarynski comes from athletic bloodlines. Her father Rich starred in football at Mallard High School and Central College and her mother Mindi played softball at Central.

Sellers Closes Out Career With Three More Titles
Panorama’s Jaidyn Sellers wrapped an impressive high school career by winning three more races this weekend, giving her 10 state titles in all. Sellers, competing in Class 1A this year after three seasons in 2A, started the day by winning her fourth straight championship in the 100, then added a fourth title in 200. She’s the only Iowa girl to win both events four times. She won a second championship in the 400 on Thursday and finished third in the high jump on Friday. She competed in 15 events at state in her career and never finished lower than fifth. She’ll continue her athletic career at Iowa – playing softball.

You Can Count On Kadence
A victory in the Class 1A 1500 capped off an impressive meet for Nashua-Plainfield junior Kadence Huck. Huck won that race in 4:42.13 for her third title of the weekend and eighth of her career. She also won the 800 in this meet, anchored the winning distance medley relay and finished second in the 400. She will go into her senior year with 12 medals in 12 events at state.

A Perfect Meet For Noelle Steines
Tipton’s Noelle Steines ran away with the victory in the Class 2A 1500 to complete a perfect state meet – four events, four state championships. Steines won the 1500 in 4:38.46 after collecting titles in the 800, 3000 and distance medley relay. She’s just the fifth runner to achieve that particular combination at state. A junior, Steines now has eight state championships in track, plus three in cross country.

Wahlert Catholic Increases Relay Haul
Dubuque Wahlert Catholic earned victories in the Class 4A sprint medley and 4x400 relays to run their championship total in baton events to 31, the most by any school. Senior Rylee Steffen was a key figure in the Golden Eagles’ recent success and anchored both relay wins today. She also finished second in the 200 and 400 this year and ran on five winning relays in all in her career, which included medals in all 16 events she ran at state

Spartans Nail Down Another Title
Pleasant Valley piled up 92 points to win the Class 4A team championship, giving the Spartans five titles in all. Also claiming crowns were ADM (3A), Van Meter (2A) and Saint Ansgar (1A). Dubuque Hempstead was the para champion.
