Fergus Falls Girls Track and Field (Season Preview)

By Craig Olson 04/09/2024, 2:30pm CDT

Expectations are high for the Fergus Falls girls’ track and field team entering the 2014 season.  “We had a very young team last year and watching them show amazing growth and buy in on what they can accomplish was the biggest highlight of the season,” shared Head Coach Niki Welde.  “We really stress the importance of self-improvement in events and as an Otter.  We have goals of reaching the state meet in many area.  The hard work that these girls are willing to put in, shows us that they have bought into the fact that they can reach that goal.”


Alexandria (199), Brainerd (75.5) and Willmar (69) finished 1-2-3 at the Central Lakes Conference Girls Indoor Track and Field Meet on Saturday.  Rocori (67) was fourth and Fergus Falls (63.5) came in fifth.  Sartell (55.5), Sauk Rapids-Rice (28.5), St. Cloud Tech (16) and St. Cloud Apollo (10) rounded out the team scoring.

“The Otters brought it back indoors for the CLC Indoor Championship to conclude a full week of Track and Field meets,” said Fergus Falls Head Coach Niki Welde.  “I could not be more pleased with the performances that we saw today.  We knew the kids would be a bit fatigued, but the amount of season bests shows just how strong this team is.  We host the Otter invite on Tuesday and the weather looks to be cooperating.  Come out to watch this amazing team!”
