Yoder competes at state track meet

Sophomore Suzanna Yoder finished her season with a lifetime best time in the 400 meter dash at the State meet in Des Moines Thursday. Yoder placed thirteenth with a time of 1:02.55 in the one-lap race.  One week earlier Yoder recorded a personal best time of 1:03.99 at the state qualifier meet in Wayland to earn a lane at the state meet.  This was the twenty-first fastest time out of twenty-four qualifiers.  “It was great to see Suzanna run the best 400 of her career at the state meet.  She dropped her time by a second and a half and moved up eight places above her seed.  Suzanna has worked hard to race this fast.  Competing well at the state meet was a great way to end her season.”
