High School Track: Iola Mustangs and Fillies

Cold, windy and wet conditions did not stop the Iola track and field team from having a successful start to the season.

The Iola girls finished second overall and finished just 13 points outside of first. The boys finished eighth overall.

That 13 points that separated the Fillies and Independence could’ve been made up. Iola’s 4×100 relay team consisting of Nora Gostner, Kassy Shelby, Ellie Carson and Madisyn Holloway finished first overall but got disqualified for making an exchange just a step outside of the exchange zone.
