Cedar claims first track title of the season

Cedar Catholic’s Sean Kathol was off to a good start in last week’s 4×100-meter relay race at the

Hartington Community Complex flying around the corner in front of the pack. He held the lead until he

tripped and fell hard, while attempting to hand the baton to teammate Isaac Creamer.








HARTINGTON — The Cedar Catholic boys came out on top at the Cedar Catholic invite last week, edging Hartington-Newcastle by one point to earn the team title.
The girls also performed well, finishing second behind Hartington-Newcastle.
With a near 4×400 record and a strong 4×800 team, the Trojans easily took first, but were unable to earn the relay sweep.
As they led into the third leg of the 4×100 something happened. During the last handoff of the 4×100 meter relay, Cedar was leading as Sean Kathol went to hand the baton to Isaac Creamer. Kathol stumbled, though and crashed to the ground. The team was unable to finish the event.
