Published 12:00 am Tuesday, April 15, 2003

The Grand Meadow/LeRoy-Ostrander/Southland girls' track team made considerable strides one day after its season-opening meet. GMLOS finished third out of four at Rushford-Peterson Friday with times and distances already improved from Thursday's trip to Kasson.

Ashton May paced the squad with a pair of first-place finishes, winning the 200- and 400-meter races. She also garnered second in the triple jump and was on the second-placed 4×200-meter relay team.

Rebecca Stier showed off her strength with a second-place finish in the shot put and a third-place result in the discus. Her runner-up effort of 30 feet, 7 1/2 inches in the shot put was a new personal best.
