NASHUA – One is even stronger than the fall, another has discovered the ability to run individual sprints.

Any way you look at it, Clarksville had a very good outing by both its girls and boys track & field teams at the West Fork Early Bird meet hosted by Nashua-Plainfield High School.

Among the girls, freshman Kori Wedeking out-kicked West Fork junior Kenna Weaver who got the best of her at the state cross country meet, to win both the 3,000 and take a very close distance medley relay which were among some of the highlights for coach Brandon Zelle’s squad.

By getting the advantage in the individual race, Wedeking broke a 10-year old school record in the event, racing to 11 minutes, 21.13 seconds.
