Marble Falls girls had a strong showing at the Marble Falls Daybreak Rotary Mustang Relays Saturday at Mustang Stadium.

The varsity girls finished fifth overall in a strong field including Rouse, Cedar Park Austin Westlake and Round Rock Westwood.

“Overall I was pleased with all the performances for the girls track team,’’ Marble Falls coach Anthony Torns said.

Highlights for the girls included:

On Jesse Stephenson, “she has about a foot more I think she can clear but I was very pleased with the way she competed and pulling out the win.’’

On Kim Boni, “she had a big time PR in the mile she actually dropped 11 seconds off her best time.  She’s now number two in school history in that race. Kim give it her all in practice and it shows in meets, she is self motivated and inspired and that why she has improved so much this season.’’

On the 4x200 relay, “this is our strongest relay at this point, we were withot one of our best legs Naomi Pegues, we get them all in place I am sure we will have a shot at running 1:44 and that would give us a shot at getting to state.’’

Other PR’s: Natasha Villalobos: Varsity 200 Daijah Torns: Varsity 400, McKinley Birdwell: JV 400, Riley Ulbricht JV 200/LJ, JV 4x100 & 4x200.
