The Kearney boys and girls each won their side of the A3 district track and field meet with ease on Wednesday at Kearney High School, both the new and old schools.

Rains forced the throwing events back to Joe Greeno field, the home of Bearcat track and field before the new digs were built.

Ella Godfrey got a winning shot for the Bearcats by going 37 feet, 9.5 inches on her very first throw.

Back at the new facility, Caleb Claussen did a number on his personal record by hitting 21 feet, 10.5 inches and winning the boys long jump.

The state track and field meet is scheduled for May 19-20 at Omaha Burke High School.
