Carlisle girls picked-up their third win in a row with a dominating victory over a strong 10-team field in the 2017 Wildcat Relays.  The Cats scored in all 19 events to pull off the victory despite resting key contributors in preparation for the Drake Relays over the next two days.  The community was able to honor seniors Agatha Beier, Taylor DuBois, Bailey Kurimski, Marissa Reed, Rylee Richards, and Summer Struve for their contributions to our program over the course of their careers. The highlight of the meet came when junior Brooke Kruse broke a 39-year old school record in the shot with her heave of 39 feet 2 inches.  This marks the fourth school record set by the Wildcats this spring.  Here are the remaining highlights that met our bronze, silver, or gold standards of performance:
