Lady Clippers open track season in Bloomington


BLOOMINGTON – The Amboy-LaMoille girls’ track team opened the season by participating in the Bloomington Lady Raider Invitational on March 2 at the Shirk Center in Bloomington.

Freshman Kylee Brown had an excellent beginning to her high school track & field career as she set a new Amboy girls’ indoor school record with a distance of 16-1 in the long jump.

“Kylee broke the AHS indoor school record on her first attempt in high school, a remarkable achievement,” said coach Bob Halberg. “It was a great start to the track season, especially considering that we have had only a couple of outdoor practices.”
