The Ballard Invite is a real measuring stick for the Iowa Falls-Alden/AGWSR Cadet harriers. Split into two classes, it’s a chance to run with some of the best at similarly-sized schools while also seeing other 3A teams. Results and comparisons were mixed, but one thing remained clear.
Ellie Meyer won her fourth race in as many starts this season. Her win led the Cadet girls to fifth place as a squad. The IF-A/AGWSR boys missed the medals, finishing eighth in a field that featured three raked squads.
