Grundy Center spring sports update - 4/2/24

The Grundy Center track & field teams were scheduled to host a coed meet Tuesday, but it was cancelled due to weather.

Spartan girls Head Coach Todd Rohler on his early-season expectations.

"I want to get a gauge on where we're at and that's why it's nice with the early bird meets and even our own coed meet," Rohler says. "We're gonna let kids compete. Some of those kids that maybe won't get to run varsity live they're still gonna be able to get on the track to answer some questions for us. So like the first two weeks of the season, you know some things already going into the season, but it's a great place to start answering some questions about who the newcomers are and how they're gonna mesh with everyone. So that's my biggest hope, to just get some questions answered."

The Spartan girls will return to action Friday at South Hardin. The boys track & field team will host a boys meet Thursday.

Coming off team state titles, the Spartan golf teams were scheduled to join East Marshall in triangulars hosted by BCLUW that were postponed. Both teams will instead begin their seasons Thursday at Jesup.

It’ll be the second outdoor meet of the season for the Spartan boys, who had several first place finishes, including a team title, at last week’s meet at Belle Plaine.

Coming off team state titles, the Spartan golf teams will join East Marshall in triangulars hosted by BCLUW. The girls will look to make up for the graduation of last year’s top three golfers. Junior Leah Larson averaged 48.86 strokes per nine holes last year, and is the top returner.

The Spartan boys will be led by sophomore Judd Jirovsky, last year’s individual state champion, who enters with the best nine-hole average in Class 2A among returning golfers at 36.71.
