Brooke Reuter, a freshman at Savage High School, broke two new records and tied an additional record for her school.
At the Wibaux Invitational track meet in Glendive, she placed 1st in the 100M, setting a new school record of 12.99 and qualifying for state (the old record was Jessica Swisse 13.13 in 2003). She also placed 1st in the 400M, setting a new school record at 60.15. (the old record was Karen Etzel 62.23 in 1981).
Reuter placed 1st in the 200M tying the school record at 27.00 (held by Iris Krack, 1998). She also qualified for state, taking 1st place in the triple jump jumping 33' 7.5".
"For the track meet my main focus was on the 400. I wanted to break the school record and qualify for State in it, but as the day went on, I broke other records and qualified in other events. Which was crazy to me," said Reuter.
When asked why she thinks she performed so well, she responded, "The week before the meet I worked on the little things. Like block work, got in a little more shape, and I had my goal set and knew what I wanted - to break some school records."
Reuter has been competing in track for the past five years. In grade school, she competed in the 50M, 100M, 200M, 400M, long jump, and triple jump. In high school, she has competed in the 100M, 200M, 400M, long jump, and triple jump.
Her favorite thing about competing in track is meeting new people, racing, and the joy of winning. She said, "I like seeing what hard work can accomplish. "
Her future goal for the 2021 track season is to set personal records for every meet, qualify in the 400M, 200M, long jump, and set more school records.
