The Ogilvie Lions track and field team sent two athletes to the Section 5A Tournament in May, wrapping up a 2019 season in which participants got the chance to gain varsity experience.
The tournament took place on Wednesday, May 29, at St. John’s University in Collegeville.
Ogilvie senior Lilly Lee took 12th place in the discus throw with a distance of 83 feet, 2 inches. Sophomore Alivia Sanborn finished ninth in the 1600 meter run with a personal best time of 5:46.48.
In 2018 the Lions sent seven athletes to sections. Lee finished third in the 3200m run, and Sanborn competed in the 800m race.
The team will lose six seniors to graduation this spring: Lee, Melissa Bartel, Brandee Bolz, Logan LeBeau, Brittany Peterson and Seri Ziegler.
