PCHS track team seeks funds to attend nationals

Published 6:28 pm Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Cathy Elliot approached the Polk County Board of Commissioners Monday, March 5 in Sunny View, asking the community for donations for members of the Polk County High School girls’ indoor track team to attend the New Balance Indoor Nationals Emerging Elite to be held at the armory in New York this weekend. The girls 4×400 relay team, consisting of Rebecca Elliott, Autumn Miller, Casey McDowell and Mary Kate Christiansen, qualified for the national meet. Cathy Elliot told commissioners  no one from Polk County High School has qualified for nationals since Karen Godlock qualified in 1993. The team has raised $1,970 so far from the community and is still approximately $700 short. Elliot said anyone who wants to help can write checks to PCHS track and drop them off at the high school office this week. (photo by Leah Justice)
