As the snow is finally melted and warm weather is encroaching on us the 2011 North Tama Girls Track team gears up for another season. There are 6 returning letter winners this year Brittany Young, Leah Franklin, Kailey Kladivo, Brandianne Daub and Frankie Krienert. With only on senior, Young, the team is young. "Eleven of of the sixteen members are underclassmen." Coach John Daub then went on to say, " My main goal for all of the girls is to perform better at the end of the season than they did at the beginning of the season." Junior Kailey Kladivo is an "athlete to watch," says Daub. Kladivo, who has gone to state twice in her track and field career, placed 2nd last year in Class 1A high jump at the state meet. Kladivo jumped 5'5" which set a new school record at North Tama.
Brittany Young is the only senior on the team this year.
