The Tigers dazzled again on the big stage here Saturday at the Division III state track and field meet as the squad of senior Megan Etgen, sophomores Abigail Rabenstein and Michaela Rausch and freshman Morgan Freyhof broke their school record for the seventh time and placed third with a time of 49.91.

“I knew there was a lot of talent on that relay, but I would have never guessed in a million years they would do as well as they did,” said WL-Salem girls head coach Ann Vogel. “It goes to show you that it’s not always the fastest girls on the track, but the girls with the best chemistry. I’m very proud of them.”
