Girls’ Track Team Has Most Successful Year Ever The 1980 season was the best ever in the history of Prairie girls’ track. The girls worked very hard to top themselves from last year and proved they could do it by hitting new highs in several events. It started at the State Indoor where Prairie finished seventh, with Nancy Cisar being state champion for the second time in the 440 yard dash and getting second in the 300 yard dash. This was followed by several relays in which Prairie placed fairly high up each time. During the course of the season, several new school records were established. Nancy Cisar now holds the record in the 400 meter dash, the 400 meter hurdles, and the 100 meter dash. Freshman Angie Joens has the mark in the shot put. Two relay records were broken, by Sonya Schulz, Susann Lebsock, Sherry Houschild,and Nancy Cisar in the 440; and Ann Oldorf, Susann Lebsock, Dawn Roy,and Sonja Schulz in the 880. The highlight of the season was the state track meet, at which Prairie placed ninth. The 440 relay team came in fifth, and Nancy Cisar got second in the 400 meter hurdles, and a first in the 400 meter run . Her time in the latter event was the best of any runner in the state, in any class. Coach Roger Stigers was assisted by Tom Hoffmann and Emma Jo Fairlie, with help from student assistant Debbie Blaha. Team managers were John “ Bubba” Randles and Carrie Barker Roger said, “It was the most successful season Prairie Girls’ Track has ever had.” It was a great way for Coach Stigers to end his career at Prairie.
