YMCA Team Idaho ‘C’ wins All-Idaho girls’ 4×200 relay at 2015 Simplot Games
Pocatello, Idaho – YMCA Team Idaho ‘C’, from Boise, wins the all-Idaho girls’ 4×200 relay at the 2015 Simplot Games in Pocatello with a time of 1:47.36.
Ally Miran, junior, Koblie Sims, senior, Jordan Morris, senior, and Olivia Elwer, sophomore, began practicing as a team 10 minutes before the race.
“The win feels good,” said Morris. “We were alternates for the team, and we were able to pull it together.”
Miran ran the first leg, then Sims, Morris, and lastly Elwer. Elwer said running the last leg was nerve racking, but the team gave her a good lead.
More than 2,000 athletes have come from across the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Australia to participate in the 37th annual Simplot Games. Simplot Games remains the nation’s premier high school indoor track and field event. Sponsored by the J.R.
