     Gabby Guilford won a conference individual title, and the Monticello High School girls track and field team finished seventh out of 14 teams at the River Valley Conference Meet.

     The meet was held in cool, cloudy conditions at Camanche High School.

     Cascade won the team title with 113 points, while Mid-Prairie was second with 76.5 and Anamosa placed third with 80.

     Monticello had seven top-five finishes at the meet, led by Guilford, who jumped 5-3 to win the conference high jump crown.

     The Panthers were fourth in three events: Leah Holub in the 100-meter dash, and the 4x800 and shuttle hurdle relay teams. In fifth were Payton Jaeger in the shot put, and the 4x100 and 4x400 relays.

     The team also double-scored in two events: Karle Kramer and Triniti Etzel were seventh and eighth, respectively, in both the 1,500 and 3,000.

     The Panthers will host the State Qualifying Meet Thursday, May 9, 4 p.m. at Dean Nelson Field. The top two in each event will automatically qualify for the May 16-18 state meet, and the next eight finishers statewide will earn at-large spots.
