SEWARD – Centennial hit the track for the first time this season Friday at the Bulldog Track & Field Challenge, where the Broncos got a boost from Savannah Horne. The sophomore sprinter collected a pair of wins on the track at Concordia, sparking a big day for Centennial as the Broncos racked up 47½ points to finish third.

The Broncos finished 2½ points clear of fourth-place Lincoln Lutheran. Arlington rolled to the team title with 86 points, 34 clear of runner-up Milford.

Horne turned in the fastest time in qualifying during the 60-meter dash, her first event of the day. She one-upped herself in the finals, breaking the tape in 8.13 seconds to set a new meet record by .01 seconds.

The sophomore added a second gold in the 200 later in the day, where she clocked in at 27.97 seconds.

Payne cleared 4-08 in the high jump and took ninth, while freshman Averie Stuhr finished 10th after clearing 4-06 but failing to pass the bar at 4-08.
