GARDNER – Mackenzie Scholtz and her wheels were on full display Saturday at the Frontier League junior high track and field meet.

In the sprints, Scholtz ran a time of 13.72 seconds to distance herself from the pack in the 100 dash and also won the 200 in 28.27.

In the field events, Cain scored in her fourth event of the day as she was third in the high jump after she cleared 4 feet, 6 inches.

Jessamy Howison cleared 7-0 in the pole vault to also take third. Avery Graham scored points in the high jump (4-0) and pole vault (6-0) and finished sixth in both events
