Nashua-Plainfield’s Kadence Huck was well-decorated once again after her performances at the State Track and Field Championships in Des Moines.
Only a sophomore, Huck started her medal run by winning the Class 1A 400 meter run for the second straight year.
Huck also went on to win the 800 meters and was runner-up in the 1500 meters. She also helped the Huskies’ distance medley relay team finish fourth and to a second-place finish in the final team standings.
Nashua-Plainfield won the team title in 2022, when Huck won her first 400M and ran on the Huskies state title winning sprint medley and distance medley relay teams.
