South’s Roesler runs nation's best 800 time this year

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Fargo South senior Laura Roesler took first place in the high school girls 800 meters special event Friday at the Howard Wood Dakota Relays.

Roesler finished the race in a time of 2 minutes, 5.76 seconds, running the best prep time in the nation this year, according to track Web site dyestat.com.

“A race like this with such good talent is all about strategy, it’s all about placement and all of that,” Roesler said.

The time was also a Howard Wood Field record – that includes collegiate times.
