    PLATTEVILLE – Belmont senior Kailee Kamps and Black Hawk sophomore Jen Wellnitz did everything they could to keep their teams in the hunt for a conference championship, but neither individual could match the depth of the River Ridge team.
    The Timberwolves won three events, placed competitors in all but one event and had multi-placewinners in eight different events to take home the girls’ conference title with 137 points at the 2012 Six Rivers Conference Track and Field Meet held at UW-Platteville on Monday, May 14.
    Belmont pulled in second with 100 points, while Black Hawk tied with Benton/Scales Mound for third-place with 92 points. Shullsburg was ninth with two points.
    Kamps became a three-time conference champion in the discus with a winning toss of 127’4” and a two-time champ in the shot put with a top heave of 44’2”, while adding a seventh-place finish in the 200-meter dash in 29.49 seconds and joining with freshmen teammates Keegan Kamps, Jannie deHaan and Sara Schmidt to place fourth in the 4x200-meter relay in 2:02.25.
    Ke. Kamps added a second in the discus (98’1”) and a third in the shot put (32’5.25”). Senior Amanda Adams placed second in the 300-meter low hurdles (48.6) and the high jump (4’8”), and junior Cassie McCarthy was second in the 100 high hurdles (17.32) for the Braves.
