Seward Lady Saint assistant basketball coach Caitlin Demarest won Liberal's leg of the International Pancake Day Race. She ran the race in a time of 64.3 seconds to win the 415 yard race down Lincoln Tuesday during Pancake Day. Rene Boaldin came in second and last year's winner Kaela Krueger was third. But this was most certainly Olney's year to win the friendly International Race. Devon Byrne broke the record by running the race in 56 seconds. She breaks the record held by Tosha Gallegos when she ran the race in 57.5 in 2009.
The win marks two straight for Olney and makes the overall series 36-27-1 in Liberal's favor.
