DES MOINES -- The West Burlington-Notre Dame boys track and field program has a long and storied history when it comes to the 100-meter dash.

From Rod Storch to Mike Pope to David Wall to Isaiah Trousil to Jax Lamm to Jack Riley, the Falcons' tradition has stood the test of time.

Add sophomore Landry Haberichter to that list. Haberichter, a sophomore at Notre Dame, finished 16th overall in the 100 in 11.36 seconds on a windy, chilly, wet Friday at the Drake Relays at Drake Stadium.

While it wasn't the time or placing Haberichter was hoping for, it was the second-fastest time by Class 2A runners in the field. nd gave him valuable experience on the blue oval before the state meet in three weeks.

"It was nerve wracking at first, but I settled in and realized I have done this numerous times," Haberichter said. "It's definitely not ideal conditions to be running in -- 40s and wind. I wish I could have done better, but there's not much I can do about it."

Only Brody Cullin of Shenandoah, who was 14th in 11.31, was ahead of Haberichter among the 2A runners.

For Haberichter, who helped Notre Dame reach the Class 1A state baseball tournament last summer, it was a milestone mark.

Haberichter is not only continuing the WB-ND tradition of great sprinters, but also upholding the family name.

Haberichter is the great-grandson of legendary Southeastern Community College men's basketball coach Lloyd Haberichter.

Landry's father, Kenton Haberichter, was a multi-sport standout at Notre Dame in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

"Mr. (WB-ND coach Corey) Lamm is a great coach. He had us working hard in the offseason. I want to follow in Jack's footsteps. He was a great guy last year," Haberichter said of Jack Riley, who finished 12th at last year's Drake Relays in the 100. "I'm blessed. I really am. This was my dream. Last year, I came up here with the 4x100 team and got to experience it as an alternate. I love the atmosphere. It's a dream running here."
