Paola junior Maggie Kauk takes flight during an attempt in the long jump. Kauk placed first in the event at the Class 4A state track meet. She also won medals in the triple jump, 200 and 4x100 relay.

PAOLA — The bigger the stage the better Maggie Kauk was for the Paola Lady Panther track and field program.

Kauk, a junior, saved her best for last. She ended the season with state medals in all four of her events, including a gold-medal performance in the long jump.
