The Only ‘Foot’ to Stand On

In an unsurprising event, the 2015 spring sports season began by literally and figuratively slipping. A typical Minnesota April ushered in snow, showers, and thus a host of event cancellations. For the week of Monday April 6, four of 30-plus events started, with only two completing as planned. Ironically, about the only appendage local sports stood on was Plainview-Elgin-Millville’s ‘Winged Foot’ track and field meet. The R-P/H and GMLOKS programs competed amidst seven other teams (the host Bulldogs, Byron, Stewartville, Lake City, Pine Island, W-K, Triton). The GMLOKS girls fared the best, finishing third to Byron and P-E-M. The R-P/H boys finished fourth to P-E-M, Stewartville, and Pine Island. The R-P/H girls finished sixth, the GMLOKS boys seventh.

Senior McKenzie Kirtz, GMLOKS’s lone returning state qualifier, spearheaded her squad’s attack. She won the 800 and 1,600-meter races, nipping Byron’s Taylor Kreitinger by less than two seconds in each (.10 seconds in the 800). GMLOKS relay teams were steady. The girls 4x200 (2nd, Jordyn Glynn/Sydney Bendtsen/Lauren Buchholtz/K. Kirtz), 4x100 (4th, Kaitlyn Kirtz/Lacey Schwartz/Corbyn Bendtsen/Marina Schwanke), 4x400 (4th, Buchholtz/M. Kirtz/Sam Siskow/S. Bendtsen), and 4x800 (4th, Andrea Mettler/Moriah Weiss/Skylar Cotton/Renee Lechner) squads all finished top four. The boys 4x100 (5th, Josh Bradley/Adam Koenigs/Tristan Harrison/Cody Krahn) and 4x400 (4th, Marvin Heimer/Maxwell Tapp/Harrison/Krahn) squads also scored team points. Members of the gal relay teams did their thing elsewhere, too. Sydney Bendtsen (200/Long Jump) had two second place finishes. Lauren Buchholtz was second in the 400 and sixth in the Long Jump. Jordyn Glynn (5th 400, 6th Triple Jump, 6th High Jump), an 8th grader, had three top six finishes. Lacey Schwartz (4th 100, 7th 200) had a pair of top seven finishes. Kaitlyn Kirtz was fifth in the 100. Peter Torkelson (3rd 800, 3rd 1,600, 8th 110-hurdles) and Dominiq Bouska (2nd Shot Put, 5th Discus) individually led the GMLOKS boys contingent.

The R-P-H boy’s squad was paced by sophomore Noah Carlson. The returning three-event state qualifier won two events, the Triple Jump and Long Jump, while taking third in the 200-meters. His 44’10” Triple Jump was just one inch short of last year’s state championship leap (44’11”). It was 22 ½ inches further than Carlson’s best state attempt a year ago. Noah’s 21’10” Long Jump was 11 inche .....
