Track teams win at Lewiston


Fri, Apr 25th, 2014
Posted in All Sports

For the second straight week, all four county track and field teams participated in the same meet. Two programs walked away with respective first place finishes. Nine days after Chatfield’s boys won the Chatfield invite, R-P/H’s boys and L/FC/M-C’s girls each notched top honors at the Lewiston-Altura Invite. L/FC/M-C’s boys also took second. The nine teams competing (R-P/H, L/FC/M-C, Chatfield, Kingsland, L-A, D-E, W-K, St. Charles, C-SG) braved a cold winter Thursday afternoon where the base word sweat was used, but only to describe clothing taken often immediately pre-event, not the look of the athletes post-event.

The Lanesboro et al girls’ contingent narrowly bested Dover-Eyota 116 to 114. L/FC/M-C used good event-balance. They were strong in the relay events. The 4x200 (Cassidy Ruud/Sara Vettleson-Trutza/Paige Bennett/Rachel Eversole) and 4x800 (P. Bennett/Leah Ruen/Alyssa Gathje/Kendyl Bennett) teams each took first. The 4x400 team (K. Bennett/Gathje/Kenzie Broadwater/P. Bennett) finished second. The latter two squads are comprised of all freshmen. Twin magic was in effect. If a Bennett twin were in an event, L/FC/M-C took either first or second. Kendyl also won the individual 400-meters. The Fal-Bur-Coug’s also got big points in the throw events courtesy of Olivia Haug. The junior won both the discus and shot put competitions. Bailey Ruen (2nd 1600, 3rd 800), Kiera Olson (1st 3200), and Leah Ruen (3rd 3200), again all freshman or younger, supplied points in the distance events. Broadwater (2nd 200, 3rd Long Jump, 6th 100), Vetttleson-Trutza (5th 400), Ruud (6th 400), and Eversole (5th 100-hurdles and 300-hurdles) scored team points elsewhere.

Behind L/FC/M-C and D-E was R-P/H (100) and Chatfield (81). Ashley Agrimson and Jordan Honken led the Tro-Canes from the field events. Agrimson won the High Jump and Long Jump. Honken won the Pole Vault. Anna Sweet (100), Elizabeth Loken (Discus), Olivia Hoff (100-hurdles), and the 4x100 team (Kenzie Ness, Agrimson, Megan Holien, Sweet) added second place finishes. The frosh Agrimson also finished fourth in the 100, giving her four top four finishes. Chatfield’s relays won those FC/L/M-C did not, the 4x100 (Ashley Baker/Maddy Kammer/Mikaela Bray/Autum Erickson) and 4x400 (Baker/Nicole Peterson/Maddie Talamantes/Kammer). Erickson was first place three for three. She won the 100 and 200 as well. Talamantes won the 300-hurdles. Baker added a couple top five’s (3rd 100, .....
