Junior jumper/sprinter Chris Pieper won the conference high jump championship with a personal-record 6 foot, 4 inches and placed second in long jump for the Caledonia/Spring Grove boys at the May 22 Three Rivers Conference Track & Field Meet at Elgin. Mitchell Reynolds, among 18 triple jumpers, tied with the best distance (personal-record 38 feet, 2 inches), but he lost the tiebreaker (second-best jump) to finish as runner-up. The boys’ highest-scoring event was the long jump with Pieper second and Reynolds sixth.
