Last year's seniors will be missed. Dan Johnson was the only senior last year, but was one of the best leaders ever to be in track for Paynesville.
On Saturday, March 20, Paynesville traveled to St. Cloud State University for their first indoor meet of the season.
The Bulldogs competed against 16 other teams, most of whom were much larger than Paynesville. So there was some very good competition.
Highlights of the meet included Luke Trees winning the high jump, Clayton Lang taking second in the 3,200-meter run and Troy Wendlandt taking fourth in the 55-meter hurdles.
At press time, individual results were not available.
The Bulldogs are looking forward to another great season.
Their next meet will be another indoor meet on Friday, March 26, at St. John's University.
