Paynesville Press - April 10, 2002

Dogs take five firsts and win indoor meet

By Andy Jones

The Paynesville Bulldogs boys' track team had their final indoor meet on Monday, April 1. It was a good night for the Bulldogs, who won the meet by 50 points.

Senior Josh Trees scored big points for the Dogs, winning all three of his events: the triple jump, the high jump, and the 55-meter dash.

Senior Ryan Whitcomb also did well for the Bulldogs, winning the long jump and taking second in the 55-meter dash.

Senior Jesse Rien easily won the 3,200-meter run and took second in a very close 1,600-meter race. Teammate Dan Pearson, also a senior, took second in the 3,200-meter run as well.

Junior Steve Mages took second in the 55-meter hurdles. Junior Tommy Flannigan took second in the 800-meter run. Senior Andrew Jones took second in the triple jump. And eighth grader Aaron Bachman moved up to the varsity pole vault and took second place, clearing a height of ten feet.

The Bulldogs scored 150.5 points in the eight-team meet, beating runner-up Hinckley-Finlayson (100) by 50 points and third-place Rocori (97) by 53.

The Bulldogs' home meet - scheduled for Monday, April 8 - has been moved to Monday, April 15, due to the snowy spring. The Bulldogs are scheduled to have their first outdoor at Annandale on Thursday, April 11, starting at 4 p.m.
