Boys score 215 in victory
The Paynesville tracksters had their second home meet of the year on Thursday in miserable weather. Even though the temperature was in the high 30s with strong winds, the boys' track team crushed its competition, winning the meet by more than 80 points. |
Despite the awful weather, the Dogs had some good performances from many athletes.
Senior Jesse Rien (pictured at left) was a double winner in the 800- and 1,600-meter races. Senior Josh Trees also was a double winner in the high jump and triple jump.
The Bulldogs swept the long jump with senior Ryan Whitcomb in first, senior Andy Jones in second, and sophomore Lee Fuchs-Thielen in third.
The Bulldogs' 3,200-meter relay - juniors Riley Flanders, Tommy Flannigan, Freddie Stock, and senior Scott Thompson - also took first, while the team's 1,600-meter relay and 800-meter relay took second and the 400-meter relay took third.
Junior Steve Mages took second in the 300-meter hurdles and third in the 110-meter hurdle race.
Other runner-up finishes for the Dogs were: senior Nic Glenz in the pole vault; junior Riley Flanders in the 800-meter run; senior Dan Pearson in the 3,200-meter run; junior Milan Virant in the 400-meter dash; and senior Jason Leyendecker in the discus. Leyen-decker threw a career best 113' 11" to take second.
Senior Adam Schaefer took third in the 100-meter dash.
The Bulldogs have their true team meet at Holdingford on Thursday, starting at 4 p.m.
