Boys track It was a horrible day for outdoor activity of any kind last Friday, as the Paynesville Bulldog boys' track team tried their luck at the Section 6AA True Team track meet.

It was very cold and windy and on top of it all, it was a bit wet, too. This was surely not ideal conditions by any means.

The guys didn't do bad, though. As a team they placed sixth out of thirteen teams. Sartell won the meet for the tenth straight year.

Paynesville's Jeff Voss placed second in both hurdle races. This was awesome, considering in each event there were 26 participants.

Senior Josh Jones placed third in triple jump and sixth in long jump.

Luke Trees also made 5'10" in the high jump which put him in the top ten.
