Boy tracksters take second in conference

This article submitted by Joshua Jones on 5/19/99.

High jump Paynesville hosted the West Central Conference North track meet last Thursday, May 13.

Though there was bad weather all week, Thursday's meet had favorable weather for a track meet.

Five Paynesville boys made the All-Conference team. In order to be All-Conference, you must place first or second in an event.

All-Conference members were Jeff Voss, Josh Jones, Luke Trees, Josh Bork, and Steve Flint.

Jeff Voss placed first in both hurdle races and second in the pole vault.

Josh Jones placed second in both the long jump and the triple jump.

Luke Trees took second in the high jump.

Josh Bork grabbed second place in the discus.

Steve Flint won the shot put with a throw of 44' 9.25".

All competitors did very well at the conference meet and deserve a pat on the back.

Paynesville tried to win the meet but fell short to a very tough Litchfield team, 172-157.

Congratulations on second place and a job well done!
