April 21 at Benson

The Minnewaska Track & Field team was in Benson on Thursday, the lone nice day of the week. The Lakers made the most of it, getting a first place finish from the girls and a second place finish from the boys in the seven-team fields.

The girls’ team was dominant, winning 12 of the 18 events, with multiple point winners in nearly every event.

The relay teams had a particularly good day, winning all four events. 

Emma Kovarik was a winner in two events, the 300 hurdles and the triple jump. 

The boys had a solid meet, finishing second to Morris. The Lakers had two first-place finishes, Noah Danielson in the high jump and the 4 x 800 relay team, to go along with six second-place finishes.

If the weather cooperates the track & field team hopes to compete twice during the week. On Tuesday the team will travel to Barnesville. Thursday will have the Lakers in Sauk Centre.
