Drew Feuk became the first New Prague High School athlete to win a state championship in boys track and field Saturday, claiming the crown in the 110-meter hurdles at the Minnesota State High School League Class AA meet at Hamline University in St. Paul.

Feuk also tied for eighth in the pole vault on Friday, clearing 13 feet, while teammate Tony Johnson took third in the long jump at 21-11 and eighth in the triple jump at 43-6.

The boys placed 12th as a team. Rosemount won the AA championship.
