Titans take third in conference track meet

The girls and boys track teams each landed in third place in the Minnesota River Conference track meet on Tuesday, May 25 in Le Sueur.

The girls earned 60 points behind Belle Plaine’s winning total of 277 points, and second place Sibley East’s 98 points. Behind TCU were Southwest Christian, fourth, Norwood-

Young America, fifth, Mayer Lutheran 6th, and Le Sueur-Henderson 7th.

The boys earned 80 points behind first place Belle Plaine’s 189, and second-place Sibley East’s 188 points. Behind TCU were Norwood-Young America with 44 points, Mayer Lutheran with 43 points, Le Sueur-Henderson with 38 points, and Southwest Christian with 21 points.

“TCU finished second with a time of 1:36.61. Sibley East edged them by .07 of a second. Belle Plaine finished third with a time of 1:36.66 in a true photo finish for the top three spots.”

The coach said Dylan Thompson had a great day pole vaulting.
