In the high jump Gabe Sampson and Elijah Brittingham tied their PRs with 6 feet and 5 feet 10 inches respectively. Nate Blischke ran an impressive 9 second PR in the 1600m run (4:32.41) and just missed scoring by less than 1 second. Grant Heus also turned in a PR of 4:43.44 in the 1600m run. Max Finco ran an indoor best 2:03.37 in the 800m run, Caleb Anderson ran a PR 53.62 in the 400m dash, Lewis Huenink ran 6.74 in the 55m dash prelims and 6.71 in the semifinal round, but did not advance to the final.
The boys turned in many great performances including some solid splits in the two relays but the team had dropped baton and an injury that prevented either relay from scoring. The team is now focused on getting healthy and regrouping for the outdoor season.
