COLFAX — Just a week after competing in Colfax, the Elk Mound boys’ and girls’ track and field teams returned to Vikings’ territory to compete in one final tune-up prior to the Dunn-St. Croix Conference tournament which was held yesterday (Tuesday, May 17) in Glenwood City.
In last Tuesday’s Colfax Invitational, which featured 23 schools including several Division 2 squads, the Mounder boys finished seventh with 42 points while their female counterparts placed 16th after scoring 21 points. The top eight place winners in each event scored team points.
Senior Korbin Verdon led the boys with a pair of third-place finishes in the 100 and 200 meter dashes.
Freshman Grant Mueller scored points in four different events in the May 10 meet. Mueller finished fifth in the 110m high hurdles and the high jump, took seven in the long jump and was eighth in the triple jump.
Juniors Ian Hazen and Aiden Schiferl were fourth and sixth, respectively, in the 1,600m run.
Eighth-place finishes were turned in by freshman Brooks Burcaw in the 300m intermediate hurdles and junior Trae Schaefer in the 800m run.
On the girls’ side, junior Aleya Hadenfeldt and sophomore Lydia Levra scored 11 of their team’s 21 points. Levra placed third in the 400 meter dash while Hadenfeldt was fifth in the 100m and seventh in the 400m.
Ladysmith won the girls’ title with 86 points while Grantsburg claimed the top spot in the boys’ chase with 95 points just edging out Northwestern who tallied 92 points.
