Mega track meet at Sauk Rapids By Pat Garry, Staff writer Thirty-something guys' and gals' track teams competed at the Central Minnesota Mega Meet Saturday, May 4, at Sauk Rapids- Rice Middle School. Eden Valley- Watkins-Kimball boys' track and field coach Jason Mortenson knows the value of the mega meet competition. "As far as the mega meet goes, we only participate in this meet to prepare ourselves with great competition, both physically and mentally, as we head into our True Team, CMC and the sub- section meets. This really brings out our competitiveness and usually provides us with a bunch of personal bests because of the great competition." Girls' coach Gordy Schlangen was very pleased with whai he saw. "At the Mega Meet, the girls fought the weather and very tough competition. Many girls were right at their personal best times, heights, or distances, but it was really tough competition. So it was very hard to finish in the top 8 to score for the team. I really liked their effort!"

The squads captured second place in their respective divisions. Boys' coach Jason Mortenson is happy with the results and sees a promising season ahead. "Connor Wittenberg broke the school record in the 110- meter hurdles for Kimball! The team f'mished second to Maple Lake, again. Our team is getting stronger with many personal bests each meet and we are competing well with all the teams at the meets. Maple Lake is incredibly tough and will probably go to True Team State again this year. We have two more meets to prepare for the conference meet. We basically have our line-up ready, but need to Tme-tune a couple of events for the next two meets to see ifwe can better our chances." EV-W-K girls' coach Gordy Schlangen echoes Mortenson's sentiments. "At St. Johns, the girls' team had 11 different personal bests in their events. They did a great job and finished second to a tough Maple Lake team."
