Bulldog boys easily win eight-team track invitational


Jonny Weinrich helped run and jump Plainview-Elgin-Millville into familiar territory Tuesday, as it finished atop a large track and field invitational in Plainview.

Plainview, for years a track and field power, now is likely even stronger after having added Elgin-Millville to its school. Weinrich and the Bulldogs scored 182 points to win the eight-team meet. In second place was Stewartville with 96.5.

Weinrich landed first in the 200-meter dash (23.71) and the long jump (20-feet-2). P-E-M also got a big effort from its relay teams, winning the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 relays.

Dover-Eyota/St. Charles was the team champion in the seven-team P-E-M girls invitational. DESC scored 112 points, while P-E-M was second with 104.


DESC was led by a pair of first places from Becca Lee. She won the 100 hurdles (17.03) and the 300 hurdles (49.67).

  • The Rochester Century boys track team won a triangular meet in Owatonna. The Panthers scored 83 points, with Owatonna second with 58 and Rochester Mayo third with 45.

Century got another big meet from Aalix Dydell. The senior was first in the triple jump (41-10) and first in the high jump (6 feet).
