  • Redwood Valley Indoor Meet
    The Yellow Medicine East track and field team opened their season with a four-team indoor meet in Redwood Falls Thursday.
    The Sting finished at the bottom of both the girls and boys standings at the Redwood Valley Indoor Meet. For the girls, St. James won the meet with Redwood Valley, Canby/Minneota/Lincoln HI and YME following, respectively. On the boys side, host school Redwood Valley dominated with 114 team points. Meanwhile, St. James finished second, C/M/L placed third and YME rounded out the standings with a fourth place finish.
    The meet was highlighted, for the Sting, by two underclassmen.
    Sophomore Jacob Pederson picked up right where he left off with his freshman campaign; winning both the 200m and 400m sprints while running on the constricted indoor track. He also placed second in the long jump and third in the 60m sprint.
    Eighth-grader Amber Balfany captured the lone first place finish for the girls squad; winning the 60m sprint by six-hundredths of a second, beating St. James’s Devon Flohrs with a time of 8.70.
