Jacob Carroll’s done it again. The Yellow Medicine East junior won his second straight meet on Monday night by cruising to victoy in Ortonville with a time of 16:35.
Carrol’s meet victory helped the boys secure a second place finish at the meet as they came up just five points behind meet champion Milbank and 35 points ahead of conference rival Morris.
“It was our goal to beat Morris,” said coach Jim Ford after the meet. “They beat us in the first meet of the year, but we’ve improved a heck of a lot and we thought we could get them.”
You can see the Sting and Carroll run this Thursday at YME’s annual home invitational. Varsity boys are set to start at 5:00 p.m. with varsity girls and junior high races to follow.
