LqPV Invitational
The boys track team finished once again in first place as a team, almost 40 points ahead of second place.
“The kids had a great day,” said Head Coach Scott Jans. “The conditions for competing were as nice as it can get.  The teams are developing nicely. We have a lot of work to do, but we know what direction we are heading.”
Jacob Pederson was first in all three sprint events, as well as the triple jump. Jacob Carroll took second place in the 1600 against Jason Montonye, who was the State champion last year. Josh Hoernemann swept the weight events with a first in both shot put and discus.
The girls team finished third place overall, beat by LqPV and Morris. First place finishers for the girls were Ashely Balfany in the 100 hurdles with a time of 17.83 and Samantha Lecy in the high jump. Jordan Hinz had a 2:39.00 time in the 800 meter run, producing a second place finish. Cassie Weir came in second for the 1600 meter run and Chyanne Sand was second in the discus.

Boys Tennis

The Yellow Medicine East boys tennis team picked up their first win of the season in a strong match against the Wolverines.

The No. 1 doubles pairing of Cody Speh and Ammon Bennett lost their first set 3-6 before coming back to win with 6-3 and 6-4 sets. Miles Jensen and Cody Zimmer defeated Levi Sparks and Alex Spence at No. 3 doubles with a 7-5 tie breaking second set.
Similarly, Shane Nokleby had a long second set against Skyler Garmin, but ended up beating Garmin after a 12-10 tie breaker. Brandon Repsher and James DeJager defeated their counterparts at No. 1 and No. 4 singles handedly.
Weather permitting, the Sting will play next Monday at home in a makeup match against Minnewaska.
