"I knew I had my team to help me out. They got me a great lead. My legs just gave out at the end. We were lucky, but we got it."

The Decorah girls picked up a pair of runner-up finishes first taking second in the distance medley - while Katie Nimrod picked up the number 2 spot in the 3A 4-hundred hurdles

Coming in to the season knowing I had a chance at it, just having it in my mind that if I could go get it that'd be awesome. Much respect to last year, and I'm happy I did it this year."

In the shot put - 3A discus champ Tristan Wirfs of Mount Vernon picked up the throwing double - with a top distance of 60 feet, 1 and a quarter inches -

while Monticello - coming out of the second heat of the 2A distance medley - got a 1 minute, 50 second anchor leg from Matt Manternach to edge out runner-up Dike-New Hartford running in the 3rd and final heat -

"I didn't know I had that in me to be honest. I just kicked it as hard as I could the last 200. I knew I got out that first 400 at a good pace because I had a kid I was catching so I knew if I could finish I'd have a good time."
