By David Swartz
The Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire boys ran to a seventh-place finish at the 96th Estherville Relays on Thursday.
Jacob Conlon and teammate Eric Sundall had a photo finish in the 400-meter dash with Conlon edging Sundall to take first in 52.28 seconds while Sundall finished second in 53.64 seconds. Conlon also won the 800-meter run.
“The competition was very tough but we again continue to run well and lower our times,” said GT/RA coach David Peterson. “Both Jake and Eric are running at a very high level.”
The Titans return to action Monday at a North Union meet in Armstrong.
