EMMETSBURG – The Estherville Lincoln Central Boys Track Team opened the season at the Emmetsburg Early Bird Meet on Tuesday.

The Midgets came away with a couple of top finishes by Joe Heinrichs as he won the 800-meter and 1600-meter races. Lee Christensen also had a strong meet as he finished second in the 1600 and 3200 races while Rodrick Fuller finished third in the 800-meter run.

“I thought Joe had an outstanding meet and Lee had a strong night running three races including the two long events,” said ELC coach Dick Barrett. “A couple of relays-the 4×200 and the medley-performed better than I expected.”

Both those relays finished second as did the 4×400.

Dan Christensen finished second in the long jump while Chase Bonner took second in the shot put.

“We got off to a slow start,” said Barrett. “The kids may have been nervous, it being the first outdoor meet of the year, but once we got going, I was pleased with the last two-thirds of the meet.”

Barrett said the results from Tuesday provide him with some help in placing the athletes in events where they can perform their best.
