EMMETSBURG – Estherville Lincoln Central had four top finishes in at the Early Bird Meet hosted by Emmetsburg on Tuesday. Traditionally just a three-team meet with ELC, the E’Hawks and Spencer, North Union joined the group to make it a quadrangular meet.

“I think we had a successful first outdoor meet and I liked are overall team effort,” said ELC coach Dick Barrett.

Myles McDonald was part of two first-place finishes as he tied in the 100-meter dash for first in 11.64 seconds and also anchored the winning 4×100-meter relay. Teammates included Evan Olesen, Ryan McDonald and Robert Sheridan.

Jacob Heinrichs won the 800-meter run in 2:12.67 and anchored the winning sprint medley team. That also included Olesen, Ryan McDonald and Sheridan.

“Our 4×100 had a good early season time and we’re hopeful we can qualify for the Drake Relays again this year,” said Barrett.

ELC’s long distance runners also performed well, placing second and third in the 1600 and 3200-meter runs. Kevin Dong finished second in the 1600 while Taylor Myers placed third. The duo switched positions in the 3200 with Myers placing second and Dong placing third.

Briar Rowley finished second in the long jump.

“Briar had a nice jump and Riley Theesfeld gave a good account in two middle distance races,” said Barrett.

ELC travels to Cherokee today.
