Midgets run well at Spirit Lake

By Staff | Apr 12, 2017

SPIRIT LAKE – The Estherville Lincoln Central boys had several outstanding efforts to place second at the Spirit Lake Co-Ed Meet on Tuesday as the Midgets finished with 129 points.

“I’m very pleased with the good overall team effort from top to bottom,” said ELC coach Dick Barrett. “We had a lot of season and career best times. We had outstanding performances in both sprint medleys, Briar Rowley winning the long jump, Brian Egeland’s throw in the shot put and the career best times of Taylor Myers and Kevin Dong in the 3200.”

The ELC quartet of Ryan McDonald, Evan Olesen, Robert Sheridan and Myles McDonald won both the 4×100 and 4×200 relays. Rowley had a career-best leap of 19 feet, 3 inches in the long jump. Egeland threw a best 46 feet 3/14 inches in the shot put.

Myers raced from beyond teammate Kevin Dong and Spirit Lake’s Aidan Bauermeister to win that race by six seconds while Dong placed third.

ELC will host the 96th running of the Estherville Relays at 5 p.m., today. The event is billed as the second oldest consecutive running relays west of the Mississippi.
