ELC competes well at E’Hawk Relays


EMMETSBURG — On a cool, windy night, Estherville Lincoln Central competed well at the 2021 Clint Stille Relays in Emmetsburg on Tuesday with a third-place finish.

“Great effort tonight at Emmetsburg,” said ELC coach Jesse Nitchals. “Times were not going to be great but you could really see the boys working hard. It’s just great to get the opportunity to compete in a track meet. With this meet only being our third overall meet so far in the season, we’ll take any opportunity we can to get experience and practice to help prepare us.”

The coach highlighted the quartet of Daryl Jensen, Seth Busch, Matt Christensen, and Zack Anderson, who finished first in the sprint medley, 4x100, and 4x200 relays.

“They have had a great start to the season and have a chance to stay at the top of the district standings in all three relays,” said Nitchals. “Also, Nick Leonard looked good and finished second in the 110-meter hurdles. Parker Duitsman pushed through the wind and finished the 3200 in second place.”

ELC returns to action today at a meet hosted by North Union in Armstrong.
