The Dickinson Relays were run at UNI, Winfield-Mount Union came home with a third place finish in one of the events. Winfield Mount Union Boys Track and Field Head Coach Cody Wolfe says they took two up Andrew Lyle to run the mile and Wes Atkinson to run in the 60 meter hurdles and the high jump. In the 60 meter hurdles, Atkinson had the third fastest time in the prelims and third in the finals running 8.48.. Keep in mind there is no classifications so as a 1A, you are running against 2A’s, 3A’s, and 4A’s. Atkinson finished 10th in the high jump going 6-foot. Highland’s Jacob Tate finished 31st in the high jump. In the 1600, Andrew Lyle ended up 18th. Mount Pleasant’s Darian Cotton finished 13th in the 60 meter dash.
