Several area athletes were in action at the Drake Relays yesterday. Mid-Prairie’s 4×1 teams on both the girls and the boys side were probably the highlight in terms of area performances. Neither qualified for the finals but keeping in mind 80 teams are invited and they are the top team in the state, Mid-Prairie girls had the 21st fastest time in the prelims and the boys had the 28th fastest time. Looking at some of the other performances:
High Jump – Sammy Ellingson, Washington, tied for 11th 5’3″
4×4 – Washington 23rd fastest time in the prelims
4×1 – Mid Prairie 21st and Lone Tree 54th

800 Meter Run – Justin Hochstetler, Mid-Prairie, 11th 1:59
110 Meter High Hurdles – Wes Atkinson, Winfield-Mount Union 14th
4×1 – Mid-Prairie 28th, Washington 69th
Long Jump – Logan Klein, Sigourney, 21st 20’2″
