Laker athletes in State Hershey's track meet

The Minnesota State Hershey Track and Field meet was held Saturday, June 23, at Gustavus Adolphus College, with 16 local athletes competing in the different age divisions.

Each participant had to place in the top four in the District 7 meet, which was held in Detroit Lakes Tuesday, June 12.

Brady Labine won the 13-14 boys' division standing long jump with an 8-2.5 distance and now has a chance to qualify for the National Hershey Meet in Hershey, Pa., in August.

He will be notified later this month if he has met the national standard.

The 9-10 girls' Detroit Lakes/Breckenridge 4x100 relay team finished second with a time of 1:09.40, while Emily Larson was second in the 100-meter dash at 14.90 in the 11-12 girls' division.

The 4x100 13-14 year old girls' team of Elizabeth Lembke, Hannah Rhodes, Leah Chavez and Naomi Larson finished as silver-winners with a time of 58.29.

The 11-12 boys' 4x100 squad of Easton Meier, Cole Metelak, Reed Mace and Max Gunderson were second with a 1:02.23.
