Jackson shines for Frazee tracksters

There's another Jackson snagging first-place finishes this year for the Frazee boys' track and field team.

With older brother Skyler moving onto to the collegiate level, the younger Forrest Jackson is now picking up where his elder sibling left off.

Forrest Jackson won three events Friday in the Perham Invitational, taking top honors in the 100-meter dash (11.23), the 200 (23.30) and the long jump (19-06).

"Forrest looked very good in the spring and Cody Nordquist ran very well in the hurdles, especially for a ninth grader," said Frazee head boys' coach Brian Tangen.

Nordquist finished fourth in the 11 hurdles with a time of 17.55 and sixth in the 300 hurdles at 45.90.

The 4x100 team of Nordquist, Jason Laine, Dakota Zick and Jackson finished with a bronze at 49.76.

"Our distance guys have been working hard and the times are starting to come down," Tangen said. "We are also seeing some improvements in our field events, so we are pretty happy with the meet."

The Frazee girls were led by senior Hannah Daggett, who won the high jump with a height of 5-0, while taking sixth in the 100 hurdles at 18.09.

McKinzie Tangen landed a second-place in the 100 hurdles with a mark of 17.42.

Lake Park-Audubon's Jesse Wixo won the triple jump event with a mark of 39-11, while finishing third in the long jump at 18-01.5.

Frazee will be in Pelican Rapids Friday.
