Hornets have strong meet in PR

The Frazee boys' and girls' track and field teams competed in the smaller Pelican Rapids Invite Thursday, gaining more than several top finishes.

"It was a small meet and a very good opportunity for our young kids to get a chance to compete and even earn a place at a varsity meet," said Frazee boys' head coach Brian Tangen.

A good race was had in each of the 100 and 200-meter dashes, as Frazee junior Forrest Jackson finished in second in each to Hawley senior speedster Nate Mattson.

Jackson ran an 11.18 in the 100 to Mattson's 11.13, while marking a 23.54 to the Hawley's sprinter's 23.01.

The Hornet 4x100 team of Jackson, Dakota Zick, Alex Mendieta and McKenzey Watchorn finished second to Hawley with a time of 48.04.

The Lady Hornets also placed well, taking second as a team to first-place Pelican Rapids.

Frazee won three events, including Ellie Bachman's first-place finish in the 800 run with a mark of 2:33.16.

Hannah Daggett was the highest jumper with a 5-03 mark, while the 4x800 foursome won their event with a time of 11:26.40.

The Hornets will take part in the Park Rapids meet Tuesday.

Daggett and Jackson also competed in the Hamline Elite meet Friday in St. Paul, after making qualifying times and distances.

Daggett competed in the high jump and Jackson in the 100 dash.
