The Frazee boys' track and field team had an outstanding day, breaking a couple of records and placing first in the Pelican Rapids meet Thursday.
The Hornets took their first meet of the season by scoring 153 points, ahead of second-place Morris Area, which had 142.
"We had some very good performances and are very pleased with where we are at this point of the season," said Frazee head boys' coach Brian Tangen.
Senior Forrest Sauer set the bar a little higher in the pole vault, after he broke the FHS record with a height of 12-0 Thursday, for first place. Sauer previously was tied with Tyler Steinle and John Schermerhorn for the school record, but now sits alone on top of school history.
"Pole vault coach Ryan Damlo has done an outstanding job with our vaulters," Tangen said.
The 4x200 team of Drew Daggett, Cory Sandberg, Skyler Jackson and Mike Galbrecht set the meet record with a time of 1:37.41, which was previously held by the Agassiz Valley team from 2003 with a mark of 1:38.5.
Overall, the Hornets landed four first place and nine runner-up finishes to key their team victory.
Daggett had another solid outing, winning the high jump with a height of 6-03, while taking second in the 300 hurdles at 41.43 -- both were personal bests for the Hornet junior. He also finished second in the 110 hurdles with a mark of 15.25.
The 4x100 relay team capped Frazee's first-place finishes, winning it with a 47.92. The foursome included McKay and Mike Galbrecht, Skyler Jackson and Sandberg.
Other second place finishers included Jackson (100 dash and triple jump), Cody Gaetz (400), Morgan Vetter (800), McKay Galbrecht (200), Nathan Bellefeuille (3,200) and the 4x800 team of Nathan Bellefeuille, Hunter Graham, Heiko Jelitto and Vetter.
The Hornets will be in Glyndon Monday for a meet hosted by D-G-F, beginning at 4:30 p.m., and in Park Rapids Tuesday.
