Track: A chance to compete

With large numbers of participants out for both boys and girls track, it sometimes becomes difficult to get everyone opportunities for actual meet experience.

The Tigers solved that dilemma Tuesday by sending one team to Eagan for the Wildcat Invitational and another to a triangular with Red Wing and New Prague in Red Wing.

Farmington entrants scored many personal bests at the triangular with the best finish of the day belonging to the 4x100 relay team of Max Aldana, Dylan Otterness, Gavin Bassett and Nino Douangboutdy.

Four Farmington individual performers scored third place points: Chris Erickson, 300-meter run; Alex Hall, 300-meter hurdles; Alex Hall, high jump and Dylan Hammerschmidt, pole vault.

Jackson Schneider placed fourth in both the 1600 and 3200 meter runs. Ryan Newton ranked fourth in the 300-meter hurdles and Jakob Lee was fourth in the discus.

All of the Tiger girls' points of the afternoon came in the 800-meter run where Alexis Johnson and Nicole Willis ranked third and fourth respectively.
