The Bruning-Davenport/Shickley track teams headed to Henderson on Wednesday where Heartland hosted the D-6 District Track Meet to qualify participants for the NSAA State Track and Field Championships held in Omaha on May 22-23.  The day had its up and downs, but in the end was successful as nine events and 13 Eagle team members were able to qualify for State.  The girls team won a tough battle for second place in the nine-team meet, while the BDS boys ended up in sixth.
Eagle qualifiers were led by Catherine Mick who enters State as the leader in the pole vault (11-9), where she holds the Class D State Record and both the 100-meter and 300-meter hurdles where she ran the state-leading times of 14.9 and 45.9, respectively.  Catherine also anchored the 1,600 meter relay which finished third in season's best time of 4:20.9 and extra qualified to run at State.  Kristin Troyer had a leap of 33.5 to take first place in the triple jump, while Megan Grote jumped 4-9 and qualified by taking second in the high jump.  In addition to Catherine, the Eagle girls' 1,600 meter relay included Tristen Mosier, Courtney Kamler and Troyer.
The boys qualified two relays by running season best times.  The 3,200 meter relay team of Charlie Martin, Jayden Otto, T.J. Krupicka and Karson Dixon finished the race in 8:55.3 to finish second and extra qualify, while the 1,600 meter relay team of T.J., Chris Rohr, Grant Norder and Kendall Dixon finished first in a time of 3:34.6 and received the automatic birth to State.  Sam Christensen ran to a New School Record time of 15.8 seconds in the 100 meter hurdles, but finished third, so he had wait to see that he also extra qualified and will run at State.
