The Bruning-Davenport/Shickly track team participated in the D-4 District meet held at Sandy Creek.  In the nine-team district, the girls ended up in fourth place and the boys were fifth.  Two girls qualified to participate at the State Track meet held in Omaha this weekend along with six Eagle boys.
The girls were led by senior Catherine Mick who won all four of the events she participated in.  She won the pole vault with a leap of 11-6, the 100 hurdles with a time of 15.1, the 100-meter dash where she broke the School Record and ran a personal best time of 12.4, and the 300-meter hurdles where she not only established a personal best, and broke her own School Record, she also broke the State Class D record by running a 44.7.  Tristen Mosier also established a personal best mark finishing second in the pole vault with a leap of 10-10 qualifying for the State meet in that event.  She took home another medal with a fifth-place run in the 300 hurdles.  Tristen then teamed up with Mashaya Dierking, Jadyn Kleinschmidt, and Sera Johnson to finish fourth in the 400-meter relay, and later teamed up with Courtney Kamler, Brice Ardissono, and Madison Elznic to finish fifth in the 1,600-meter relay as well.
Jadyn finished her day with a personal best in the triple jump, leaping 31-10 and taking fifth place.  Megan Grote took fifth place in the high jump, and the girls 3,200-meter relay team of Morgan Lowery, Haley Pena Lopez, Johana Degner, and Kim Ardissono rounded out the girls scoring with a fifth place finish as well.
The boys’ team had two individual state qualifiers led by Hunter Krehnke who established his personal best and broke the School Record by running a 15.5 second 110-meter hurdles to finish first place in that event.  Thomas Mick jumped 13-10 to finish second in the pole vault and also qualify for State.  The boys 3,200-meter relay team of Kamron Dickson, Kale Smith, Brett Holtzen, and Karson Dickson had to wait to see how other districts came out but did qualify for the State meet with a second-place run in their relay that finished in a time of 8:56.5.  Kamron and Brett came back later to run to in the open 800-meters with Kamron taking fourth in 2:12.3 and Brett fifth in a personal best time of 2:13.7.
