Two M-8 champs for C-I girls track

Both Cambridge-Isanti track & field squads placed 4th at the Mississippi 8 Championships which had to be spread over two days due to the wet conditions on May 21.

The Buffalo boys defended its M-8 championship, while the St. Michael-Albertville girls overcame multi-season champ Monticello in their half of the meet. The C-I boys were the 2013 M-8 Academic champions.

The Bluejacket girls’ work was highlighted with two conference champions. Senior Kylie Baas cleared 5-02 to win the high jump, and sophomore Anna Nelson hit 9-06 to take 1st in the pole vault.

Also earning All-M8 for the Jacket girls were: Lily Porta in the triple jump (2nd, 33-02), Allison Krueger in the discus (2nd, 95-03), and Paige Muehlhauser in the 400 (2nd, 1:02.2).

Darren DeBaere led the C-I boys by taking 2nd in the shot put at 39-0. Adding All-Conference honors for the team were: Bryant Nelson in the pole vault (3rd, 12-0), and the 4×400 relay of Dan Kropidlowski, Travis Holt, John Solberg & Justin Rud (2nd, 1:35.0).
