May 24 was a great day for the Cambridge-Isanti boys track team, when they competed at the Mississippi 8 Conference meet at Chisago Lakes High School.
Head coach Kent Viesselman was impressed with how his team prepared in route to their second-place finish.
“We had all-conference or honorable mention performers in all but two of the 18 events,” he said. “A credit to all our assistant coaches, they do a fantastic job.”
The boys scored 133 points, putting them in second behind St. Michael-Albertville (149.5). An all around team performance was key in helping the Bluejackets secure the top two finish.
All-conference athletes include; the 4×800 team (second-place) of Mike Dyer, Dylan Larson, Mason Friez and Stephen Smith; the 4×400 team (second-place) of Dylan Larson, Mike Dyer, Clavin Thompson and Stephen Smith; Michael Terwilliger in the 110m hurdles (fourth); Aidan Brown in the high jump (third); Andrew Pauly (second) and Jonah Brady (fourth) in the pole vault; Will Flemister (second), and Erik Mickelson (third) in the shot put; and Caleb Skiba in the discus (second).
The team also saw two conference champions. Dan Colbaugh in the discus at 145 feet five inches, and Cole Larson in the 300m hurdles with a time of 42.07.
Up next for the Bluejackets will be the Section 7AA meet which will be held at Cambridge-Isanti High School on May 31 and June 3.
