PILLAGER – The Wadena-Deer Creek track and field teams competed at the Section 6A Sub-Section 22 event at Pillager high school, where a plethora of athletes qualified for the section championships.

On June 2, the boys and girls Wolverines will compete in 26 events at Pelican Rapids High School for a chance to advance to the Class A state track and field meet. The top two finishers in each event automatically qualify for state, along with any other athlete that meets the Class A 2022 state track standards. Those standards can be found here.

Wadena-Deer Creek had a handful of first-place finishes at the sub-section meet. Brady Domier won the 110-meter hurdles race with a time of 16.36. He also won the pole vault at 14-feet, 9-inches, which broke the school record he set at the Park Region Conference championships a week earlier by three inches.

Amber Collins won the girls 400-meter dash with a time of 1:01.61. Matthew Pugsley also won the 400-meter race in the boys competition with a time of 52.26.

Both Wadena-Deer Creek teams finished in third place as a team. The boys tallied 83 points, while the girls collected 82.
