ST. MICHAEL – Brady Domier had a pretty good weekend at the Class A state track and field championships.

On Thursday, the senior took second in the pole vault at 14-feet, 6-inches. He trailed only Pine Island’s Jarod White, who cleared 16-feet. White broke the state record earlier this season.

Domier also qualified for the finals in the 110-meter hurdles. He raced in the prelims to a time of 15.57 before finishing in seventh place on Friday at 15.75.

A full feature on Brady Domier’s close to an impressive high school track and field career will be in the June 30 edition of the Wadena Pioneer Journal.

Domier was the only Wolverine to get out of the prelims. Amber Collins and Matthew Pugley raced in the 400-meter races. Collins took 11th at 1:01.67, while Pugsley’s time of 53.55 was good enough for 15th.


Pugsley and Domier ran in the 4x200-meter relay with Lyrik Haug and Charlie Bushiner. The Wolverines finished one spot out of qualifying for finals at 1:35.08. Haug also competed in the triple jump. He took 22nd at 5-feet, 8-inches.

The top nine in each preliminary event advanced to the second stage of the state meet.
