The Wadena-Deer Creek boys and girls track and field team earned their first victory of the season at their first meet in two years Friday, April 16, 2021, in Wadena. They beat Bertha-Hewitt/Verndale, Long Prairie Grey Eagle, and Upsala/Swanville.

Head coach Marc Reynolds was happy to be back and to get some of the younger athletes their first varsity experience.

"It was good to get the kids back to competing after such a long lay off!" Reynolds said. "It was fun to see the excitement in the kids and to see how they have progressed from 2019. We have a lot of younger athletes with minimal experience, so it was good for them to get a meet in."

On the girls team, Amber Collins took first in the 800, Isabelle Larson won the high jump and pole vault events, and the team won the 4x100 relay with Madison Packer, Kylee Collins, Britta Sweeney, and Lydia Oldakowski, the 4x400 relay with Amber Collins, Johanna Brunsberg, Addyson Gravelle, and Kelanie Oldakowski, and the 4x800 relay with Collins, Brunsberg, Emma Mehl, and Emma Ries.

The boys team also took first place in three relay events. The relay team of Brady Domier, D'Andre Hammond, Teshe Loer, and Kaden Peterson won both the 4x100 and 4x200 relays, and the team of Cole Dunker, Charlie Bushinger, MJ Lunde, and Aiden Larson won the 4x400 relay. Dunker also took first in the 300 hurdles and the long jump, Larson won the triple and high jump, Domier won the pole vault event, and Koby Endres took first in the shot put.


"Overall, we had well rounded team finishes on both the girls and boys teams," Reynolds said. "We scored points in the throws, the jumps, pole vaulting, hurdles, sprinting, and distance events."

The Wolverines start the season with a 1-0 record. They travel to Sebeka Thursday, April 22, for a 4 p.m. meet.
