There weren’t many changes among the Class A track and field leaders when it comes to local athletes this past week.

Morgan Fiedler of Aberdeen Roncalli made the biggest move, sprinting her way into the leaders in the 200-meter dash following her performance at the Northeast Conference meet last week in Groton. The junior is now sixth in the event. She also moved up the charts in the 100-meter dash and is now fourth in that event. She is fifth in the long jump and sixth in the triple jump.

Milbank Area’s Bennett Schwenn continues to have a stellar spring (see related story on the website). He is first in the 200-meter dash and triple jump, third in the long jump, seventh in the 400, and runs on the top Class A sprint medley relay squad. He is also a member of the 1,600-meter relay which has the second best time.

Nick Batchelor of Milbank Area is first in the 1,600-meter run and also runs on those relay teams.

Other area athletes among the leaders in the boys’ division include Andrew Kranhold of Sisseton who is tied for second in the high jump, Drew Reetz of Webster who is second in the pole vault, and Ryker Trevett of Milbank Area who is second in the shot put. Noah Johnson of Clark-Willow Lake is third in the shot put.

In the girls’ division, Gracelynn Leiseth of Hamlin is first in the discus and second in the shot put with teammate Kami Wadsworth third in both. Greta Snaza of Milbank Area tops the pole vault, Makenna Prouty of Hamlin is tied for first in the high jump, and Ashlynn Batchelor of Milbank Area is second in the 3,200-meter run.
