The Rugby High School girls’ track team managed a second place finish last week at the Southern McLean Invitational in Washburn.

The team added another state qualifier in Kristina Brossart, who took first in the 100-meter dash (12.71 seconds). Sara Stier, who qualified for state previously at the Clark & Sharon Lloyd Memorial, qualified again in triple jump.

Brossart also took third in the 200-meter dash.

Brossart and Sara Stier were part of the third-place 4×100 relay team, along with Lauren Kraft and Anni Stier. Anni, Kraft, Brossart and Tristin Lunde were part of the second place 4×200 team.

Another first place finisher was Ellie Duchscherer, who completed the 3200-meter run in 13:43.81 minutes.

The boys took fifth, behind Beulah.

The team had a couple first place finishers of their own in Ryan Michels (high jump, 6’2″) and Tyler Schmaltz (400-meter dash, 55.49).

The boys had strong showings in relays- taking second in the 4×200 and 4×400 and third in the 4×100- and in the 3200-run (Dawson Schepp, 11:01.16).
