The thrill of victory …. the agony of defeat … one shot says it all. The underdogs, Duluth East’s 4×400 meter relay team, seeded 5th for the race, captured the first place spot in the Minnesota Section 7AA high school track meet. The top two relay teams move on to the State Meet, and the face of the runner for the top-seeded Andover team, just a split-second behind second place, reflects that fact.
Congratulations to all the runners (as well as the race officials, coaches, and spectators!) at yesterday’s meet, which turned into a 9 1/2 hour marathon full of weather delays, stops and starts. It was quite a day. Every race has a story to tell.
