Area athletes manage multiple top finishes at Drake
Despite having just seven combined qualifiers for Drake Relays, the track teams from Colfax-Mingo, Collins-Maxwell-Baxter, Lynnville-Sully and Prairie City-Monroe gained plenty of attention and accolades over the weekend.
On top of three top-eight finishes, the six area competitors picked up invaluable experience and took additional steps to returning to Drake Stadium for the state track meet in May.
Perhaps no competitor in the field had more to gain than Colfax-Mingo senior Jaden Van Dyke. After initially missing out on qualifying by one spot in the 800-meter run, Van Dyke received the word last Wednesday that he would indeed be competing after another athlete dropped out. It’s fair to say he made the most of the opportunity.
