Todd County Sports
Valandra / Herman smash state qualifying standards
By Rich Winter
Generally the first track meet of the year is an opportunity to stretch the legs, get out on the track and see where your at.
For Todd County athletes, Caelyn Valandra and Kelsie Herman, it was a chance to blow past state qualifying standards and punch their tickets to the state track meet.
Valandra destroyed the field in the 400 meters, clocking a 60.4. The 7th grader came back later in the day to scorch the field in the 200 meters with a time of 26.5. That 26.5 put a scare into Suzanne Mealer’s school record of 26.34, set in 1993.
After a cold and windy early afternoon, the winds subsided and Kelsie Herman took her turn, blowing out an 11:59 3200 meters to easily break the state qualifying standard.
Quote from Kornely:
It was a terrific effort from the girls who won the 4x800 (missed state qualifying by 2 seconds 10:15) and the medley relay, the 1600 meters (Karli Prue) and finished 2nd in the team standings, trailing team winner, Kimball/While Lake, by just six team points (110-104).
The Todd County boys were similarly impressive, finishing in second (Gregory) in the team standings while having a number of outstanding performances.
Ty Herman won the 100 )11.7), Austin Hammer won the long jump (19’1”) and the boys won the 4x800 relay, the medley relay and the 4x400 relay to finish off a spectacular first day on the track.
