The Pequot Lakes girls and boys track and field teams took advantage of their home course as they combined to win 18 events and sweep both team titles at the TDS Invitational on Friday, May 16, at Pequot Lakes High School.

The Patriot boys compiled 152 points while Little Falls was second with 125 while the Pequot Lakes girls finished with 209 points while Pillager was second with 121.

Chase Blaeser won both hurdle events while teammate Tyler Tappe won the 200 dash and pole vault for the Patriots. Blaeser, Cole Funk, CJ Borleis and Tappe also won the 4x100 relay.

“The TDS meet is a warm up for the lineup we want to see at subsections,” said Pequot Lakes boys’ coach Dave Guenther. “It also gives all the kids a chance to participate and try some different combinations. We did have had some injury issues and some sickness so some of our key athletes were not able to participate.”

Guenther was happy to see the return of Isaac Allen, who has battled illness most of the season.

“Isaac is one of our top performers, but he is still weak from illness,” he said. “We hope he can make some recovery before the subsections (on Thursday). Jere Dishinger will also play an important part, and we hope to have him in the lineup. We are not a deep team so when one or two guys are missing it hurts.

“Our throwers, like Travis Jacobson and Keegan Johnson, are doing well. And Tyler (Tappe) cleared 15 feet in the pole vault at the conference meet (May 13). I’m glad to see him hit that mark.”

Event winners for the Pequot Lakes girls were Vanessa Lane, in the 100 and 200 dashes; Ellie Erholtz, shot put; Lyndsey Johnson, high jump; Grace McGuire, 400 dash; and Jackie Brine-Doyle, 3,200. The Patriots also won all four girls’ relays - Rachel Allen, Chloe Bermel, Sarah Rudlang and Lane in the 4x100; Allen, Brittny Bzdok, McGuire and Rudlang in the 4x200; McGuire, Lyndsey Johnson, Rudlang and Bermel in the 4x400; and Brine-Doyle, Elsa Headlee, Kristin Skog and Caitie Ryan in the 4x800.

“We had a super night of track and field,” said Patriot girls’ coach Jana Lueck. “Our girls are tough to beat on the track and in the throwing events.”

The Pine River-Backus boys placed sixth while the Tiger girls were eighth. PR-B’s Henry Krecklau won the long jump while the Tigers’ Megan Porta triumphed in the discus and the long jump.

“Both (Krecklau and Porta) have been strong and consistent in their events all year,” said PR-B coach Tom Demars. “I expect them both to have good showings at the subsection.”

The Patriots and Tigers will both compete in the Subsection 6A meet on Thursday, May 22, at Pequot Lakes.

“A few of our section teams were here and we got a good glimpse of where we could stand in our subsection and section,” Lueck said of the TDS Invitational. “Our weather we have had has really taken its toll on our field events. We are getting in more practice time lately, but we will need a little more time to be ready for subsections.”
