MCC starts season with annual Early Bird

This particular meet is always one of those that’s a guessing game whether the weather will cooperate in order to have the meet. This year was one of those years the meet was a reality.

Making their way to Slayton were teams from Heron Lake-Okabena/Fulda, Russell-Tyler-Ruthton, Wabasso, Windom Area, and Worthington.

MCC’s Aaron Johnson, a junior, was a contender all last season in the hurdle events and looks to make an impact again this year.

Johnson finished third in the 100-meter event – just missing second by a split second 12.48 to 12.49. Tyler Winter hit a PR (personal best) crossing the finish line at 13.01 with Adrian Galvez finished in the 6th spot with a time of 13.37. Also competing in the event were Brock Smith (13.96), Brayden Alhers (13.96), Logan Steinle (14.00), Jake Bleyenberg (14.04), Colin Christensen (14.24), and Alex Galvez (14.85).

Johnson was able to break into the top ten in the 200 meters earning 8th overall with his time of 26.83. Nick Marotzke, Wabasso, earning the top place (25.65) while Gabe Spittle, Heron Lake-Okabena/Fulda finished second with a time of 25.72. Tyler Winter (27.56) was 12th while Adrian Galvez (27.68) was right behind him in 13th. Dawnson Brown, freshman, placed 19th with a time of 28.39.
