The boys track team competed at the Dowling Catholic Invite on Apr. 4. The boys started with a band with strong performances in the field events. Aaron Potter ’19 won the shot put by throwing 47 feet 10 inches. Johnny Leth ’20 placed second in the high jump with a jump of 5 feet 8 inches. Jake Dieleman ’19 won the discus by throwing 144 feet 4 inches. Anthony Coleman ’19 placed third in the long jump, with a jump of 20 feet 8 inches. Following the great start in the field events were the running events. The sprint medley won their race but unfortunately they were disqualified because of a botched handoff. The boys had two runners in the top three of the 3200 meter run, Nathan Kellar ‘21 who finished third with a time of 10:23 and Jason White ‘20 who finished second with a time of 10:12. They then won the 4×800 meter relay by 11 seconds beating out Dowling Catholic. This race was a close one until the final leg of the relay. Their official time was 8:28.91. Jackson Blair ‘20 then placed third in the varsity 100 meter dash with a time 11.9 seconds.  The varsity distance medley then got second by only three seconds. Their time was 4:04. The 4×200 meter relay won their race by almost two seconds beating Des Moines Roosevelt with a time 1:35. Luke Perman ’19 placed third in the 1600 meter run with a time of 4:31.52. The 4×400 meter relay ended the night with the closest race of the day. Johnston placed second with a time of 3:26.72. This was a mere 0.43 seconds from first place Dowling Catholic and they beat the third place team, Urbandale, by 0.25 seconds.
