CL's Backes and NB's Bauer heading to state track meet

Section 7AA Meet
Chisago Lakes Wildcat junior thrower Beau Backes will be representing his school in two events at this weekend’s state high school track and field championships.  At last week’s Section 7AA meet, held at Chisago Lakes High School, he won the discus with a throw of 161’11”.  He came in second in the shot put with a heave of exactly 50 feet.  

Backes is the only Wildcat athlete who made it to the state tournament this year.

For the North Branch Vikings, sophomore Paige Bauer’s vault of 11’1” in the pole vault earned her a spot in the state tournament.  Bauer is the only Viking athlete who made it to state this year.  

The Wildcat boys’ team finished eighth out of 15 section teams, while the Vikings came in eleventh.  

For the girls’ events, the Wildcats placed twelfth out of 16 teams and the Vikings finished fourteenth.

The state track and field championships will be held, as always, at Hamline University in St. Paul.  

Backes will compete in the shot put at 9 a.m Friday.  On Saturday, he will compete in the discus at 10:15 a.m.  Bauer will compete in the pole vault at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

Viking seniors Matt Stuber and Joseph Nihart finished third and fourth, respectively, in the 1600-meter run.  Each runner was less than two seconds shy of second place and earning a berth in the state meet.  And the North Branch girls four by 200-meter relay team of Emily Kristo, Paige Bauer, Lilly Johnson and Savanah Hoard finished third.  They were the only relay team from either school to finish in the top three in any relay event.
