Track and field, baseball updates

The B-B-E Jaguars baseball team lost 15-7 to Brandon/Evansville this afternoon in their second playoff game of the week. They are facing New York Mills now in an elimination game.

No members of the B-B-E Jaguars track and field teams are heading to state after seven competed in the Section 6A meet today in Fergus Falls. Two earned medals, though, which is awesome!

Eighth grader Allisa Knight took fourth in the long jump (16 feet, one inch) to earn a medal, and she barely missed earning a medal in the triple jump (seventh place, 32-11.5). Kyle Felling, a junior, hauled in medals in the 100 (sixth place, 11.77 seconds) and 400 races. In the 400, he took third place and barely missed out on a trip to state. He broke his own personal record in that event while also breaking the 32-year old B-B-E school record. His time was 51.03 seconds, two-hundredths of a second better than Tim Wengler's record set in 1985, the year he graduated from Belgrade-Elrosa high school.

That's all for now!
