Section track and field, baseball updates

Kyle Felling just broke the B-B-E school record in the long jump. His first jump of the finals at Section 6A had an unofficial distance of 21 feet, five inches.

Allisa Knight broke the school record in the triple jump. *Update: she earned nice hardware with a fourth-place medal!

**Update: Kyle Felling is in rare company as he is headed to state in three events! He took second in the long jump, and he just won the Section 6A 400-meter dash. He took second in the 200 dash to advance in that event.

In addition to all of that, the boys' 4x400 relay squad placed fifth to earn medals. In the pole vault, eighth-grader Tyler Jensen had a terrific day while breaking his personal record of 11 feet, three inches. Jensen earned a section medal with a fifth-place finish.

That's all to report for now.

**Sub-section baseball update: the B-B-E Jaguars defeated No. 3-seeded West Central Area 7-5 with Ryan Illies hitting a two-RBI, walk-off home run!! Awesome!!

Their second game today will be aired on 95.7 KKOK radio of Morris. The opponent will be top-seeded Border West. Earlier today, Border West defeated No. 4-seeded Ortonville by an 8-1 score.
