Caledonia/Spring Grove sprinter Jack Beardmore broke the Three Rivers Conference Track Meet 100-meter dash record on May 11 at Paul Giel Field in Winona with a time of 11.07 seconds. The previous record was set seven years ago by another Warrior Adam Drenkhahn.

With limited numbers - only nine Warrior boys combining to enter only 10 of the 18 events, they were not a major factor in the team standings. Likewise for the 11 mostly very young C/SG girls who entered only eight events. Among 10 teams, the C/SG boys placed sixth and the girls 10th. For the eighth straight year, Plainview-Elgin-Millville took both TRC team titles.

In a 10-team meet, the top nine places in each event earn team points.


The highest finish for C/SG was sophomore Eliza Welscher running second among 29 girls in the 100-meter dash. She and freshman Alysha Heaney placed fifth and ninth, respectively, among 30 sprinters at 200 meters.

Both also contributed to a third place in the 4x100-meter relay. With their best time of the season (53.66 seconds) were Heaney and Welscher along with eighth graders Kloe Jore and Alexis Schroeder.

Eighth grader Arianna Tostenson placed ninth with a personal-best long jump of 14 feet, 11.75 inches.


Beardmore and Brady Glynn of Dover-Eyota split top honors while dueling in the two speed events. Glynn finished second to Beardmore in the 100M dash, while the places were reversed (Glynn first, Beardmore second) at 200 meters.

C/SG senior Nick McCabe also had a personal-record time (11.83) while finishing sixth at 100 meters. He ran fifth among 29 boys at 200 meters.

McCabe placed even higher with a third-place shot put of 45 feet, 11.25 inches.

Earning team points in four different events, McCabe was on the third-place 4x100-meter relay along with Beardmore, junior Jack Strub and sophomore Brody Johnson.

Freshman Christopher Pieper earned fifth place points in high jump (6-00) and ran on the seventh place 4x200-meter relay along with Johnson, Strub and junior Ethan Jacobson.
