16 total teams attended the Joan Halland Invitational on Monday, May 6th. Kindred High School hosted the competition, starting at 4:20pm and running until dusk. Of the 16 men's teams, EMV placed 6th, VCHS placed 12th, and LLM and BCN placed 15th and 16th respectively. The women's teams ranked with VCHS placed 7th, LLM at 8th, EMV in 12th, and BCN at 16th. The teams competed with a high level of intensity and a lot of athletes were able to obtain new personal records. One of the most impressive marks of the day came from Lain Combs of Enderlin/ Maple Valley. Combs was able to Triple Jump 41'11.5”, just short of his personal record of 42'1”. Not competing in the horizontal jumps during the 2018 campaign, qualifying for States puts Combs in a good position. Enderlin/ Maple Valley also has Emma Baasch qualified in the 300m Hurdles. The Times Record looks forward to other Barnes County athletes qualifying as the season reaches its end.
