Austin Borah qualifies for state in 100-meter dash

Share

By Jay Davis

The injury bug started taking little nibbles at the Tigers, but not before Austin Borah qualified for state in the 100-meter dash at the Ipswich Invitational on Saturday.
Borah busted out a fast time of 11.02 seconds to win the race and earn his spot on the state roster. Eric Thomas of Faulkton Area and Nick Larson of Herreid-Selby Area ran state-qualifying times of 11.18 seconds while taking second and third, respectively.
Before the day was over, Borah was one of three Tigers to be suffering from minor injury. He has a problem with a calf muscle, while Cody Schaefbauer is dealing with a hip problem and Conner Stoick with a pulled quad muscle. The injuries are more worrisome than anything right now. Coach Marty Looyenga said runners may have to back off and rest a bit as being ready to go full bore at state is the most important thing.
Daniel Roberts kept up his season streak double dipping the throwing titles. Roberts went 51 feet, 6.5 inches to win the shot put and 173-0 to win the discus. Dave Frohling of Britton-Hecla reached the state-qualifying standard, but finished 20 feet behind Roberts.
The injury bug did stop the Tigers from running the 1600-meter relay, but it did not stop them from winning the 800-meter relay. Borah, Schaefbauer, Mitch Heumiller and Mason Keller won the race at 1:34.09. The Tigers added a second relay win when Keller, Heumiller, Cody Hanson and Jason Hill crossed the finish line at 3:59.9 in the medley.
By adding three second-place finishes, two fourths, three fifths, two sevenths and two eighths, the Tigers finished second in team standings. Aberdeen Roncalli ran away from the field with 201 points. The Tigers scored 99.5. Herreid-Selby Area was third at 88.
Steph Gemar was the only Lady Tiger to bring home the gold. Gemar won the discus130-2.5. Madison Kienow of Ipswich was right on her tail with a state-qualifying 128.95.
The Lady Tigers had three runners-up finishes with Brandi Martian taking second in the high jump, Alexa Schaefbauer taking second in the triple jump and the 800-meter relay team taking second.
Martian cleared 4-5 for her runner-up position. Haylee Biel of Herreid-Selby Area won the event at 4-9.
Schaefbauer went 30-9.5 in the triple jump. Kristie Mettler of Timber Lake went a state-qualifying 33-10.5 to win. Schaefbauer added a third-place finish in the long jump.
The team of Schaefbauer, Kayla Schneider, Madison Rau and Maranda Wagner just missed breaking two minutes in the 800-meter relay. The girls ran a 2:00.7. Aberdeen Roncalli won the race at 1:59.78.
The Lady Tigers came away with four more third-place finishes, two fourths, one fifth, one sixth, two sevenths and two eighths to take third in team standings with 87 points. Roncalli won with 123 points. Herreid-Selby Area was second with 95 points.
