Perham was in eighth place out of nine teams after three events but climbed up one spot to seventh with four events remaining. That's where the Yellowjackets finished with a team total of 269 points. Perham placed above Cloquet (256.5) and Plainview-Elgin-Millville (239).

Totino-Grace won the meet by a 59-point cushion over Mankato East 446-387. Sartell-St. Stephen and Willmar tied for third place with 343 points each. Hutchinson, the wild card team, placed fifth (341.5); St. Croix Lutheran scored 308 for sixth place.

Perham's top finishes were no suprised as Keeghan Hurley contined a senior season where all he does is win races.

Hurley won the 800m 09 and the 1,600m run in 4:17.76. In the 1,600, Hurley grabbed the lead on the first lap and continually extended his advantage to the finish line. Teammate Billy Beseman showed he is used to keeping up with Hurley with an impressive third place finish in 4:24.20. Eighth-grader Carson Speicher placed 13th in the 800m behind Hurley in a time of 2:09.05.

Beseman and Jayden Cullen placed fifth and seventh in the 3,200m run. Beseman ran 10:05.74; Cullen 10:11.95. Isaiah Barlow, of Hutchinson, won the race in 9:53.73.

Perham had a pair of runner-up finishes. Eli Beachy cleared 13-feet in the pole vault, bested only by Calvin Deike, of Mankato East, at 13-6.

William Parks threw the discus 137-10 for second place behind Cloquet's Even Erickson (158-04). Jonathon Siira, of Perham, placed sixth with a throw of 126-05.

Perham's top relay mark came in the 4x800m in a fifth place time of 8:28.96.
