New York Mills boys track and field coach Clyde Gimbel called what Ted Rud did at the section meet incredible and an outstanding accomplishment. Thats quite a compliment from a coach whos been hanging around the track for 30 years.

Rud won three individual titles at the Section 6A track meet June 1 in Moorhead. Impressive enough, but the outstanding accomplishment is this was the third year in a row Rud has won section titles in each of the three events high jump, long jump and triple jump. Nine career section titles and 100 career first place finishes. Impressive and outstanding.

Triple Jump (1st) 439; Long Jump (1st) 214.5; High Jump (1st) 64

This weekend Rud will compete at the state meet, set to defend his state titles in the triple jump and long jump. His track and field days will not end after the state meet. Rud will compete next season at North Dakota State University.

The Eagles sent 11 boys and girls to last weeks section meet but Rud is the only one to advance to the state meet. Three other Eagles did place in the top six. Junior sprinter Kenny Szymonowicz just missed qualifying for the state meet. He placed 3rd in both the 100 Meter Dash and the 200 Meter Dash. His time in the 100 was 11.84 (2nd place was 11.68). He ran a 23.71 in the 200 (2nd place was 23.38). Brittnie Menze placed 5th in the shot put with a mark of 333. Ashley Hagen jumped 50 to place 3rd in the high jump. She tied the second place jumper for 2nd but lost out on criteria.
