Both of Farmington’s track teams finished in the middle of the pack at last Tuesday’s Missota Conference Relay Meet at Shakopee Junior High School.
The boys tied Shakopee for the most top-three finishes with 10, but ended up fourth in a tight team race with 149 points. Prior Lake topped Shakopee 169-164 for the team title and Holy Angels was third with 155 points.
Logan Hussung was just getting started when he turned in a couple of second-place finishes in the throwing events at the Hamline Elite Meet two weeks ago.
The senior continued his streak of long tosses last week, breaking Trey Davis’ school record in the discus during a sweep of the throws at Tuesday’s Eagan Wildcat Invitational, then resetting the record while turning in personal bests in both the shot put and discus at Saturday’s Eden Prairie Booster Invitational.
The good news is Farmington’s qualifying events more than held their own at Friday’s Hamline Elite Meet. The great news is there’s still a month and a half for the Tigers to prepare for their planned return to Hamline for the Class 2A State Meet in mid-June.
The Farmington boys and girls track team appear ready to head outdoors.
The Tigers used contributions from up and down their respective lineups to grab a pair of meet victories at Saturday’s Academy of Holy Angels Indoor Invite at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
Farmington girls track and field coach Tom Hart is looking for 22 returning varsity letter-winners to keep his program going in a positive direction after a 2009 season where the Tigers finished fourth at both the conference and section meets and qualified a record four events for the state meet.
