Last Saturday Jack and the DL Lakers participated in a track meet at Moorhead. It was the first meet on the new track they installed last fall. The football field is turf and was first used last football season.
First track meet I have been too that there was a line to get in. Also first track meet I have paid to get in to. All good, the event was top notch, well run and having run track in middle and high school and watching Jake and Jack run track, I haven't seen a meet run as well
as this one.
The field is named after my second cousin removed, Jim Gotta who was involved with Moorhead athletics, track and field being his
number one sport.
The meet/invitational named after Phil Seljevold. Moorhead figure that did much for Moorhead athletics. Loved the program. List of all seniors, list of events and times, and had each event listed with all participants and their current PR.
Jack run the JV mile which was the first event and first group to officially race on the new track.
The stadium was lined by M Spud flags. Very nice touch and the stiff breeze pretty much had them straight lined.
Jack coming through.
Seniors being recognized. Shortly after, the anthem was sung. Another nice touch.
Jack on the turf. No one wants their picture taken right after a race. Nice work Jack!
