FDSH wins ‘dual’ track meet

DES MOINES — The Fort Dodge boys track team had an interesting night Tuesday, competing in what became a dual with Des Moines Hoover.

After three of the five teams opted out of the invitational at the last minute, the Dodgers elected to have a head-to-head competition with the Huskies. They captured the team trophy at this meet a season ago.

Kaleb Jondle was victorious in the 100-meter dash, clocking a time of 11.090, while Russell Potratz won the 800 in 2:23.27.

“The kids had a lot of fun competing like this,” FDSH head coach John McBride said. “We came home with a bag full of medals.

“We had some good times, which is sometimes hard to do when you are running by yourself.”

Trey Kasperbauer was a winner in the 110 hurdles in 17.12, besting teammate Anthony Wagner. Freshman Asle Thorson made it a clean sweep in the event by placing third.

Thorson also prevailed in the high jump (5-4), and was second in the 400 hurdles.

Dartayvious Diekman claimed the long jump with a leap of 18-3, Dalton Schmidt won the discus (93-2) and Noah Telfer was second in the shot put (39-3).

Fort Dodge won the 4×100, 4×200, 4×400, 4×800, sprint medley, distance medley and shuttle hurdle relays.

Jondle, Luke Jacobson, Brycen Bell and Trey Mosley ran the 4×100 (44.91), 4×200 (1:34.8) and sprint medley (1:39.38); Aidan Simonson, Bowyn Hennings, Riley Crimmins and Kasperbauer the 4×400 (3:49.85); Jason Halverson, Ryan Wagner, Hennings and Austin Lee the 4×800 (9:17.88); Ozzy Pattison, Savion Poe, Jeremiah Hughes and Lee the distance medley (4:08.31); and Kasperbauer, Anthony Wagner, Thorson and Mason Bodholdt the shuttle hurdle (1:04.59).

The Dodgers return to action Thursday at Johnston for the CIML Iowa Conference meet.
