Track and Field:
On Thursday, May 30, the Providence Academy Track and Field team competed very well in the first day of the Section 4A Track and Field meet. The first day mostly serves as a preliminary round of competition for most events. Many of the athletes were able to advance to the final round of competition, which will be held on Saturday, June 1, at Macalester College.

Some of the events on Thursday were final events in which athletes were able to qualify for MSHSL State competition. Congratulations to senior Aaron Davis for qualifying for state competition in the boys triple jump.  Aaron jumped a distance of 43-05.25, placing second in the event. Aaron also set a new school record, breaking his own record of 42-07. Junior Maddie Kelly also earned her place in state competition in the girls 3200m Run. At the Section meet, Maddie ran the event in a time of 11:27.93.

Coach Hohenecker shares, “We all look forward to the second day of Section competition, as the team tries to advance more athletes to the Minnesota State Track and Field meet.  Saturday’s section competition will be held at Macalester College and will begin with field events starting at 10:00 a.m.
