MONTEVIDEO — The Holdingford boys and the Osakis girls won championships at the Section 5A True Team track and field meet on Tuesday.

Montevideo was the runner-up in boys and Morris Area/Chokio-Alberta came in second on the girls side. Those teams enter a wild-card playoff with the runners-up from the other seven sections. One boys team and one girls team will emerge after comparing time and distances to make a nine-team field for the Coaches Association True Team State Meet on May 18 at Stillwater.

Junior Kari Hoeft of Paynesville won the triple jump (32-10), high jump (5-0), 100 hurdles (16.66) and the 300 hurdles (47.69).

In boys, Jacob Peterson of YME took the 100 dash (11.85) and the 200 (23.80). He also won triple jump (41-4). Marcus Cannon of Morris Area claimed the hurdle double going 16.28 in the highs and 41.99 in the 300 intermediates.

Redwood Valley’s Randy Juell went 13-0 in pole vault and 20-6 long jump to win both events by convincing margins.

Each of the 14 teams were allowed two entrants per event and one relay.
