Despite the winter weather, the Sundance track team was able to participate in their first meet of the season as they traveled to Buffalo to compete in the Jerry Campbell Invite. There were competitors from 15 different teams at the Invite as the Bulldogs began to feel out their competition for the season. 

Two Bulldog athletes met the pre-qualifying marks for the state track meet. Bailey Hofland threw 112-03 in the discus with a qualifying mark being 101-5, and Keaton Mills jumped at the qualifying height of 5-10 in the high jump.

Hofland's throw earned her a second-place finish for the meet in discus. She also earned a seventh-place finish in the shot put event. Mills state qualifying jump earned him an 8th place finish for the meet.

The Bulldog medley teams also had success throughout the day. The girls' 1600m, composed of Riley Banker, Bailey Hofland, Rylie Marchant and Brook Hofland, finished 4th with a time of 4:57.81 and the boys 1600, with Jesse Harmon, Holden Ayer, Keaton Mills, and Ryder Downey, finished in second place with a time of 4:00.77.

The Bulldog Track and field team will look to continue to improve their times and distances on Friday, April 8 as they compete in the Queen City Classic in Spearfish.
