The Madison Bulldogs had a stellar performance at the Dan Lennon Invitational Track and Field meet at the DakotaDome in Vermillion on Monday.
"We took about a third of our team to Vermillion and were really happy with our efforts," said coach Kevin DeCurtins. "We did find out that we have more work to do to get where we want to be condition wise but that will come as we are able to get outside and on the track rather than doing inside workouts."
Coley Stoller was the only Bulldog to bring home a first-place medal. Stoller won the triple jump with a leap of 36-feet-6.25.
Emily Hawkes finished third in the 1600-meter run with a time of 5:26.61. Hailey Streff placed fourth in the 3200-meter run with a time of 11:47.05. Tayler Anderson was the only boy to place in an event. He finished fourth in the long jump with a leap of 20-feet-3.75.
There were 2195 athletes from Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota and Class "AA" South Dakota schools competing in the meet.
"I told our kids that anytime you bring home hardware from a meet like this one you had a special day," DeCurtins said. "We'll be working hard to get ready for our meet at Elk Point on Tuesday." Action will get started at 3:30 p.m. at Elk Point.
