SE 4 X 800 team heads to state after shattering school record


By Kurt Menk

The Sibley East 4 X 800 meter relay team is state bound after shattering the school record at the Section 2A Boys Track and Field Meet at Mankato West on Saturday, June 1.

The foursome, which includes Micah Scherer, Jens Lundstrom, Jose Nevarez and Travis Andrews, placed second and set a new school record with a time of 8:20.89. The time shattered their own previous school record of 8:37.01.

“The race played out similarly to others they have run this season,” said Sibley East head coach Jim Kreft.  “Micah started with a fast leg to get them in fourth, Jens quickly got them into third in his leg, Jose passed another team to get into second, and Travis, again proving why he is a great anchor runner, brought home the baton with a ticket to state.”
