For the boys, Quenton Younker placed second in the shot put, with Noah Nelson finishing second in the 800 meters. The 1600 meter relay team also finished in second place.
Boys' coach Tyler Mosbach was pretty pleased with his team's effort. "It was a very good meet. We had a lot of sore bodies like any team at this point, but the guys never wanted to quit. Even when I forced them to shut it down for the night, the desire to compete was still there. I was very proud of their effort and scoring over 150 points is a pretty good accomplishment. Going into next week we have our big conference meet and are one week closer to the state qualifier at Van Meter"
The WCAC meet next Tuesday, May 1 is the next challenge for the Chargers. Ogden will host this years' meet, with the the first events to begin at 4 PM.
