Girls track: Hickman wins pole vault, Wall wins 200 at Detroit Lakes

DETROIT LAKES — Hope Hickman sailed 9-0 to win the pole vault and Maea Wall captured the 200 with a time of 27.7 and their efforts helped the Bemidji girls track and field team finish second at Thursday’s Detroit Lakes Invitational.

“We tried the kids in different races to see where they would fit best before the True Team meet,” said BHS coach Chris Lehman. “We saw many good things at the meet, especially the mid-distance kids.

“Hope and Matti Osborn also made some nice steps in the pole vault.”

Hickman was the lone vaulter to clear nine feet while Osborn tied for third at 8-0.

Wall owned a comfortable edge in the 200 as she hit the tape more than one-half of a second ahead of her nearest challenger.

Bemidji’s 4x800 relay team also set the pace (9:49.10) while the 4x400 unit was second (4:18.30).

Jenna Truedson also had a fine performance as she was second in the 400 (1:00.16). Also contributing runner-up finishes were Megan Serratore in the 1600 (5:30.96), Claire Laakso in the 300 hurdles (50.52) and Emily Falldorf in the high jump (4-10).

Adding thirds were Sadie Hamrin in the 1600 (5:38.79) and Laakso in the 100 hurdles (17.56) while Arie Gislason was fifth in the 400 (1:03.83) and Maura Chadwick was fifth in the high jump (4-8).
