The Bemidji High girls track team took second place Tuesday at the Grand Rapids triangular.

Favored Grand Rapids won easily with 103 points to 50 for Bemidji. Duluth East was a distant third with nine.

Bemidji swept the hurdles and won the 4 x 2 relay. Grand Rapids won everything else and placed two and three finishers in many.

Abby Hendricks led Bemidji with win in the high and intermediate hurdles and ran a leg on the winning relay with Ashley Long, Jessy Bruns and Lexi Gauwitz.

Gauwitz, quickly regaining top form after recovering from a leg injury, also ran the leadoff leg on the second place 4 x 4 relay and triple jumped.

Otherwise, Ann Swartz was second in the 200 and Bruns and Kelsey Heisler went 2-3 in the 400.

Heisler was second in the 800 and Bailey Drewes third in the 1600.

Emily Lawrence and Sam Drewes went 2-3 in the 3200- while Amanda Hunt took third in the intermediate hurdles.

In the field, Gauwitz took second in the triple jump and Tessa Comstock in the pole vault. Hunt was third in the high jump and Olivia Hruby in the long jump. Bemidji was blanked in the weights.

Grand Rapids had four double winners join Hendricks. Lindsy Mattson swept the sprints, Jenna Gillson took the 400 and high jump, Beth Joki the long and triple jumps and Jessica Cagle the shot and discus.

Bemidji heads to Thief River Falls Friday for its next start, a meet replacing the Cambridge Invitational on the original schedule. The small school field should offer Bemidji a good chance of challenging for the title.
