BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji High School track and field teams succumbed to the Spuds of Moorhead on Monday, falling 93-65 on the girls side and 118-40 on the boys side at the BHS track.

Despite the team losses, though, Mady Schmidt was a perfect 3-for-3 in capturing first place for the Lumberjacks in each of her individual events.

Schmidt topped the podium in the 100-meter hurdles (15.41 seconds), the 200-meter dash (27.05) and the long jump (15 feet, 6.5 inches).

Schmidt’s efforts were a part of eight wins for the Bemidji girls. Individually, Mary Beth Mathews was the best triple jumper with a distance of 33-1.25, while Regan DeWitt (5:45.76) and Liberty Dickerson (2:37.13) topped the field in the 1600 and 800 runs, respectively.

A pair of the girls’ relay teams were also victorious. The 4x200 contingent won out in 1:49.31, while the 4x400 group took first in 4:17.73.
