The St. John-Hudson Tigers boys and girls teams had some tough competition at the La Crosse Invitational track meet with the boys placing fifth and the girls placing seventh.

At the Seventh Annual La Crosse Invitational Track Meet held last Thursday, the pickings were kind of slim as the St. John-Hudson boys wound up in fifth place, while the girls took seventh, both going up against some tough competition. Most of the teams came from the CPL while three teams were outside the league.

Highlights for the Tiger boys had sophomore Trey Fisher taking the gold in the 800 Meters, and the boys 4x800 Meters, comprised of Trey Fisher, Cashe McVey, Dylan Reed, and Quincy Smith also took the gold.

Getting the silver was A.J. Miller in the 1600 Meters.

St. John seniors Smith and Chase Fisher both took the bronze, Smith in the 400 Meter Dash, and Fisher in the High Jump.

Two more relays wound up in fourth place. The 4x400 Meter comprised of Trey Fisher, McVey, Dylan Reed and Smith, and the Weight Relay.

The Lady Tiger were led by senior Torre Fisher taking the silver in the 400 Meters, and Paige Doran taking the silver in the 100 Meter Hurdles.

St. John’s 4x400 Meter Relay, comprised of Fisher, Erin Crissman, Dayton Long and Melissa Williamson took the bronze.

Fourth place finishes went to Fisher in the 800 Meters, and Tara Nelson in the Javelin.
