I'm sure Wagner head coach Joe Kafka would love to see a bunch of his athletes have the opportunity to compete at the state meet. With region track on deck this week, Kafka knows only that two of his guys will be making the short trip to Sioux Falls, having pre-qualified. 


Wagner sophomore, Stephon St. Pierre has already pre-qualified in the 110 hurdles. At Tuesday's meet in MVP, St. Pierre and MVP's Tanner Risseuw had a great battle in the 110 hurdles. 


Risseuw got the win (16.01 to 16.04) but it's a good sign when a sophomore hurdler can stand in there and run side-by-side with big ole Risseuw. 


As noted, St. Pierre has already pre-qualified for the state meet. 

110m Hurdles - 15.90
1. Baloun, Cooper 14.90 Redfield/Doland        
2. Adams, Justus 15.00 SF Christian        
3. Haefs, Gavin 15.10 Lead-Deadwood        
4. Lamer, Caden 15.30 Tri-Valley        
5. Warne, Reese 15.30 Baltic        
6. DeHaai, Joel 15.70 SF Christian        
7. Gilbert, Ethan 15.70 Lennox        
8. Doeden, Jonathan 15.80 Groton Area        
9. Risseeuw, Tanner 15.80 Mt. Vernon/Plankinton        
10. St. Pierre, Stephon 15.80 Wagner

While St. Pierre hasn't qualified in the 300 hurdles, he finished 4th at MVP with a solid time of 44-flat. 


There looks to be a pretty bright future over in Wagner with some young-gun 8th-graders making some noise. 


Eighth grader, Jaden Peters is in at the state track meet, having broken the pre-qualifying standard of 11-feet. 

Pole Vault - 11'00.00"

16. Sleep, Carson 11'00.00" Spearfish

Another Wagner 8th grader to keep your eyes on is Malcom Janis. The Red-Raider soon to be 9th-grader, finished 7th in the MVP 100 meters with a good time of 12.03


Janis showed well in the 200 meters running a 23.91 200 meters to finish 5th in a ridiculously crowded 200 meters.
