MICDS Standout Loses Shot at 3,200 Title; Sectional Track; Bartelsmeyer Still in Four Events at the State Meet

The sectional meet was forced to go an extra hour after the Class 3 girls 300-meter hurdles was rerun. The first time the event was run during the meet there was a flight of hurdles that were not set to the proper height and the timer did not start when the gun went off. …
