Claire Ricard clears a hurdle at the Minnewaska Area track complex.  Ricard placed third in the 300 hurdles, missing state by a half-second.

The Benson-KMS boys and girls track and field teams competed at the Section 6A Track and Field Meet, Thursday at Minnewaska Area High School.

The Benson-KMS track teams were shutout from any state berths for the first time in four years as Claire Ricard was third in the 300 meter hurdles to lead the girls team, and Jon Tostenson was fourth in the 800 meter run to lead the boys.

Pequot Lakes dominated the Section 6A girls meet to win the team title, while Perham was the top team in the boys meet, despite winning just two of the 18 events.

Benson-KMS had five entrants in the girls meet and five in the boys.

The top two in each event qualified to the state track meet, along with others that meet a pre-determined state standard.

Closing out their track and field careers at Benson and KMS are Jon Tostenson, Oscar Padilla, Ellie Schiller, Chasey Ahrndt, Amiah Akerson, and Dacotah Rohner.

The State Track and Field Meet is set for June 8-9 at Hamline University....
