Humboldt won nine events and claimed the team title of their home track meet on Thursday, April 12. The meet, organized over the last several days due to inclement weather, featured several north central Iowa schools who ran their first meet this season after cancellations.

Humboldt totaled 165.5 points to top runner-up Forest City at 157.

Denny Pederson was a double winner for the Wildcats, winning the 200 and 400 meters. Quinton Orr and Joseph Kunert ran 1-2 in the 1,600 and 3,200 meters. Jamison Heinz won the long jump and the shuttle hurdle relay also took first. Humboldt also won the 4x100, 4x400 and 800 sprint medley relays.

Next action for the Wildcats will be at Webster City on Tuesday, April 17.
