Welcome-back win


In the field events, Lane Kaczinski swept the throws for Camanche. He won the shot put by more than a foot with a toss of 43 feet, 1.5 inches, and he went 118-4 in the discus.

“Actually, it was my best day all season in the shot put,” he said. “Yesterday, I spent a lot of time fixing my left foot. I was not turning it all the way.”

Northeast equaled Camanche by winning eight events, with Eli Kaczinski picking up firsts in the 1,600 and 800. He didn’t run the 3,200, an event in which he broke school records in three consecutive meets recently.

“I’m not disappointed; I’m glad I didn’t do it with the Drake Relays two days away,” he said of not entering the longest run of the meet. “I’m happy with the events Coach (Mike Mattis) put me in.”

Kaczinski beat West Carroll’s Jeff Casey by almost nine seconds as he won the 1,600 in 4:49.00. The 800 was closer, but he still won my a comfortable margin. He took the lead at 100 meters and slowly widened the gap to win by more than two seconds in 2:04.96.

The Rebels also got individual wins from Christian Knutsen in the 3,200 (10:58.06), Ryan Murphy in the 110 hurdles (16.35), Axel Dondiego in the high jump (6-0) and Nick Kennicker in the 400 hurdles (59.30) after finishing second, one-hundredth of a second behind Murphy in the 110s.

“I’m a cross country runner, so (the 400 hurdles) comes easier for me,” Kennicker said. “I still want to get two seconds faster to qualify for state. My goal is to qualify for state in the four-by-800 and the 400 hurdles.”

Kennicker led off Northeast’s winning entry in the 3,200 relay, as he, Will Hasken, Gabe Empen and Nick Anderson won by more than 27 seconds in 8:43.80. The Rebels’ other win came from Mitchel Moehr, Nick Wall, Hasken and Anderson in the 1,600 relay. Their time of 3:49.20, was more than 15 seconds better than runner-up Maquoketa.
