Dawgs Sending Eight To State

The Minden Whippets track and field team put a bow on the 2016 season by competing in the Class B-5 district meet held in Aurora at Aurora High School in warm and breezy conditions.
Minden was able to get eight athletes qualified for the 2016 Nebraska Schools Activities Association State Track and Field Championships held on May 20-21 at Omaha Burke Stadium.
State qualifiers for the Minden boys included state returner senior Leobardo Iniguez who was a district champion in both the 1,600 and 3,200-meter runs. Junior Chase Smith will be making his second straight state appearance, winning the 400-meter district title and placing third in the 200-meters.
