Bryon Schuldt was confident he would return to the state Class A track and field meet.

After winning the Subsection 8-29A title in the 3,200-meter run in 10:06.01, the Nevis eighth grader had the top seed time entering Saturday's Section 8A meet at Thief River Falls.

Schuldt lived up to that No. 1 seeding by winning the section title with a personal-best time of 10:03.03 to advance to state for the second year in a row. Crookston's Mariano Portillo finished a distant second in 10:26.53.

Schuldt will compete in his second state meet Friday at 6:05 p.m. at Hamline University in St. Paul. Schuldt finished 18th out of 18 runners at last year's state meet in the 3,200 with a time of 10:34.30. Donny Wasinger of Winona Cotter has the fastest seed time of 9:22.87.

"I'm hoping to break 10 minutes at state," said Schuldt, who became the first member of the Nevis boys track team to compete at state last spring. "Running at state last year will help me a ton as far as knowing what I should have done and what I should do again. My goals for this year at state are to hopefully run a 9:50 or better and to get up onto the podium."

The winning time in the 3,200 run gave Nevis 10 points in the team standings for 18th place. Park Rapids finished 17th with 14 points. Roseau won the team title with 95 points.

Caleb Brown led the Panthers by placing third in the pole vault by clearing 12 feet, 2 inches and joined Sean Hayes, Brock Fritze and Cody Timmons on the 4 x 400 relay team that placed sixth in 3:47.68.

The 4 x 200 relay team of Brown, Nick Abraham, Hayes and Fritze finished seventh in 1:40.76; Timmons finished seventh in the 200 dash with a time of 24.34; and Jake Grimes finished eighth in the 110 hurdles in 18.59 to round out Park Rapids' team score.

Also competing for the Panthers were Isaac Zoller in the 800 run (11th in 2:17.94), Nathan Gebhard in the 1,600 run (11th in 5:05.97) and Grimes in the 300 hurdles (10th in 45.88).
