BPS Invitational
We had an awesome day at the BPS Invite held at the Bismarck Bowl on Tuesday April 23. We finally had a good weather day at a track and field meet and the nice weather helped our athletes’ performances.
The highlight of the day came from the 400-meter race where Parker Schuster and Ethan Dennis both qualified. Ethan finished 7th with a time of 51.17.
Parker’s time of 49.90 set a new school record that was held by Tyler Bates in 2013 at 50.13. The competition is very good when a time like Parker’s is still 3rd place. First and second were 48.32 and 48.86. Parkers time currently ranks him 4th in Class A.
