Swanson a state qualifier; Eagles score 14 at district

Ty Swanson’s win in the 800 at the district track meet at Ord Thursday, May 10, led the way of the Eagle scoring in the meet. The win automatically puts him in the state meet. He also figured in the fifth-place finish with the 4 X 800 relay, one of the two other events in which Wood River scored in the meet that was won by the host team.

Swanson fought off a surge in the final 100 meters to win by a second over the 800 runner from St. Paul. The top three finishers came across the line within two seconds of each other. The Eagle sophomore came in with a time of 2:02.94. He also high jumped in the meet.
