Busch 4th, Simon 5th at state track meet

New Prague High School’s four representatives at the state track meet last weekend had mixed results. Two of the four athletes placed in the top five, while two others failed to make the finals in their events.

Kristin Busch, a senior, took fourth in the triple jump, with a leap of 35 feet, 11 inches. Last year she placed fifth in the event. Prior Lake’s Megan Brandeland repeated as state champion with a distance of 36-10.

Busch ends her career with the New Prague High School record in that event, with a leap of 37-1 1/2.
