HERINGTON — Canton-Galva Junior High’s track and field teams competed earlier this week in the Wheat State League Championships, with the seventh-grade boys taking second for the spotlight performance.

C-G’s Tyson Struber had another tremendous meet by setting a league record in all four of the events he won — 100, 200, triple jump and high jump. Morgan Becker doubled in the 800 and 1,600, with his teammate Christian Darrah second in both events. Becker’s 1,600 time was a school and league record.

Madison Leach, for the eighth-grade girls, was another standout, winning the 100 hurdles and 200 hurdles and had a second in the long jump. For the eighth-grade boys, Brayden Minson won the discus and 800 and added a third in the shot.
