Eleven state qualifiers, eleven state medalists.

The Byron High School track and field state qualifiers competed at the Class A state meet at Hamline University June 7-8, and all of them placed in the top nine in at least one event.

"I couldn't be happier for them," said head track coach Charro Coleman.

The Bears were led by the boys 4X100 relay team, which won a state title.

The four-man relay, made up of senior Thor Knutson, senior Jordan Hickey, junior Nate Bahr and senior Drew Fuchs, broke their own school record with a time of 44.10, outlasting Concordia Academy by a good half-second.

"In a race like that, that's a considerable lead," Coleman said.

The 4X200 relay, which consisted of senior Ricky Brown in the place of Bahr, placed second with a time of 1:30.95.

The medals didn't end there.

Junior Nick Sigrist placed second in the 300 hurdles with a time of 40.44; and Robert Mesenburg finished sixth in the pole vault with a height of 13 feet, six inches.

For the girls, the 4X100 relay team, made up of junior Kelsey VonBerg, senior Jillian Krier, junior Anne Christofferson and senior Camille Fawcett, ran its best time of the season to finish fourth in a time of 50.33.

"They ran a nice race," Coleman said.

Christofferson also placed fourth in the long jump with a distance of 16 feet, 11 and one half inches; Krier took fourth in the pole vault with a height of 10 feet; and VonBerg finished eighth in the 100 hurdles with a time of 16.50.
