With Riley Gorham winning three events and Clif Kugler adding two more victories to his season total, the Hardin-Central Bulldogs had little trouble in winning the Class 1, District 5 track meet held Saturday in Marshall.
Gorham chalked up victories in the 1,600 and 800 meters by setting new district records. He also captured the 3,200 meters as well. Kugler won the triple jump, high jump and the shot put.

The Bulldogs ended the day with 164 points, while Glasgow was the runner-up with 147 points, followed by Wellington-Napoleon with 68 points and Slater with 58 in the 17-team field.
Gorham, the Bulldog freshman, continued his dominance in the distance races. He turned in the winning time of 4 minutes, 51.03 seconds in the 1,600 meters and 11:10.24 in the 3,200 meters. He also grabbed another first with a time of 2:07.16 in the 800.
It was a busy day for Hardin-Central senior Lisa Stellansdottir at Saturday’s Class 1, District 5 meet held in Marshall. The Lady Bulldog won four events to help Hardin-Central to a fourth-place finish.
