Section 7AA Track & Field results:  Going against the tough competition at last week’s Section 7AA finals, the Princeton track & field squads had one entry break through to reach State. The girls 4×200 relay of junior Katie Bialka, freshman Taylor Laabs, sophomore Anna Oakes and senior Maddy Wood placed second with their time of 1:48.3 to advance.

The girls will run in the June 7 prelims at the Class AA Meet held on the Hamline University track (10:30 a.m.). Top times will return for the finals on Saturday morning.

Senior thrower Jadyn Bonasera closed out her career by placing third in the discus at 127-08 and fifth in the shot put at 35-10. Another close call for State came when the Princeton girls’ 4×100 of Bialka, Laabs, Oakes and Wood took third at 51.6– 23/100s of a second out of second.
